Dear Friends of 1480 WCNS:
It is with tremendous sadness that we announce to you the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Dow Carnahan. Those of us who had the great pleasure of knowing Dow can attest to the fact that he was a true gentleman and consummate professional who was always gracious and friendly with co-workers, listeners, clients, guests, and the general public.
For over 30 years, Dow Carnahan served numerous roles for 1480 WCNS - Latrobe, including morning news anchor, talk show host, Operations Manager, and sports broadcaster for Greater Latrobe High School football and basketball as well as St. Vincent College football and basketball. In 2015, he was recognized by the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters (PAB) for Outstanding Radio Coverage of a Local Sports Event for his play-by-play call of the 2014 St. Vincent College Basketball - PAC Championship Game. Dow also received the PAB's Outstanding Local Radio Newscast Award in 2013 and 2014.
To say that Dow will be missed would grossly understate the enormity of our loss. His dedication to his profession, the Station and the Westmoreland County community were simply unmatched. We truly lost a local legend.
