Listener Comments and Reviews

You Recently stoped airing the Jerry Doyl show at your station, which was very disappointing. It was one of the few shows that I injoyed. Jerry was a talk show host that made a lot of sence. If you decide to bring back his show I'll start listening again. Thanks! Alex 775-813-4495

As of today (june 7th)I took your station off my AM dial. Tuned in to listen to the Belmont Stakes race with a local celebrity ),(Calif Chrome) today and right at the bell, maybe 3 minutes before the race would be over, your station interrupted local programing to bring us two guys talking about Oakload A's pregame. Shame on you and your programing manager.

Is Panama still on 1270
By: mark clutter on September 20, 2014

what happened to AM 1270 in Reno? Did it go off the air? Tried listening to the Giants games on FM 96.1, but none of my transistor radios picks it up, only the ones that plug in, and the reception isn't that great sometimes. Really miss being able to listen to the games while I'm outside. Hope AM 1270 gets fixed so we can enjoy listening to it again.

My old radio in my Reno home no longer receives Giants and A's games. Do I need a radio with newer technology? Can someone suggest a radio brand and which model? Thank you.
