PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Not to have  a swelled head or anything, but Pittsburgh is THE place to be.

I know what you’re thinking, “Who wants to visit Pittsburgh?”

As it urns out, Pittsburgh is on all kinds of lists for being a number one city, and most recently we were selected by National Geographic as a “Best of the World 2012.”

Reuters put us on a list of places you should visit, which includes such locales in Singapore, Oman, South Korea, and Armenia.

On top of that, it was just announced that The Economist placed Pittsburgh as number 30 most livable city in the world- the only other U.S. city on the list is Honolulu!

KDKA-AM’s Larry Richert finds out what makes Pittsburgh so great with Visit Pittsburgh’s CEO and President Craig Davis, who says we were always great, it’s just the rest of the world is finally catching up.
