PITTSBURGH — Everywhere we go in Steel City, curious Pittsburghers have asked us some variety of the question: What do you think about Amazon HQ2 in Pittsburgh?

We had the pleasure of discussing Amazon HQ2 bid and other topics with Pittsburgh native Heather Abraham, host of KDKA’s Pittsburgh Today Live. Check it out above.
