NewsRadio 1020 KDKA is hosting a call center from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday, World Autism Awareness Day. Parents, therapists, psychologists and resource providers will be available through Autism Speaks Pittsburgh to answer questions.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week reported that one in 68 children in the U.S. falls into the autism spectrum.

The hotline is 412-353-1135.

• Comcast commissioned a Harris Poll to study television binge-watching in seven of the largest viewing areas -- Pittsburgh not among them -- and discovered 82 percent of cable subscribers watch two or more episodes in one sitting.

Among other findings: The three TV characters most popular as "binge buddies" were "The Walking Dead's" Rick Grimes, "Game of Thrones' " Tyrion Lannister and "The Good Wife's" Alicia Florrick.

• Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch will be grilled April 11 at the annual 'DVE Celebrity Roast. The 6:30 p.m. event at the Omni William Penn features a dinner reception and silent auction. A portion of the proceeds goes to the honoree's Best of the Batch Foundation.

'DVE Morning Show's Randy Baumann will host, and guests include Mr. Batch's former teammates Ben Roethlisberger and Larry Foote, as well as Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert. For more information,
