Listener Comments and Reviews
I am soooo disappointed with the new format!! I loved Mark Carbonaro and I learned so much about what was going on locally, statewide and nationally. He had great local, state and national guests on, along with the fact that one could call in and talk with Mark or even the person he was interviewing.
If this format continues, you will definitely lose me as a dedicated 6-9 listener. I realize you probably want to reach a younger demographic, but this type of programming is available everywhere!! Local people/Local talk - that's what's so hard to find.

Well Rhonda McCormack, I guess KION radio has just put another nail in your own coffin. When I got tired of the drivel from KSCO, Santa Cruz, I found KION 1460 many years ago and was impressed and became a loyal listener. Then you dropped Michael Savage, one of the best in the business and inserted roger Hedgecock, a move I didn't like, but Roger is very good. Then you dropped the excellent Rusty Humphries and inserted the loser John Gibson (probably a cram down from Fox). And Hannity can get tiresome with all the yelling at and over talking callers etc. At this point I started looking on line for my talk radio fix, and listening less and less to KION. One of the real bright spots was Mark Carbonero in the morning and I listened regularly. Now you have replaced him with of all people Armstrong and Getty (junk radio at its best). What are you thinking? Now, the only good programs left to listen to are Beck, Hedgecock and a few weekend shows. Well two programs do not a radio station make. My best guess is that you will lose listenership and advertising much like KGO has seen, after they made stupid changes. I know you have lost most of my listening and patronizing. My radios are no longer set on KION and left there.

Really really unhappy that Mark Carbonaro is gone and replaced by two hosts from Sacramento that are like radio lite - disgusting. Really not worth listening to at all. Mark was one of the best and easy to listen to even on difficult to think about topics. He was not afraid to take on hard topics. He also had a great sense of humor and deep knowledge as well as a community minded spirit. His show went from local to national to world and back again. Now one of the last shows worth listening to is gone. I sure hope a local station picks him up. I won't be supporting or listening to KION. It has gone the way of KGO.

Disappointed that kion replaced mark c w/ armstrong & getty who you can hear on sf radio. We have lost the last monterey salinas local flavor radio. No need to waste a preset on 1460 when I can hear all the programming on other stations.
