Pittsburgh, Tom Hanks, Pittsburgh Steelers discussed on The KDKA Radio Afternoon News with Robert Mangino

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

A radio. Rachel. Sorry about that. How to get another sip coffee. Did you know the wallet hub has a story out today about the best coffee cities in the country? And that Pittsburgh comes in at number eighteen number eighteen in the entire country for coffee now, I don't know about you. I think that's really cool because when I think of cities and coffee, I think of obviously New York not only for just getting coffee. But because there are so many different cultures that are there and their particular take on coffee, you think about New York. And then you also think about Seattle with Starbucks saying Seattle's best in everything and then Portland Oregon's another one because of the proximity copy really big there, Chicago, I think Pittsburgh being in the top twenty is pretty impressive. It was also kind of surprised at when I was going through the rankings that. Cleveland is just terrible for coffee. If you like coffee do not move there. You gotta go someplace else almost any place. They're in Toledo to understand. Why Ohioans don't like their coffee because Columbus ranked really low as well. But Pittsburgh right up there. We'll talk more about that coming up a little bit later on. In fact, I have a post up on my Facebook page to about the places you like to go for coffee, and we'll give you more on that a little bit later today is national voter registration day. Are you registered to vote? Are you? It's surprises me that not everyone over eighteen is registered that doesn't make any sense. Why not be registered to vote especially in overwhelming numbers? I mean, there may be some outliers out there who say I don't care. It doesn't make a difference. I don't want to be involved, but especially in this day and age you think you'd have like ninety percent voter registration and crazy turnout. But apparently, it's just not the case. Well, what I wanna do is talk about that right now. And with me on the disk. Pittsburgh Newsline is Stephanie young communications director when we all vote. Stephanie welcomed the KKK radio. Good to have you. Thanks so much for having me special event happening this evening in Pittsburgh to encourage people to get registered to vote. Tell us about it. Yes. So what is a national nonpartisan nonprofit organization whose mission is to change the culture around, boating and increase participation in this election. But also in every election this initiative was launched by a co-chairs. Michelle Obama, Tom Hanks, Paul faith hill, and Tim McGraw and really excited about our week of action were in right now as you mentioned today national voter registration day, and what we decided why not make a week out of it and work with folks around the community around the country rather to host events on every community possible.
