Listener Comments and Reviews

Just to say how grateful to have your station on the air! A devotee of your service and pleased that Sean Patrick is back aboard. Hope we did'nt lose Laura though.
By: W. Don Wilkinson on April 21, 2011

Love your station!! I also miss Laura Ingram in the mornings. THANK YOU for bringing Glenn Beck again after a short time a few years ago. I think that his program has made a huge difference in the way we look at politics and the government. America would be in a lot worse shape today if it weren't for him. I wouldn't be a Beck listener if it weren't for your station. I am a teaparty member and I keep up with politics through you. I'm not that into Rusty Humphries. Again I love your station!

Unfortunately, you no longer offer glenn beck and have replaced him with Ingraham. She's ok but Beck was your star and that's it for me! Don't mean to be rude but it will now be Rush for me and most of my friends during that time period. You did this once before for some reason and you should realize Beck has a very loyal listening base. Today is Nov 5, 2011. Regards, Roberta Caswell
By: roberta caswell on November 5, 2011

I have tried to adapt to Ingraham, but I just can't do it. What a lineup you had - Beck, Sullivan and Larsen. They got me through the day. Beck was your star and you got rid of him. I will now be switching to Rush in the mornings and probably just stay over there. You have lost a loyal listener and I would guess that I am not the only one!

Why do you remove the final hour of Bill Bennett's, Morning in America program, to replace it with the pair of idiots ? We misssed the conversation with Paul Ryan this morning--hes one of the few intelligent people left in Washington. Nevada needs to hear what these leaders have to say ! What a useless schedule you bring us after 5AM !
By: James Alexander on January 3, 2012

Why on earth did you pick up Coast to Coast? They are the reason I left AM radio at night. Poor choice, I think. Who I really miss is Doug McIntyre, but know you couldn't help losing him. What about Handle on the Law during that time period?
By: Zona on February 19, 2012

It's Tuesday February 20 and I was very pleased to hear over this last weekend that Bill Manders would be joining your station starting today. I am listening to his show as this is being composed. I was also very pleased that you did pick up the Coast To Coast show. I have been a listner to that program for many years, since the early Art Bell days from Pahrump Nevada. Thanks, and keep up with your positive upgrades.
By: Al Morgan on February 20, 2012

Glad you picked up Bill Manders! While annoying sometimes, he is knowledgeable and very informative! He is also a GREAT community activist for us here in Northern Nevada. Been following him since Bakersfield. Good choice Evans group!
By: Carole Seckler on February 22, 2012

I began listening to your station when you brought Coast to Coast on. I have been a C2C listener for nearly 20 years. I was delighted by Dennis Miller. Briefly. I love Laura on my morning commute. I realize Bill Manders has a lot of fans, but I am not one of them. It is nice to hear Rusty Humphries again. Thanks for the thoughtful lineup
By: Joyce on February 24, 2012

PLEASE!!! Put Lars Larson back on in the afternoon. I am glad Bill Manders is back, but not at the expense of Lars in the afternoon!!!!!! Or swith Lars Larson & Tom Sullivan. I can only listen during the day and I miss Lars!
By: Jay on March 5, 2012

Mike Huckabee would be a great addition to your schedule. Head to head against Limbaugh would be outstanding. If not a delay would work. Think about it even if it is owned by Cummulus.
By: Jerry Higgins on April 3, 2012

I'm trying to reach out to Jerry Evans in regards to doing some radio advertising for Sweet Sipping Sunday's in Genoa, NV. We're looking to kick off the event May 6th. Please e-mail or call me at 417-339-9577.
By: Kalyn Pippin on April 10, 2012

On 9/25/12, as I was driving home listening to Bill Manders, he commented about all the prayers happening around this election. I want to share my constant prayer as well. I pray this for Barack Obama. Psalm 109:8 New International Version, "May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership."
By: Deb Moore on September 26, 2012

I would like to see Joe Paggs replace Tom Sullivan's slot with his weekly show. You've been carrying him on Weekend and he and his partner and sharp,entertaining and dead-on in their observations whatever the subject may be. I believe Sullivan is in 'retirement' mode. Thanks Jerry
By: jan gritzmacher on October 7, 2012

Can you please tell me what happened to Laura Ingraham on KKFT during the local 6-9 AM time slot? I enjoy Brian Kilmeade, but I'm just wondering why Laura's apparently been replaced on your station every weekday morning. (Sorry, but I've been burnt out with the past presidential campaign--working in the trenches for Team Nevada here in Carson City--and, am just now getting back into the swing of things with conservative talk radio.) Also, I don't see a listing on the 991FMTalk site for Bill Manders. Is there a reason whey Bill's not listed there (as of December 14, 2012)? Just wondering, that's all. Thanks!
By: Rick J. Radecki on December 14, 2012

I'm so happy Bill Manders is no longer on the air. He was very narsasistic and hardly ever had a good word. He was VERY negitive and NEVER showed any respect for our country's leadership. It does not matter if we like or dislike who is in office, they still demand a certain level of respect. Bill was sounding just the radicals he was complaining about. Thank you 99.1 for sending Bill back to California.
By: Skip Jackson on December 17, 2012

Where is Bill Mandrín?
By: kent on December 19, 2012

Sorry,got his name wrong,Where is Bill Manders?
By: kent on December 19, 2012

Well, the other day we were trying to listen online, but Bill's show wasn't there. Called the station and they said they'd get right on making any needed repair, but we never did get to listen that day. And now he's off the website, but I see no announcements anywhere, not RGJ or TV stations' websites. The most disturbing is that Bill's Facebook account has been deactivated. I hope he's okay and if he's gone from KKFT we will miss him.
By: LorI on December 20, 2012

Well if Bill Manders is gone? So am I. Wont listen to kkft. Bill makes strong points on the topics he covers. Some folks cant keep up? I guess. So long 99.1.
By: Roland Gomes on December 21, 2012

I guess congratulations are in order for Bill Manders going to Fresno to PowerTalk 96.7/1400. Hope all is well there for him at his old stomping grounds. Too bad there was no announcement that he was leaving. I myself will continue to listen to 99.1 both online and on the air. Thanks Jerry for having the locally owned talk station on FM available.
By: Mark on December 23, 2012

why did sean patrick leave your radio station?
By: manard on February 5, 2013

I miss Brian Kilmeade. He was interesting and had good topics. Can't say that for Laura.
By: Beverly Irwin on February 14, 2013

Please replace Joe Pags on Saturday morning. I have tried repeatedly to listen but always turn him off because of his arrogance and rude behavior towards callers. Re-runs of practically anyone (except Andy Dean) would be preferable to this childish dolt.
By: Mark on July 6, 2013

I listen from Arizona on internet radio. I love your station because I listen to Coast to Coast AM every night, and I love conservative talk. I am very pleased to find you have started airing The Wall Street Journal Report every weekday morning. I wake up to your station, and I missed hearing it on my local AM Station. Thank you for that, I hope you keep the Wall Street Journal Report on perminantly, It's a fine broadcast.
By: Betty Grace on September 17, 2013

get an hour of news (wall street journal?) at about 5am-6am every morning!!! bennett, et al do not satisfy in fact, do like kkoh and have a local news/bs kindof show for about 3 hr i do not/refuse to listen to bennett, et al
By: poopie on October 26, 2013

What happened to the Dennis Miller in the morning? I live in washoe valley nevada and listened to 99.1. are should i say I used to listen to 99.1.
By: ron flippen on March 19, 2014

I am so happy to hear less of Dennis Miller lately. He is a great comedian but he has given up as a political talk show host. Rick Roberts is a refreshing change.
By: John Meierer on March 31, 2014

I was getting a little tired of Dennis Miller however, Rick Roberts has me turning the station off for 3 hours. His voice is grating and boring.
By: Amma on April 3, 2014

Rick Roberts is a refreshing change from Dennis Miller. Rick is far more relevant, interesting, and engaging than Miller. Great choice!
By: Gail on April 28, 2014

I want MY Country back TOO!!!
By: Charles on May 14, 2014

Rick, Holder is trying to assemble a brown shirt police dept. and it did start with Clinton but you forget that Holder worked in the Clinton justice dept. and Obama restarted it with his civilian army. There is a connection. Take a look on youtube, Obamas Civilian Army, it's a joke. Apparently you didn't want to discuss it this morning so you cut me off and hung up. I just wanted the listeners to call their reps. and ask them not to fund it.

Hi Jerry....thanks for picking up Joe Paggs M-F. And so happy we middle-class conservatives in Northern Nevada have Rick Roberts representing us. He is awesome!
By: JanE Gritz on November 14, 2014

Listening to Kevin Wall fill in for Rick Roberts. Finally don't have to turn the radio off for 3 hours today! I count the minutes between 9 & noon so I can turn the radio back on and listen to KKFT again. Roberts is so so grating!
By: Amma on December 17, 2014

Don't know if you respond to comments or not but hope you do. My complaint is regarding the weakness of your signal. I work in Truckee in the winter & drive there from Reno most days of the the week. I'm a big Laura Ingraham fan & would love to be able to listen to her all the way up. However, you completely fade out before I even get to Boomtown on I-80 & never really come back the rest of the way. There are other local FM stations I can get all the way with no problem. I've even checked with auto sound companies & they say there is no "fix" on their end. Would also like to listen to Lars Larson on the way home instead of Dan Mason on KOH but "no can do". I don't know if anything can be done but would sure appreciate it if you would look into it.
By: Steve Jackson on December 19, 2014

KKFT could file for a booster that would make their signal listenable in that area. Will they do it? Probably not as that would increase their costs with just a very marginal gain in listenership. I suggest you look into streaming KKFT on your phone or laptop when driving through that area.
By: John on December 19, 2014

I have a old car with a Kenwood deck. I get good reception with it all the way past Truckee. Great now that I go to Roseville and West Sac more. KKFT I've been told, do changes based on listener ratings. Coast to Coast is number 1 in the time slot, and overall, KKFT has gone up in audience while KOH has gone down. One thing about KKFT, it is locally owned, not out of Vegas, LA, Pittsburgh or Atlanta. It's cool to think a local person has control, and is making choices based on local feedback. Love the energy that Kevin Wall is bringing to the 9a-noon time!!!
By: Esteban on February 25, 2015

please keep Roger Hedgecock on from 3 to 6PM and let Lars Larson go somewhere else, anywhere else
