Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will give two separate one-on-one, sitdown interviews today that will be broadcast on Thursday by Pittsburgh television stations KDKA and WTAE.

A third local station, WPXI, has not been granted an interview by Roethlisberger.

Roethlisberger, consulting with the Steelers and also an outside public relations firm, will conduct the interviews this afternoon at Steelers headquarters.

Sports anchor Bob Pompeani of KDKA and newswoman Sally Wiggin of WTAE will conduct the separate interviews.

Roethlisberger has answered only two questions publicly since March 5, when he came under investigation for sexual assault in Georgia. Although investigators in that state declined to charge him with a crime, he was suspended for the first 4-6 games of the NFL season by commissioner Roger Goodell.

The quarterback went through behavioral evaluation and rejoined his teammates June 1. He made a statement after practice last Thursday and then answered two questions from a gaggle of reporters.
