Listener Comments and Reviews

I no longer listen to WHAM after 8:00 PM , since my favorite show-The Savage Nation- has been removed.
By: Ann Damico on January 9, 2012

I miss The Savage Nation on WHAM. Please bring it back.

Dear Whomever; I used to listen to WHAM much more, can't take more than a few minuts of the rude and crude Lonsberry. Although I'm sure he is inexpensive he drove my family back to music radio, not all bad but I do miss intelligent local radio.

Hello, I also miss the Savage Nation. Although I did not always agree with him, I found his show to be very entertaining. Also, please feel free to drop Dave Ross commentaries. He is clearly a liberal. I find him making fun of Catholics over them objecting to mandated birth control in Obamacare to be extremely offensive... and I am not even Catholic. Regards, Scott

Why exactly was The Savage Nation removed?
By: Diane on March 8, 2012

2014, by the Chinese Calendar, must be the year of the disappointment. I was looking forward to listening to Michael Savage after Rush, but skim milk Hannity is still in that slot. Oh well......... Lonesberry is still on in the morning........ so life is good.

We like & listen to Michael Savage daily. What is the story on skim milk? I was driving & did not hear the reason to avoid it. WQXR New London,CT

In the 80's I use to listen to Bruce William financial show. What is he doing these days? JZ

Please give the Savage Nation an explanation as to why you took Michael Savage off the air.
By: Mary on January 8, 2019

Please put the Savage Nation back on the air instead of the same old thing that is now on at 9;00 PM. No one is as multi-faceted as he is. Just brilliant!

I am at the point where I cannot listen to your station anymore because of the number of times you repeat your call letters. "WHAM, News Radio WHAM" over and over and over. It`s very annoying. I counted the number of times it was repeated from 7 to 8 am yesterday and it was 96 times in the hour. Today it was 120 times in one hour! Is this really necessary? Obviously I know what station I`m listening to and I don`t need to hear it repeated so much. By contrast, I listened to WBEN in Buffalo and they repeat their call letters 32 times per hour. Come on! Enough is enough!

Time to replace Bob Lonsberry or cut his air time. He is rude and arrogant to callers. Purports to be a "talk show but hangs up on most callers. Recently stated on air that, after he was fired several years ago, WHAM lost a million dollars in advertising revenue and HAD to rehire him....ludicrous. Let's fill the four hours of morning airtime with several varied and more interesting programs. Survey of family and coworkers confirms his program is stale and predictable....all about him.

Unfortunately, you will no longer allow one to listen to your station on line without downloading your app. I will not download your app and will find the show else where on the web.

I find listening to WHAM radio superior to anything TV has to offer. I love Lonsberry, Rush and even Bob Matthews. I miss Dr. Savage. Please put him back on the air. His intellectual viewpoints round out your station. I need Savage, don't make me watch Hallmark all night.
By: Sue Ellen on January 15, 2019

what happen to the savage nation. the best educational and entertaining radio out there.
By: josh weisen on February 1, 2019

I miss Michael Savage at 9:00 p.m. on WHAM radio. I will find it some where else on the dial.

Why did you dump the Savage Nation?
By: William Mooney on February 25, 2019

Bring the Savage Nation back. I'm not liking Shannon Joy.
By: Sandy S on July 7, 2019

Turned on the radio at 9:00pm & expected to hear Michael Savage. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! I listened to some squeaky voiced woman & turned radio OFF!
By: Georgia Winegard on July 25, 2019

I sent an e-mail to Bob Lonsberry at about the upcoming vote on the proposed community center in the former Irondequoit mall and the reasons to vote against it. A week has passed and no response from him. Very unprofessional.
