It was the summer of 1964, 44 years after KDKA Radio first made history as the pioneer broadcast station to the world, that KDKA hired George Barbour, it's first ever African American reporter.  And Mr Barbour was no ordinary reporter either. He had already  been honored as a Golden Quill award recipient while working for the Pittsburgh Courier and went on to be honored again with the same award while working for KDKA.  His crowning achievement was his heroic efforts in covering the March from Selma in 1965 for KDKA which he retold to Lynne Hayes Freeland in a TV interview in 19 ..read more

KDKA Radio over the years has been know for it's right leaning talk show hosts like John Cigna, Fred Honsberger and Mike Pintek, but Mike Romigh was the counter point from the left.  Join us as Mike talks about growing up in Beaver County where he first worked in radio and how he landed a part-time fill-in opportunity and turned it into a full-time show on KDKA.  I had a great time with Mike as we shared stories of growing up listening to the greats on KDKA and dreaming about someday being on the radio and how KDKA was like reaching the pinnacle of a career.

I've enjoyed hosting all of these shows but, this one stands out because I remember listening to Roy Fox and the Fox's Den as a teenage.  I caught myself listening to him in this interview like I did back then, in wrapped attention.  Listen for yourself and tell me if at 80 he couldn't get behind a microphone and host a show again.

You probably remember Trish Beatty as the delightful voice between songs as she hosted mid-days on KDKA from 1977 until the music stopped playing, when we went all talk in 1992.  She has such great stories to tell, of the people she worked with and where in the world she calls home. I have never heard a more versatile talk show host in my life. You pick the time slot and the format and Rob can host it.  He has an ability to dive into any subject from hard news to lifestyle to sport--throw in cooking, travel, and projects around the house on his weekend magazine show. He does all tha ..read more
