PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Normally, KDKA Radio’s Mike Pintek listens and responds to the comments of his callers. But now he has a chance to introduce a new generation to the world of talk radio.
He spent three hours on the air interacting with high school-aged students from Ambridge High School about their most talked about concerns. Pintek touched on subjects like texting and driving, Facebook posts, illegal immigration and even the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” accident.
Mike presented the statistics of accidents that occur while texting and driving. The students weren’t surprised by the results, but they surprised him when they responded that even with the new laws in place, people still do it.
One girl explained that she even takes the phone away from her mother while she is driving, so she can be her “designated texter.”
