It’s not often the Tony award winning star of a Broadway musical joins a traveling cast but Pittsburgh’s own Billy Porter had a lifelong goal he wanted to accomplish.
Porter joined the KDKA Morning News with Larry Richert and John Shumway to talk about appearing in Pittsburgh CLO’s Kinky Boots, his latest album and why making a rare off-Broadway appearance in his hometown was important to him.
A contestant on “Jeopardy!” generated some buzz Monday night with a guess at the final question. But, the humorous guess has a Pittsburgh connection.
Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. To honor Dr. King’s legacy, PNC is debuting 12 oral histories of prominent African Americans in western Pennsylvania.
He grew up here, went to high school and then college here, but Billy Porter said he was never ready for what happened in his hometown today.
The Tony Awards were handed out last night in New York and a Pittsburgher took home one of the top honors.
