Listener Comments and Reviews
I don't know if it's me or have Rush, Hannity and Beck
been repeats for about a month now. If so, what would
be the reason?

Why are you taking Joe Pags off your station during the wee? Will NOT be listening yo your station until Pags is back.
By: Pam C on July 18, 2015
Are you kidding me? Megan MCain in place of Joe Pags? I will be another non listener. Please contract with him. He is awesome and your decision sucks.
By: Nancy M on July 30, 2015
Megan does not cut it. Joe Pags was so good I stopped watching TV until after 9:00pm when Joe went off the air.
Now I don't turn the radio on until after 9:00pm because her style just annoys me, but I'm 73 and only put up with what I like. Life is too short to listen to someone that is not enjoyable as Joe was. Now I only have Saturday morning to get Joe, until you screw that up too.
I never eat Burrito's, so I was worried about missing the robot test. Whewwwww

I am very unhappy with whatever happened to your old line up---- I loved the Joe Paggs guy--- He was great fun and uplifting in the evening. I do not like Meagan McCain-- not personally-- she is not a good host and it is not even fun to listen to-- it seems like you have changed a bunch of stuff. Where is everyone and can't you put it back to how it was before--- I loved listening all day while working in my office, from 8:00AM until midnight-- loved it. Now it is annoying.
By: cyndi D. on October 2, 2015
I do not like Meagan McCain.. she seems like a nice person.. her voice is just not captivating, especially for 3 hours. Please let Air America know that I love Joe Pags! I actually was sad to lose Andy Dean. I thought he brought a young freshness to Conservative talk radio. I also love it when Mark Stein Subs for Rush! Mark Stein should be the new host of America Now.Thx.

II am i daily listener to 590 kqnt i listen to rush and hannity but i turn off your program when glenn beck comes on and i used to be a fan of his but i cant listen to him anymore all he talks about is how he hates trump its very irritating . I turn off your station every day and tune in to the savage nation on my tune in app micheal savage is way better than glenn beck.please bring the savage nation to spokane.Its pretty sad glenn is working as hard as he can to destroy the clear republican frontrunner.The savage nation is a great show and on at 3 to 6 find him on tune in app or please bring him here to replace glenn beck.thank you .
By: Eric whitworth on March 16, 2016
I agree with Eric, Glenn Beck is un-listenable anymore. The man suffers from Trump anxiety disorder. A bunch of stations have already dropped him or plan to drop him. KQNT should follow the pack and dump Glenn Beck too.
By: Bill on March 17, 2016
Glen beck off the air on this station or I put all advertising on my boycott blog local and national
By: woody on May 6, 2016
I always looked forward to the daily Joe Pags show on your station. I was shocked and saddened when you replaced him with the snippy, whiney, less-informed & immature Meghan McCain. Her continual Trump-bashing is also a turn-off. We get enough of THAT from Glenn Beck. Glenn Beck is OBSESSED w/ sabotaging Trump. He's gone off the rails and sounds like he needs help to deal w/ his bitter animosity. Please bring back Joe Pags weekly shows. And add another true conservative like Michael Savage, Gina Loudon or Lars Larson (who I can sort of get on AM840 tho' reception stinks). Sick of whiners like Beck and McCain. Sadly, I switch from KQNT after Hannity's show ends. I now only listen to Rush, Hannity, Joe Pags Weekend and Bill Cunningham on your station.
By: Sharon Gurley on September 3, 2016
I have not listened to America now ever since you brought on Megyn McCain. We have suffered long enough. BRING BACK JOE PAGS. JOE IS SO FAR SUPERIOR TO THE VALLEY GIRL MCCAIN. PLEASE
By: Carol hart on October 12, 2016
Please bring back Joe Pags in place of either Megan McCain or Glenn Beck. He is much more entertaining.
By: Anonymous on November 16, 2016
Morning news replaced with Glen Beck? I hope this is TEMPORARY! Otherwise my radio goes elsewhere until Rush arrives at 9.
By: James McKenzie on December 27, 2016
Thank you for replacing that McCain brat with Buck Sexton.
By: Anthony on February 17, 2017
So glad McCain is replaced by Buck! The programing is smooth now as the timeline changes. Glen Beck has even changed his tune and has quit bashing President Trump as much. No matter what some people think, he is the President of our Nation, and ALL the people, so until that changes he should be given the support the office deserves. Anything less is sour grapes.
By: Butch Stoddard on August 23, 2017
Frequently when I am listening to the Buck Sexton show at 6 pm it cuts of at 7 pm and is replaced by another show. This is so annoying. The programming that replaces Buck Sexton is rather inferior to say the least. Would really like to hear the last 2 hours of the Buck Sexton show and can understand why you are doing this. Thx, jan
By: Jan on March 14, 2019
Where's Buck? Are you trying to lose listeners again like you did with Maygun I know I dont how to spell.
That has little to do with where I spend my time and money. If you replace anyone maybe it should be the program director?
By: Tax payer and listener on January 21, 2020
The first week I didn't hear the Morning News Express, I thought maybe folks were on more vacation. The second week I started getting concerned. No more traffic reports, no more weather reports, no more local news. 590 has been in institution going back to the days of my grandparents. And suddenly it's all the syndicated big talk shows all day. That's very unhelpful during the morning and afternoon commute, when things like traffic reports are key to making sure I'm taking a good route. And also to find out there has been absolutely no news about this at all. The web site changes, it takes nearly an act of God to get a response on the facebook page, this isn't how to conduct business professionally. Sadly, I'll have to find a different station to listen to now. The unfortunate outcome is that even if 590 decides to change back, it will have lost listeners who may never even know it did change back (if it does). I can understand change, but this wasn't done very well, and doesn't improve my commute.
By: Daily Commute Listener on January 21, 2020
You have replaced the Morning News Express with Glenn Beck? Seriously? He's the most obnoxious host on radio and this doesn't give the listeners any useful information while they are preparing for their day. Big mistake. Are you trying to ruin your business or what?
By: Kaniksu Kidd on January 21, 2020
Where is my morning news, traffic, business report, etc.????? This is what got me safely and sanely to work every day on my 1 hour commute! PLUS I really enjoyed listening to the Glenn Beck show ON THE WAY HOME every afternoon. (Buck Sexton is ok, but....) Did someone get fired there? Signed, saddened commuter.
By: loyal morning commute listener on January 21, 2020
WOW! BUCKS GONE AND MORNING EXPRESS? And added more looney Glenn Beck! WTF is goin on with the program manager. Been a faithful listener for years several hours a day but not anymore. You'll lose 25% of your audience within a month because of these asinine changes. SAD
By: Wake up call on January 22, 2020
I have listened to your station for thirty years and you have made some bad changes before but you are really blowing it again. Put Glenn Beck back at 3 where he belongs and put Buck back where he was. You are going to loose a lot of listeners and you can count me among them if you Don't fix your mistakes.
By: Vanessa Miller on January 22, 2020
Disappointed with the new lineup, you just lost another listener.
By: Karen on January 24, 2020
Disatppointed with the new lineup, you just lost another listener KQNT Spokane used to have a decent daily lineup, what happened ?
By: Karen on January 24, 2020
This WAS the best morning commute station. I will not listen to Glen Beck first thing in the morning, but often listened to him on my way home from work.
By: Loyal Listener on January 24, 2020
We're all wondering what happened to the morning news program that just suddenly disappeared. The morning news was a vital way to start out day, with traffic, weather and current news. The fact that it's just gone with no notice is curious to me. Then Glenn Beck is on twice, from 6-9am and 6-9pm. At least put on a different program in the evening instead of a repeat. A suggestion would be to bring back Joe Pags. But really, I think it would be more beneficial to bring back the Morning News Express.
P.S. Something is off when the news plays at the top of the hour. Ads play over the top of them. It's very annoying to hear both things at once.
By: Concerned Loyal Listener on January 24, 2020
What a disapointment! I was hoping the old program would return. That was such a good format and I started each morning with a smile.
With a sad heart, I am off to a different station now. Yo
By: Barbara on January 27, 2020
I too have been wondering what had happened to the lineup. We were traveling and thought we had missed some announcement. Have not been able to get a phone answered or email returned. Poor way to do business. When you are the station with RUSH on it seems like you would protect that. This feels like a black eye on Spokane.
By: Cathy on January 29, 2020
Boy did you shoot your self in the foot. I hear the program manager talking about buy new car at some dealer. You have over paid him, he should have been fired not promoted. Very bad management. Rush and Hannity is all I will listen to, and for the advertiser I will not be visiting them anytime soon. Sorry to see the changes.
By: TIM on January 30, 2020
As a faithful listener I am very disappointed at your replacement of the Morning News Express with Glen Beck. Hes a fruitcake and has no listening audience. I cant believe your advertisers will be happy with their ratings with this change, not a smart move. I speak for all of the listening audience of the Morning News Express when I say we miss Dave and Teresa more than you know.
By: Valerie on January 30, 2020
You should have kept the morning news Express and kept the lineup times where they were. I just read the article in the spokesman about the changes and layoffs and I think it's bad business. I like Glenn Beck, he's one of my favorite hosts but moving his time slot has really screwed up my listening schedule. I listen to Bucks podcasts so him moving to 3 doesn't matter except that's when I listened to Glenn. Not a real fan of Hannity. You should have kept the local show or at least informed your listeners. After all without listeners you have no station.
By: Heather on January 31, 2020
Never thought KXLY morning news was any good. Still not but that’s where I listen since you screwed up your lineup and replaced morning news express with Glenn Beck. Do you know what station Teresa and Dave went so I can listen there?
By: Former listener on February 4, 2020
Young listener (29) for the past 10 or so years. I for one like the change. Glenn Beck gets a lot of hate here but he is why I listen. Happy to hear more of him in the morning. The 6pm slot... maybe find someone else to not repeat. But I like the change I don’t always commute after 6pm.
By: Anonymous on February 8, 2020
Has the lineup changed again? The NBC today show, REALLY? Definitely not an improvement.
By: Heather on February 24, 2020
I'm happy with the programming change. However, Beck can be doom and gloom at times.
By: John Corege on April 18, 2020
I too am disappointed with recent changes, Buck is just about the worst choice for drive time. Just rambles on and on. Like to see Beck back in the 3-6 slot at least there is some humor there.
By: James Thrasher on July 30, 2020
Enjoying the new Clay and Buck show... hoping to hear Joe Pags at 3:00 when he is live.
By: Terese on June 23, 2021
Are you having problems with your signal or what is going on with 590 am radio ...it cuts in and, slow sounding, and sometimes no signal at all. Here in Post Falls. Would appreciate a response. Thank you
By: Erin on October 13, 2021
What happened to your signal I can't get your station in any of my three cars now in Sandpoint and Coeur d'Alene when I go down there
