PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — Even as Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was preparing to announce his retirement, hundreds of the Penn State faithful gathered outside Paterno’s home in State College last night in a show of support for the coach and the six decades he has spent with the school’s football program.

NewsRadio 1020 KDKA’s Mike Pintek talks with Jon Burton, sports anchor and reporter at SportsRadio 93-7 The Fan, about the scene on Paterno’s lawn last night. 

Burton, who reported from the rally outside the famed coach’s home, tells Mike why the scene seemed so bizarre in the wake of the sex scandal that has rocked the school, and why he won’t forget the night for the rest of his life.
