Meet the Tour Guides
"I grew up here then moved away for several years, but I couldn't wait to come back," says Shelley Rodgers, a senior producer at KDKA, the local CBS station. "I'm so happy to raise my son in my hometown, where everyone is friendly and helpful." She and Drew frequent North Park and the Pittsburgh Zoo. "There's tons to do. You just have to get out and enjoy," she says. Good advice, no matter where you live!
