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 25 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.
Bob spends the school year presenting the KDKA-TV “Extra Effort” award to local students who excel in athletics, academics and community service. In its 22nd year, Bob has visited over 700 local schools and produced feature stories on each outstanding student.
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 three times: first in 1987 for his report, “Earning Their Stripes,” a story about hockey officiating; second in 1988 for “Project Playoffs”; and lastly in 1990 for his piece, “Violence in Sports”.
Bob has won two Mid-Atlantic Emmy awards and two AP awards for play-by-play of Steeler Pre-Season games and an AP award 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.
