PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – In Pittsburgh, we believe that Philadelphia forgets that there is a western half of Pennsylvania- they say we’re just a mid-west town, call us “Little Pittsburgh,” and despise our sports teams. It turns out, some of that animosity we feel from our brother city might be jealousy.

Joe DiStefano, columnist at the Philadelphia Inquirer, wrote a scathing column about how he couldn’t believe that PNC decided to build their new skyscraper in Pittsburgh, and not Philadelphia. He argues that Philadelphia is the bigger city and more deserving of PNC’s building, and made tongue-in-cheek comments about Pittsburgh- read his article here.

KDKA-AM’s John Shumway decided to take Joe to task, and the two of them battle it out for respect for their respective cities in this podcast.
