Condolences to family & friends of Eleanor Schano who has passed away.
She was Pgh’s first female solo news anchor at WPXI when it was
as WIIC – was also the city’s first female TV news reporter, weathercaster, and commercial announcer – with a decades long pioneering career.

Heartbreaking/ Eleanor Schano trail blazer for women in media. Lovely, strong and a friend to all of us. Covid took her from us.

Remembering a true trailblazer. Eleanor Schano was #Pittsburgh’s first female commercial announcer & first female weathercaster. She continued her strong list of “firsts” at WQED as the host of “LifeQuest,” the nation’s first television program for older adults.
