    Dear Patrice,

    I have been watching you since your career on KDKA began. We are the same age, so in a sense, we grew up together! I watched with sadness, but also respect as you said good-bye. You are a woman of dignity, dedication, and compassion. I will sorely miss you on KDKA. I must say, I cried as you said good-bye! I feel as if I’ve lost a friend! Best wishes and much happiness! Beth

    Patrice I grew up watching you on KDKA. It has been a pleasure having you in my living room every evening delivering the news. It was as though a friend was delivering the news, good or bad, we knew it was going to be okay. I will miss you! Tell Jon Burnett not to retire soon, he is my other favorite!

    Patrice: Best of luck to you in the future. I will miss seeing you every day on the news. Lauren and my daughter, Elise, danced at PYB together many years ago and I never forgot your kindness and sense of humor. Thank you for sharing so many years with Pittsburgh.

  24. Jim says:

    Patrice, you have been a staple in our homes through good times and bad and through it all you have remained professional, graceful, and caring, It is always sad to see someone leave, but you have left all of your viewers with filled hearts and gratitude for the past 33 years, Best of luck to you and your family in the next chapter of your lives.

  25. Jamie Torboli says:

    Patrice, I echo a lot of other people’s comments. I also began watching you from the beginning of your career. We are also the same age and our kids were born about the same time as well. I know our sons played against each other in a basketball tournament at the LeMoyne Center in Washington. I couldn’t tell you which team won, but I remember you made it a point to go up to my son and congratulate him on a good game. (I think Guy’s dad was coaching??). I must say I was emotional when I first heard you were leaving. Of all the tv personalities, I identify with you the most. I think its fantastic that you get the opportunity to start a new chapter of your life enjoying your family and enjoying life. You deserve nothing but the best and I wish you all the luck in the world.

  26. Amy Reddinger says:

    When I think of KDKA, one of the first things that pops into my mind is Patrice King Brown. When I first read of your retirement, I was devastated… I felt like I was losing a family member. I couldn’t watch the newcast on Friday (your last day)… not because I wasn’t interested in what was happening around the viewing area or because I didn’t wanna see the smiling faces at KDKA. I couldn’t watch because I couldn’t bare to say good-bye to a friend I have come to love and trust. So instead it has taken me 3-days to watch the tributes to you via the internet… with my huge box of tissues at hand. Although we have never met, I feel as if I have known you all of my life.

    May God’s love and blessings be upon you now, tomorrow and in the years ahead. Good luck to you and remember… you made a difference in the lives of MANY people!!!

    God Bless you my friend,

  27. Mary Beth says:

    Patrice, the tears are hitting the keyboard as I write this, but I feel I had to tell you I feel like I lost a good friend, You are such a part of my Pgh past.
    I remember sitting in the audience one day watching you and Dennis Miller in the early days down at Gateway Center. Those were the days of a very vibrant Pittsburgh and you were part of the soul of Pgh to me.
    I know you are making a good move for yourself and family, and I wish you the very best.

  28. Sherry says:

    Patrice, you are a beautiful person with the soul of an angel, I have enjoyed your many years on KDKA. God bless you and keep you and your family for many years ahead.

  29. Ken Hawk says:

    Patrice King-Brown is everyone a television personality should aspire to be. Her unique ability to transition from talk show hostess to serious journalist is a talent that very few have. She is a true professional, and even when she read a hard-news story, you could still feel the warmth from her that touched so many lives for so many years. Patrice, thank you for giving so much of yourself to Pittsburgh, and your colleagues as well. Self included.
