Furries Take Over KDKA Morning News

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA)  - The 20th annual Anthrocon Convention is taking place in Pittsburgh this weekend.

To help celebrate, Razz and Tycoon took over Studio K during the Friday morning cut-in with KDKA-TV.

Watch Here:

It's the 11th time Anthrocon has come to Pittsburgh and 6,500 to 7,000 people are expected to attend a public parade Saturday at 2 p.m.

According to Visit Pittsburgh, Anthrocon will generate $ 6.3 million locally this weekend.

Visit Pittsburgh's Craig Davis said there's a bit of a love affair between Anthrocon and Pittsburgh.

"We have really embraced them over the 11 years they have been here.  It's become a spectator sport.  People like to come down and watch them, and they liked to be watched. So, it's a really great symbiotic relationship of respect for each other."
