Bob Allen

boballen Bob AllenBob Allen joined the KDKA-TV team in January 2000 as a General Assignment reporter.

Bob began his broadcasting career in 1979 at Beaver Falls radio station WBVP. From there, he went on to WKBN Radio in Youngstown. His first television job was also in Youngstown — at WYTV.

Since then, he’s worked at TV stations in Memphis, Louisville, Kentucky and Toledo, Ohio. Most recently, Bob spent three years as a General Assignment reporter and part-time anchor at the NBC affiliate in Kansas City.

During the Gulf War crisis, Bob also worked at KDKA-TV, providing hourly updates during the early morning hours.

After working at six television stations since 1982, Bob is finally fulfilling his dream of working as a reporter in his hometown — a goal that he set for himself “many years ago.”

A Langley High School graduate, Bob attended Penn State University and Point Park College. In addition to his son Ryan, Bob’s parents and four sisters also call Pittsburgh home.
