Hi Dee - I disagree about Marty - he's a softball pitcher with Onarato and Ravenstahl. He only gets on the guys who can't fight back. Remember when Mike Pintek went after Onarto, he was replaced rather quickly. No - Marty will always soft peddle the local politicos as long as they appear on his show. He really kisses up to Onarato.

I agree totally. When someone sounds tough and rasies there voice, that doesn't mean the person asking the question is actually trying to find out the truth. It just means that it makes for good radio. "HINT' To KDKA. If you do read this and understand we the people are the ones that give you ratings, let a average caller the privalage to sit in on a certain day, let us ask 5 questions to a guest of local intersest, and see how they answer to Joe Q. Public. By the way it is us whom they represent, and there are Questions I'm sure they could answer and gather support for a lot of projects. I do not live in Pittsburgh but none the less if you can brag about your radius you should be able to cover that radius

I enjoy Marty's show and I have to admit I hated Kevin Miller when he forst good on, he hung on so many people when they didn't feel the same way he did I just didn't care for his show now he has mended his ways and I have to admit I now like his show and listen a few days a week to his. Marty I tune into every morning.

Here's another bitch about KDKA - why do they reduce their power at 12:00 midnight? To save money? The reception sucks. The most powerful radio station allowed by law and they just halfway shut down at midnight. It would be better if they just went off the air and tell us listeners that they don't care about the late night audience. MIller's stupid anyhow.

Please did some delete my post about Old Cynic's question. I gave the answer and now its gone. If its someone at KDKA I would find that quite odd. I just told the truth.

I agree with so many of these statements. What happened to KDKA? I do listen to the morning show but turn it off as soon as I hear Marty Griffin's Whine at Nine. I miss Mike Pintek. I will listen to John Steigerwald, he puts the Pittsburgh accent back on KDKA for a while. The late night has totally gone to pot. It's just like drone, impersonal. I miss Cookie lady and Smacky the Clown. Saturdays? Yuck. And Rob Pratt says "well" at least once every paragraph. And he speaks in paragraphs.

Marty Griffin is the best host KDKA radio has. I tune into him everyday. He knows how to put these elected people in there place and isn't afraid to call them on what they do wrong. Marty is on the little guys side for sure. Keep up the good work Marty.

I agree with the poster who said Rob Pratte said "well" in every other sentence. I also cannot stand John Steigerwald-put him back in sports. He mumbles and talks over everyone who calls denying the opportunity to make a point.

I see also that the night lounge is gone-nothing is left that is entertaining but Dr. Knowledge. what has happened here!

Trouble is - Lynn;s a little bit to the left of Mother Thersa. Last thing the area needs is more lefties walking in lockstep with the Demo's.

Why is it all wats a problem with younz people going after the Left? If you honestly belive THE RIGHT is always correct about everything then isn't that a one party system? The fear of challenge scares all of younz, but all being on the same band wagon makes you belive your right. I do belive some of younz would even elect Kim Jong Il, as long as it was the popular think to do. Most of younz are lead by popular hosts of shows or radio programs. I don't belive the World really cares about Hannity or Rushs opinion. They just sit back and laugh at us.

The morning news is great!..... I hate to say it Folks but Marty needs to go ... Put John Steigerwald on at 9am. Put Paulson in there at Kevens noon till 3pm slot . The Honz Man Rocks Your world at 3pm. 5 and 6 oclock total news hour is a winner. 7pm call it The night time is the right time for Miller Time.
Over night people like a local host to talk with lets try Carol Lee Esby over night on Kdka Pittsburgh. I think thats a winner. What do you think?

Bring back Valeri Abati, and make a big splash about it the way Bologna is coming back to WPXI. Abati was great. And if you let Sonni leave...you may as well fold up the tent.

This would be a good line up Big AL. I Hope the management sees this post so they take Marty off the air as he crys way to much. Heck about a month or two ago all we heard about was him driving around and almost getting beat up from road rage. I turned off the radio and have not listened to his show I have to go with Quinn and Rose not that I want to but Marty is just that bad. Staggy would be a good choice for morning I agree with you there.
I like Carol Lee as she was always entertaining on the weekends. Keven would be a good choice for the evenings. I would like to see what Staggy would do with all the morning people and Ravenstull That would be real good entertainment for us old timers.

Kevin Miller is doing a good job and now needs to be silenced on his political views. Very hard to believe that happening in America. I think he is fair and logical.
As for Marty, he is so annoyiny, repeats himself all the time and a major whiner.
Did KDKA ever consider an intelligent well rounded female daytime talk show host? Wouldnt be a bad idea...

When small time radio talk show hosts like Mr. Honsberger or Miller try to act like the "big boys" they seem to get awfully close to the "incite to riot" law. Some of the background music and clips chosen during discussions leave a great deal to be desired...courtesy and civility are foreign words to these blowviators. Pittsburghers deserve better from KDKA who can deliver better.
