Steelers Parade and Rally
Today I was down Pittsburgh for the Steelers Parade and Rally at the Point. Of course there were tons of reports and news stations gathering thier footage and soundbite. I don't know if you watched the WTAE broadcast of the event. But a report tried to get an interview and approach Randel El and called him by another name twice. The reporter had no clue that was Randel El they were talking to. After the reported called him the wrong name Randel El told the reporter he would not do an interview. I thought it was rather funny because everyone knows who Randel El is because he is a big name player. That not only made the WTAE look really bad but also the reporter. If you are going to cover events such as these the reporter should have done research if he/she was not familiar with the players. WTAE prides itself on being the official coverage for the Steelers and they have reporters who do not know who the big name players are.
