TV Note: A remembering 'Pops' special

Saturday, April 14, 2001

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette TV Editor

WQED TV and radio will honor the late Willie Stargell by rebroadcasting two specials featuring the former Pirate.

WQED TV will air an episode of Fred Rogers' "Old Friends...New Friends: Willie Stargell." The "Old Friends" series featured profiles of people who have made a difference in the world. It was produced by "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" producers Family Communications. For this episode, Rogers visited with Stargell at home with his family and during training.

"Old Friends...New Friends: Willie Stargell" airs Monday at 10:30 p.m.

WQED-FM's (89.3) "Bayer Sunday Arts Magazine" will rebroadcast a recording of Stargell narrating "New Morning for the World," which combined the words of Martin Luther King Jr. with music by Joseph Schwantner and the Eastman School of Music Orchestra. It airs Sunday at 4 p.m. on WQED and on WQEJ-FM (89.7) in Johnstown.

RADIO SHUFFLE: Garrett Hart is joining Steel City Media, owner of WLTJ-FM (92.9) and WRRK-FM (96.9) in the newly created position of operations manager for the two stations. He starts April 19. Hart was previously program director for WDVE-FM (102.5), which he left in October. Before that he was operations manager for a group of stations in Appleton, Wis. He also worked locally at the former WXXP-FM (now WZPT-FM [100.7]).

Dave LaBrozzi is the new operations manager for two of Clear Channel's stations here: WWSW-FM (94.5) and WJJJ-FM (104.7). LaBrozzi was previously program director for WMAK-FM in Nashville. He replaces Chris Ostrander, who left for a job with Disney World. LaBrozzi starts April 23.

"LAW & ORDER" DEPARTURE: The door continues to revolve at NBC's top-rated legal/crime drama. Angie Harmon will leave "Law & Order" early next season.
