Robert Mangino

Robert Mangino hosts the KDKA Afternoon News, weekdays from 3-7 pm. Previously, he hosted weeknights on NewsRadio 1020 KDKA since Feb. 15, 2010 moving to the 7-11pm shift in September of 2012. KDKA listeners also knew him from guest-hosting on Saturday nights, for Fred Honsberger and weeknights before Mike Pintek came back where he belongs. Robert brings a fresh perspective to KDKA. No talking points from the left or right, just one man’s perspective on the news that impacts us all — along with an open and honest (sometimes painful) look at life.

Robert lives in New Castle and has a teenage daughter Rachel.
