What are Pittsburghers talking about? Find out weeknights at 8 p.m. on NIGHTTALK, the market’s first and only live, primetime TV news/talk show.

For 15 years, NIGHTTALK has been the source for the latest news, hottest debates, and most intriguing stories -- straight from the mouths of the newsmakers themselves.

NIGHTTALK delivers compelling guests nightly from the worlds of politics, sports, business, entertainment, academia, the arts, and more. Recent guests have included:

• Political Commentator and former advisor to President Bill Clinton, Dick Morris • Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell • Fox News Senior Legal Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano • Former U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh • Rock legend and activist Ted Nugent • World-renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht • Pro wrestling legend Bruno Sammartino • Olympic figure skater Sasha Cohen • Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma • Pittsburgh Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle • NASA astronaut, Pittsburgh native, and member of the final space shuttle Endeavour crew Col.

NIGHTTALK is hosted by veteran broadcaster, trial attorney, and news & sports analyst Ellis Cannon. No topic is off limits for Ellis -- scandals, corruption, Wall Street, pop culture, music… even love & relationships.

In addition to calling the live one-hour show at 412-333-PCNC, viewers can email the program anytime at NIGHTTALK@wpxi.com.

Every other Monday, as a special treat for Pittsburghers, NIGHTTALK focuses specifically on policy issues of importance to our home base. RODDEY & MISTICK ON NIGHTTALK features two longtime political foes (and friends!), James Roddey and Joseph Sabino Mistick. Although both men share strong backgrounds in politics and business, their respective right/left viewpoints on the hot issues of the day are usually at odds!

On Fridays, NIGHTTALK transforms into GET TO THE POINT!  Three panelists – usually Southwestern PA Legislators including the City of Pittsburgh Politicians, Business Leaders, Community Activists and other news makers – join host, Lenny McAllister, for lively discussion and get to the point on timely issues of importance to the PCNC audience. The panelists share their expertise, knowledge, and opinions for an in-depth conversation on the critical topics of the week.  Join the panel LIVE from 8:00-9:00 PM on Fridays via Twitter @NightTalkGTTPLM or e-mail NightTalkGTTP@wpxi.com.

Reaching more than 850,000 homes throughout Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, and Northern West Virginia, NIGHTTALK is live weeknights at 8 p.m. on the Pittsburgh Cable News Channel (PCNC), the cable arm of Pittsburgh’s NBC affiliate, WPXI-TV.
