The Allegheny Front

Weekly environment reporting

Join us weekly for The Allegheny Front on WITF 89.5 & 93.3 Friday at 9:30am and 7:30pm.

The Allegheny Front is an award-winning public radio program covering environmental issues in Pennsylvania. The series broadcasts on stations throughout the commonwealth.

The Allegheny Front began in 1991 on WYEP 91.3 FM as a new urban environmental consciousness was strengthening in Pittsburgh. As originally created by volunteer Lucy Laffitte, who coined the name after the major escarpment in the Allegheny Mountains east of Pittsburgh, the program provided environmental news, events and interviews with people active in the local environmental community.

Today, Allegheny Front reporters travel throughout the region, exploring environmental issues affecting the community through stories, interviews, news, and commentaries covering a wide variety of topics.

Hear The Allegheny Front on WITF Friday at 9:30am and 7:30pm through your radio or your smart speaker by asking it to “Play WITF”
