Hey everybody! I'm glad to be back visiting with you on a daily basis. If you've ever listened to Mid Ohio's Country WNCO, then we're probably already friends. If not , let me introduce myself. I'm Matt Appleby, a Lexington native and Ashland High School graduate who's been on the air in mid Ohio since the winter of 1980. And yes that is my real name (who'd make that up?) My wife Kelly and I make our home in Mansfield and our daughter Sara is out on her own working as a case manager RN for a home health care agency. And while this is my first opportunity to DJ on Y105, I have been a fan of this station for a long time and I love the music. I'd be glad to have you as a Facebook friend, too. Thanks for tuning in weeknights on Y105!
Think teens text behind the wheel more than adults? Think again.
According to a recent AT&T survey, nearly half of adults (49 percent) admitted to texting while driving, compared to only 43 percent of teens.
The scariest thing – 98 percent of the adults who admitted to texting while driving said they were well aware that it was a dangerous activity – but they did it anyway. 60 percent of those adults said they were not texting behind the wheel three years ago.
"I was a little bit surprised," said Charlene Lake, AT&T's senior vice president of public affairs. "It was sobering to realize that texting while driving by adults is not only high, it's really gone up in the last three years." (USA Today)
