Listener Comments and Reviews

I was disappointed in your 6:30 Sunday magazine show. (I had listened before and it was interesting.) The reporter started out with a good clear, pleasant voice giving an intro, then a member of the Portland school board, I think. That person talked slowly, with a lot of "uh"s and "yuh know"s, but I was sure it would be short, and then the reporter would summarize and move along with the story. Well, the slow, tedious voice went on and on and it was too much--I turned if off. It doesn't seem that a tape of a slow-talking guy makes an interesting story.

Really, KEX. You bring in a New York attitude with your morning program, Michael Costner (I'm sorry If I mis-spelled his name), and expect listeners to just lay back? I thought the FCC had rules about using offensive language "on-air"? On ANY given morning program, pick one, you'll hear him using a variety of cuss words. YOU may not care . . . But I'm POSITIVE your advertisers who pay your salaries, would be appalled to have customers come into their business and start shouting and using cuss words. Then say - you advertise on KEX radio, so you must condone this ? Given the number of words in the English language . . . A radio personality should have a better vocabulary.

Screen your news items for accuracy. As an analyst, your news on Facebook data was grossly misleading: to assist your education an article in depth.: See: There is no excuse for sloppy reporting, or intentionally biased news. Evidently your newspeople lack objectivity. PLease clean up your mess.
