A sports anchor for KDKA-TV News at Six and KDKA-TV News at Eleven, Bob Pompeani began his career at KDKA-TV in 1982, but his experience with hometown sports goes beyond the 33-years he’s worked at KDKA.

Growing up in an area deep in sports traditions, Bob has seen all of the biggest high school rivalries as well as met players and coaches who’ve gone on to make sports history.

In 2015 Bob was inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame.

In 1997 Bob was voted Pittsburgh’s favorite sportscaster in a reader poll of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

In 1998, Bob became the first man ever to receive the Pittsburgh Beauty Academy’s Professional Image Award — in the twenty years that PBA has handed out the honor.

Bob was also the 2000 Tri-State PGA of America Distinguished Service Award winner for outstanding contributions to local golf — getting inducted into the local Tri-State PGA Golf Hall of Fame.

Bob was inducted into the Beaver County Sports Hall of Fame in April of 2007 for his many contributions to local sports.

Bob has received the Golden Quill Award six times: first in 1987 for his report, “Earning Their Stripes,” a story about hockey officiating; second in 1988 for “Project Playoffs”; and lastly 2013 for his Pittsburgh Steeler “exclusives.”

Bob has won three Mid-Atlantic Emmy awards and eight AP awards for play-by-play of Steelers Pre-Season games and as host of the “#1 Cochran Sports Showdown.”

After graduating from Hopewell High School, Bob graduated from Point Park University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Political Science.

In between work and family time, Bob works closely with the community and is on the board of directors for the American Heart Association, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Partners for Quality Inc, and the Give the Kids the World Foundation.

Bob has also been on the Executive Committee for the Mario Lemieux Foundation since 1995 and has served as Master of Ceremonies for the “Penguins at your Service” annual black tie dinner for the past 18 years.

Bob and his wife, Lisa, reside in Robinson Township with their two daughters, Chelsea and Celina. In his free time, Bob enjoys playing golf and spending time with his family.
