Meet our host

Host, comedianne, and news junkie Morgan Moody is a storyteller and native Pittsburgher who loves the city in all its complexity. Join her for 15 minutes a day as she sits down with culture and news makers, artists and activists, and people who love and hate this city. Each weekday she has the conversations — messy and ardent — that help listeners understand the city’s problems, and its joys, too.

Why launch City Cast in Pittsburgh? 

Pittsburgh is a boisterous city with incredible natural beauty and some of the friendliest — and quirkiest — people on the planet. It’s also in the midst of incredible change: A new mayor. New companies locating here from around the world. Movements to remake parts of the region that were thrown into disarray after industrial decline and urban planning mistakes. We really do face some of the most pressing issues of our time, right here in Pittsburgh. But we’re not only concerned with big and important issues. We want to have fun and experience everything the city has to offer, too: Great restaurants, incredible events, music, art, sports. We’re here to experience and share it all! The good and the bad, the weird and the amazing. We’re here with you — to embolden Pittsburghers’ deep passion and pride for the Steel City, and to tell its story together. City Cast will keep Pittsburghers informed and impassioned at a turning point in our city’s history.
