Spaghetti breakfast

Former KDKA-AM morning host John Cigna's traditional free spaghetti breakfasts didn't leave the station with him.

Yesterday, Cigna was back at his old stomping grounds for the morning show's 19th annual spaghetti breakfast in Market Square.

He joined morning host Larry Richert in the mobile broadcast studio and mingled with the Market Square crowds, even joining Jimmy Sapienza and Five Guys Named Moe for a song.

Tomorrow, Cigna will be among media figures leading the parade of motorcycle riders for the annual March of Dimes Ride. Information: 1-800-4-BABIES.
