Pat Chiesa
Sports Reporter


Pat Chiesa was born and raised in South Park, Pennsylvania--about a half hour south of Pittsburgh. He graduated from South Park High School and went on to attend Ohio University, earning a Bachelor of Science in broadcast journalism.

While in Athens, Pat served as co-sports director of WOUB-TV, a PBS affiliate. He reported for several sports-themed shows, including award-winning programs "Gridiron Glory" and "The Bobcat Sports Showcase." Pat also completed internships with Pittsburgh media outlets WTAE-TV (ABC) and KDKA-FM (CBS) before joining WHIZ in February of 2014.

Pat is proud to once again call Southeast Ohio home. He is familiar with the Zanesville area, having covered Muskingum Valley League football for "Gridiron Glory," and contests that sports fans in the Y-City are some of the most passionate he's ever seen.

Pat's greatest sports memories include reporting on Ohio football's upset win over Penn State in the fall of 2012, interviewing 2013 NL MVP Andrew McCutchen and living in Pittsburgh during the Pirates' 2013 playoff run.

In his free time, Pat enjoys playing everything from soccer to golf. He's a big fan of coffee, music and spontaneous road trips. His favorite athlete is his sister, Christie, a midfielder on the Central Michigan University women's soccer team.

Feel free to drop Pat an email with any story ideas, or just to say hello!
