Proof That Philadelphia Is Jealous Of Pittsburgh

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.

    Philadelphia sucks at EVERYTHING, what a GARBAGE city. How many times does Travel and Leisure magazine amongst others need to tell Philly they are the ugliest, dirtiest, fattest, most unfriendly city in America? Oh and guess what Philly, the Flyers and Eagles SUCK too.

  2. John says:

    wow, with citizens like Jack it’s a surprise we aren’t the envy of the entire nation or world for that matter.

    PNC is more centrally located in Pittsburgh. It only makes sense that their operations are here. Philadelphia is a great city and everything, but you have to look at the cost of business as well. Philly loses. Pittsburgh has a lot in common with Midwest cities, but it’s still not Midwestern. I don’t know why people think the Midwest is such a horrible place. I guess a lot of people are just too ignorant to go visit or look at a map.

    It is called Pittsburgh National Bank not Philadelhia National Bank

      Where’s the C?

    The WESTERN half of PA should break away and create its own state. With our mineral wealth everyone in WPA could have a much higher standard of living. As it stands Philly and vicinity will continue to take our money.
