Marty Griffin returned to KDKA-TV as an Investigative Reporter in April of 2003.

Marty has been carrying the torch for consumers for several years. He brings his experience back to the Pittsburgh area where he was a well known investigative reporter. He received a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Ohio University.

Marty has won many awards for reporting and investigative journalism. He won a Regional Emmy for Outstanding Investigative Reporting. He has also won a Broadcast Achievement Award for an Investigative Series on a Probe of the Dallas Cowboys and Michael Irvin from The Heartland Foundation of Texas.

He is happy to return to KDKA-TV and to the Pittsburgh area where he was born and raised — and a large portion of his family still resides.
