Don Cannon (news anchor)
Don Cannon (birth name Donald Clark) was a television news anchor in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
He worked at WTAE-TV from 1969-94. During that time, he became a "fixture of Pittsburgh broadcasting," and was partner with Paul Long and meteorologist Joe DeNardo. Later, he was teamed with Sally Wiggin. In 1999, he returned to Pittsburgh and worked for KDKA-TV. He left that position in 2007.
He had well-publicized battles with alcoholism and depression. In 2009, he was arrested in California for failure to report for sentencing in two separate cases of driving under the influence dating back to 2007.
