PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — On Nov. 2, 1920, KDKA became the world’s first broadcast station by announcing the returns of the Harding-Cox presidential election; and 14-year-old Lucy Trecase from and her family were sitting around a crystal set listening to the historic broadcast.

Now at 107, Lucy still listens to KDKA everyday from her apartment at Concordia Lutheran Ministries in Cabot, PA, and may be the only living person left who heard that first broadcast.

KDKA AM’s Larry Richert caught up with Lucy at her retirement home in Cabot, Pa., where she dispenses her secrets to longevity, her love of KDKA, and the historic events that happened in her lifetime.
