Listener Comments and Reviews
I would like to recommend Alex Jones for your station line up. Liberty is popular and a large number of Libertarians in our area. If you would like to increase your listener base, I would suggest the Alex Jones Show.

Inquiry about "Frankly Speaking" Tuning in every day this week and have not heard this fine program.
By: Edward Ryan on January 29, 2015
Please dont even think about removing "Frankling Speaking" for Alex Jones, libertarians or any other show. Very often Frank presents news that are not heard on major networks. It is a good and needed outlet for people in our local area to express their opinions.

Love "Frankly Speaking" . I live in rural PA and this is my only link to local new and Elmira area.

I am a fan of Frank Acomb, but everytime he called Kirsten Gillibrand - KRISten it made me cringe. Don't lose your credibility. Read her name correctly.

We listen to Frank daily (AM) and especially enjoy the call-ins. Getting tired of muting your leftest CBS "news" though, it is way too biased for my taste. Not much local info anymore, too many folks are leaving and the rest do not care :-( Still looking for a source of world news WITHOUT a slant.

Why not try playing some Christian metal bands? There are alot of good ones. Not preachy or anything. Just a thought.

Thank you so very much for picking up the Rush Limbaugh show and Sean Hannity show! It's great to be hearing them again!
By: Brenda Woughter on September 5, 2020
Really like the Glen Beck Show. Enjoy Rush Limbaugh but REALLY miss Dennis Prager! I hope you can find a time daily to play his show!
By: Stephanie Moore on September 7, 2020
Thank you so much for picking up, Beck, Limbaugh, and Hannity! Especially like Beck and I would love to hear Rush again, but something happens to your signal at noon. I can hear Beck, but then about 12:05 the signal is lost to nothing but static. I have to move the radio around just to hear Beck clearly, but come noon...nothing but static and I cannot move the radio anywhere to pick up Rush. Any tips?
By: Kathi Rog on September 9, 2020
Just happened to find your station now is carrying Rush. Missed badly when WWLZ changed owners. Signal much clearer here in Athens than a station in Binghamton.

It is November 11th a little bit afternoon and all of a sudden 12:30 a.m. just started transmitting music off gem 98.7. What's the deal guys?
By: Ray on November 15, 2020
It is still the 15th of November and I just came back to this page and notice that my earlier comment has disappeared. So I'm going to make that comment again. At noon today 1230 on the am dial switch to music it has been playing music ever since. What's the deal guys? Was conservative talk listeners sold out again??
By: Ray on November 15, 2020
Love Larry Sharpe and the Sharpe Way program!

How can you allow Frank to LIE like he does every day? I understand people have different points of view, and that's the American way, but to flat out LIE as he does is just disgusting. We saw what these lies (and Frank was right there compounding them) about the election brought us, but despite the insurrection, he continues to lie, lie and lie again...and he's good at it, just like Hannity et al...mix in a little truth, then blow the truth up to fit his scenario. This is just bad for America.
For example, today he correctly mentioned that a Biden aid said: "there was no plan, we had to start from scratch on the pandemic"-which was in itself a lie, and Frank was right to call him out. However, he went on to say the Biden just stole Trump's plan and is doing nothing more. Let's be honest, Trump didn't have much of a plan, the rollout of the vaccine has been a mess (which could be expected given the immensity of the undertaking) but Trump was doing NOTHING to straighten it out. Biden has jumped on it, raised the number of shots he wants to get out, and has put money where his mouth is to get it right. To say this is all Trump's doing and Biden is just riding Trump's coattails is absolute bullspit.
Then he followed up by saying Trump was solely responsible for the Vaccine coming out so quickly and it had never been done before--ignoring the FACT that it was a new technology that made this possible. Trump just guaranteed the pharmaceutical companies they'd be paid, they were already working on the vaccine before operation "Warp Speed".
I'm a long time conservative, but this new way of lying and lying and lying has darn near made me a Democrat-NOT they way I want to be.
I would appreciate Frank sticking with FACTS--there are plenty enough of them out there to slam Democrats with, the lies are not helpful

I would like to post a comment on facebook about this radio station, WENY 1230 am. I dont think alot of people would watch WENY news on tv if they realized that WENY broadcasts all these trashy conservative hosts, such as frank acomb, hannity, beck and limbaugh. The public needs to be aware of this.
By: karenpaul on February 12, 2021
Karenpaul WENY radio and WENY tv have two different owners and are unrelated besides having the same callsign.
By: Anonymous on February 15, 2021
I love your station listen to it all the time from Frank Acomb to Glenn Beck to former Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. I really liked Rush , and I hope you carry Dan Bongino in Rush’s Slot.
Keep up the good work ( fix your commercials stepping on each other and dead air space 🤔).
A loyal listener ( I lose signal at sunset).
By: RidgeburyPops on March 18, 2021
What happened to the talk radio lineup on 1230?? I turned on 1230 this morning expecting to hear Glenn Beck - and it was just music. It played music all day long. I really hope that you haven't abandoned talk radio. There are many people who listened to "The Patriot" - I had it on all day long - and if you have changed 1230 into just another duplicate music station, that is really unfortunate. I guess we'll listen to our favorite talk radio shows online -
By: Barb on June 3, 2021
What happened to your programming? Just awful music since yesterday! :(
By: Anonymous on June 3, 2021
Want to know what happened to talk radio. Hopefully station didn't change to that music
By: Michael N. on June 4, 2021
I am so disappointed to no longer hear the Glenn Beck program on your station. Is this a temporary change or have you fallen prey to partisan pressure?
By: Patty H. on June 6, 2021
Sure do miss the informative programing. From Rev. Horace Stoddard, Frank Acomb, Home repair, health, political and economic issues. There are plenty of stations doing music while talk radio is getting very sparse. It is a big and important niche to fill. Sincerely hope the format changes back. Thank you!
By: Don on June 6, 2021
Really missing Frank Acomb and rest of the daily lineup. Will they be back on soon? Thank you for your time.
By: Julie D. on June 7, 2021
I’ve been listening to AM 1230 for a couple years now and have thoroughly enjoyed all the shows. I’m not sure if you know but your slot at 1230 am no longer carries your station. I can pick you up on 1450 AM when I get to the Elmira area. I was able to get 1230 all the way to Troy Pa before this change. I sure hope you are back on 1230 soon
By: J Blade on June 7, 2021
I was once a loyal daily listener. Now that you have removed the morning talk lineup, I'm no longer tuning in. Frank Acomb was a daily listen on the way to work and the radio on my desk WAS set on 1230 and never changed. Now it's not. I don't know who's listening now, but not me.
By: Craig S on June 8, 2021
I hope conservative talk radio returns quickly to your station. I enjoyed the info and supporting the local advertisers that made it happen.
By: Reality Intrudes on June 9, 2021
Disapointed not to hear the talk radio lineup on WENY. What gives? At least have the courtesy to inform the public of a permanent format change. Very poor public relations. KEEP THE OLD FORMAT!
By: Gary A. on June 13, 2021
Can’t figure out how WENY could go from their talk line up to this music lineup which is not constant their past ideology.
By: Steve A on June 15, 2021
I dont know what happened to talk radio but I am not going to listen to crappy country music. I have a feeling that Socialist thugs have silenced yet another Conservative news outlet. Silencing free speech is right out of the Hitler Stalin playbook and they were both Socialists. But I would not expect today's Socialist to know that because in order to be a modern Democratic Socialist would require a total lack of historical literacy. Socialism always fails economically but always succeeds in depriving people of freedom. So, all you Socialists, Democratic Socialists, Communists, Progressives, Liberals or whatever you choose to call yourselves, BEWARE! Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. When the day comes and your Socialist utopia becomes reality and it costs a $50 dollars for a Big Mack and you are told how to live and what to eat and what to drive, there will be people like me to say to you, "I told you so." Maybe at that point you will realize that you were useful idiots that squandered your own liberty and mine. Sleep well Comrade!
By: Chris R on June 29, 2021
Been listening to 1230 or 1450 for years and am so disappointed in your new programming. We don't need another oldies or country station. Bring back talk radio. It was the only good thing in this area.
By: Jo on July 1, 2021
I agree with Chris R. I'm getting tired of this small group Marxists making decisions that affect me. Did they think people wouldn't notice if they selected to replace conservative talk radio with conservative country music. Bring back conservative talk radio to the Elmira area.
