TKC BLOG COMMUNITY HIGH PRAISE FOR KANSAS CITY TALKER PETE MUNDO!!!
It can't be all salt and snark on this blog. As always, we welcome insights and observations from our reader community about locals doing the right thing and performing exceptionally. And so, we offer this quick note from a reader sharing a perspective about a local rising star in the talk game. Checkit:
TKC READER: Is Pete Mundo now the king of political talk radio?
I know 2019 isn't what it used to be (FOR LOCAL RADIO) in the '90s or early '00s. But Mundo's star has been on the rise since coming to Kansas City. Parks and Wright used to be on local media shows that Mundo now frequents. And he was the real star of the mayoral debate a few weeks ago asking questions many in the media don't ask.
To be fair to the other hosts, it's kind of hard to be knowledgeable about issues facing the city when you spend 20 hours a week doing game shows and bad "Boomer Humor."I just hope two years from now Mundo doesn't make the same mistake Jerry Agar did and go to a bigger market only to flame out.
