On Air Hosts
Chris Moore has hosted and produced countless remarkable programs and feature reports since joining WQED in 1980. Formerly the host of the long-running "Black Horizons" and "OffQ," he is now hosting "Horizons," moderating "4802," and is a contributing producer to "Experience." The Mid-Atlantic Emmy® winner has brought to life documentaries like "Wylie Avenue Days," which focused on the heyday of Pittsburgh's Hill District. A Vietnam veteran, he has often incorporated his own life experiences in specials like "In Country," the story of his friends and comrades' return to Vietnam. Outside of WQED, Chris hosts the live call-in TV show, "Pittsburgh Now" for PCNC and has his own weekend radio show on KDKA-AM 1020.
Rick Sebak has been making TV programs for WQED since 1987. His documentaries are often called collectively "The Pittsburgh History Series," although they are individual stand-alone programs. Popular for decades, these Sebak productions include such Pittsburgh favorites as "Kennywood Memories," "Things That Aren't There Anymore," "Downtown Pittsburgh," "North Side Story," "The Strip Show," and many others. Rick has also produced a dozen national programs for PBS, including "A Hot Dog Program," "Sandwiches That You Will Like," "A Flea Market Documentary," and "A Ride Along the Lincoln Highway." In 2004, Rick was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards, one for producing and one for writing, on a program titled "Fred Rogers: America's Favorite Neighbor." He is the recipient of numerous Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards and other broadcasting honors. Rick's latest venture is a weekly series on WQED, "It's Pittsburgh & a Lot of Other Stuff," which premiered in the fall of 2010.
