This year, we welcome WPXI's Erin Clarke as Mistress of Ceremonies. Erin is an award-winning reporter who hails from New York City but spent her childhood summers and holidays visiting family in Pittsburgh. Currently a WPXI-TV presenter, Ms. Clarke has worked throughout the state of New York, most recently at NY1 News in New York City where she covered Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath, the 2015 visit of Pope Francis, and several high-profile murders of NYPD officers.
