Listener Comments and Reviews

I listen to 970 am Louisville all day...starting with Bill Bennett ... Miss terribly the third hour... I go on my phone to hear it but then if up early the next day it is a rerun. Love Michael Medved too...miss him...sending prayers Love Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager Have listened to joe Elliott and Hugh Hewitt however their times are not conducive to my listening times Am going to write this on my car window: Wise up...Get Smart ...listen to 970 am -all day!!

I have loved listening to all of your weekly programming during the past 3yrs when we moved to the area. I am extremely disappointed in what has been going on during the late hours for the past month or so. Not wild about 9-12 with Joe...former congressman... whatever, but nothing is as bad as the repetition from midnight to 3AM The same show repeated at least 3 times a week. No original programming? I realize the other show were repeats, but at least from earlier in the day. Dennis Prager repeats are wonderful cause he is so intelligent...don't mink that, but whoever that woman is at midnight......I turn it off.

I used to listen to Michael Medved every afternoon from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. He was the smartest, most interesting person on talk radio. Because he was not on the “Trump Train”, they replaced him with a Trump hack who has a British accent. What a huge disappointment! I no longer listen to anyone on Salem Radio network. If you disagree with Trump there is no place for you on conservative radio. I’m still confident the truth will triumph over fear and anger.

I really miss listening to The Words Of Life Radio Program at 8 AM on Sunday mornings. Does it air at a new time?

April 24 2020 This is the only station I listen to, and it, along with its sister station WFIA, have been off the air for the past 24 hours. What is going on?!?!

Why are you not broadcasting since at least this morning - 4/24/2020?

Why is your station not broadcasting? I listen everyday and it is awful trying to find a comparable station.

You have had a psa about your FCC license renewal. If you are part of the E.B.S., how are you going to qualify for your license renewal if you are off air so often? We are long time listeners and value your having Hewitt, Prager, Gorka,Elder,and Gallagher on. We miss B.Bennet but he did his time, and we miss the Rest of the News on Sunday morning. Seb Gorka is a great replacement for M. Medved! Hope that you are able to diagnose and repair you transmission problems soon.

Please put Ben Shapiro back on. All the rest of the line up is perfect. Love the station but need Ben back. Thanks

I listen to your to AM 970 everyday. Recently it loses reception sometime after 12:00p.m. I can no longer listen to the Dennis Preger show. Are you working on this problem?
By: Denise Robuck on June 4, 2020

I notice on 970 AM that you have a problem with noticeable 60 cycle hum. It seems most noticeable where you have downlinks. It was a huge problem during the recent NASCAR event this week (June 18, 2020). Something you may want to examine.

I would like to know the schedule for Leland Conway....I loved him when he was on WHAS and have really missed him. Have not listened to WHAS since they let him go. I understand he is with Salem now. Would love to know his schedule. I listen to all the programming on 970 but wish Leland had a real program time with during Gorka's time slot!

What’s with having Charlie Cris on when Dennis Prager should be on?
By: William Pendleton on December 10, 2020

Presently the channels are garbled. I listen daily for years. The garbling began around nan 10, 2021. Yesterday while in driving in Lou, the automobile radio garbled! Are you on internet now? Near my address, Jeffersonville; there are several new towers. It is my belief they are creating residence hs a. As well. Television programming is effected as well. Please check into this. I am deeply concerned as the radio is my connection to life. Thank you

The 1 to 2 minute "dead air" periods, during afternoon programing, are VERY annoying. (esp.during the Dennis Preger show.) Why is this being done? VH
By: vance on September 7, 2021

In my view two hours or even one hour of the Charlie Kirk show is better than none at all. And now having his slot from 3AM to 6AM is basically none at all. Most people are sleeping at this hour and will not have access to Charlie's conservative perspective. I believe that Mr. Kirk though youthful as he is has more wisdom and insight than all the other conservative talk shows put together. And I do like all the other ones. C. Kirk almost always has been proven right. And his unique view of the world and what is happening is priceless. I hope your station can find a better time slot for him that will accommodate his massive audience.
