It's time for another Pitt-focused installment of City of Champions Radio, as host Matt Gajtka welcomes staff writer Brett Tunno to discuss the Panthers men's basketball team. It's been a down year by Jamie Dixon's standards, but Pitt still has a shot at squeezing into the NCAA tournament for the third straight season - and 13th time in 14 years. Who has impressed and who has disappointed for these Panthers, who have rallied to win six of eight and have three regular-season games remaining before the crucible of the ACC tournament.
The Burgh Brew Interview series rolls on with Pitt Panthers football talk, as City of Champions Radio host Matt Gajtka welcomes staff writer Brett Tunno to the program. The guys discuss the encouraging start for Paul Chryst's team and what it might mean for the rest of Pitt's second season in the ACC. What can we expect from the dynamic offensive duo of James Conner and Tyler Boyd? Can the defense keep it up after a strong effort at Boston College? What are some potential stumbling blocks for the Panthers down the road? Matt and Brett mull over these topics and more, including a quick look at Pitt basketball and where the program is headed.
The flagship program on City of Champions Radio, Three Rivers...One Show, is back! City of Champions co-editors Matt Gajtka, Larry Snyder and Zac Weiss return to discuss an interesting opening week for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who have looked mostly strong while winning two out of their first three. What's been different about the Pens so far, and what still needs work? Also, the Pitt Panthers earned a significant victory at Heinz Field to stay in the ACC division race and the Steelers were surprisingly blown out in Cleveland.

On the latest edition of Three Rivers...One Show, Matt Gajtka welcomes City of Champions staffers Larry Snyder and Zac Weiss to examine the latest developments on the Pittsburgh sports scene.
