Listener Comments and Reviews

Again this morning WRVA put Andy on the air attempting again to vilify the real conservatives and those Americans who voted for Trump and support him fulyl today. We are again forced to listen to worthless dribble from a IHEART stooge. What a waste of air time putting biased trash on and on. You have lost so many conservatkve listeners that you must be hurting for advertisers. I would not buy fron any sponsor on you radio station. Who could believe any of the bold face liers that comment and support on these advertisers. What an obtuse JOKE. The best thing you could do for Andy is self-indulgent his worthless backside to CNN. It has gotten to the point that the only time I listen to WRVA is where Rush is on. Otherwise I listen to 820 AM. GOODBYE to junk radio.

I agree wholehardedly with the above comments by Mr. Morris. I am so very tired of your left wing, slanted liberal news that seeks to find even the smallest possible infraction from the Trump administration, while completely disregarding all the good things that are being done. This is after having overlooked anything even grossly negative from the past Obama kingship. Every time the news comes on I try and give the opportunity to get through it once, then will mute throughout the day. I listen to Rush and some of Jeff Katz so muting of the news is quite frequent. Deanna Malone practically salivates with each tidbit of trash that she reads. There are other stations that host Rush and I will be tuning to them.

I listen to Glenn, Rush, Hannity each day. When the news comes on with Deanna Malone I have to change to channel 790. The stammering, stuttering of Deanna trying to read the news causes me anxiety. She should be a pro by now, but she can’t do it.

Are you guys listening to the same radio station? I'm a libertarian and appreciate many of the things Pres Trump has done especially his Supreme court picks. I can't accept however is boorish behavior and his inability to admit when he's wrong. His mega-egotism makes me nauseous. He's definitely better than any Democrat, however, if you can't admit that he has serious issues and he operates by the seat of his pants, you have blinders on.

I used to love 1140 WRVA but over the past two years I've watched the station move further and further to the Left. Instead of Fox News feeds we get ABC. Bloomberg finance news? BLOOMBERG? Jeff Katz is great. I love Rush! When Glenn comes on I switch to 820. Although John Reid is good, every time the governor or one of our worthless Progressive senators come on, I hit 820. And, unfortunately, John isn't even getting the news right. Things we see on Fox News in the morning are ignored or misrepresented on 1140. It's gotten to where I have no where to go to get unbiased news reporting. Such a loss to the area.

Your station has really lost its way.
By: Dwayne W. on October 23, 2018

Whoever the afternoon guy is cannot talk without using curse words which we refuse to listen to. Anyone who uses SOB and others do not have enough vocabulary to be on the air!!!! Your station needs to get real speakers who know how to talk without using any profanity. Do you have any? We think people like Steve Harvey started the whole thing, and it is getting worse each year.

I am so appalled at this Gov. Northtrom, anyone who would support murder of a human baby after birth is not moral, ethical or following the creed of a dr. It is shocking that he is a doctor of pediatrics and is pushing this agenda of murder. He can not be believed on any issue, black, white, clans, military support, he is a liar in every sense of the word. He will never be a truthful leader for our great state.

Reading the above comments by listeners (and struggling through the typos and stream of consciousness drivel) is amusing. The gist of what I believe they are trying to say is: (1) WRVA is not conservative enough in its reporting of the local news (and presumably, weather and traffic); and (2) Fox News is a legitimate source of information that should be emulated by the newsroom of WRVA. Kids, what you're actually hearing is the reporting of news - not opinion-based "alternative facts" you're used to hearing on Fox. I know, I know -- it may take some time to wrap your minds around this, so please process it slowly.

Your station really has moved to the left since Entercom bought it. I like to listen to Rush, Hannity, Mark Lavin, and occasionally Coast-To-Coast, but the local news department leaves much to be desired. On top of that, there are way too many repeat commercials like Katz complaining about his kid eating cheese, and all the commercials for snake oil medication products. I am tired of hearing how brilliant Katz thinks his financial planner is. Reflecting back to what this station was in years past, things really have gone down hill.
By: Joseph Dickerson on December 17, 2019

Love the content, but way too many commercials / ads / ad input. I have a 40 min commute and hear 10 min of news, including weather, traffic, etc. news radio should be just that. I know where Jeff eats every day, don’t need to hear it 4 times an hour. Ads pay, I get it, but damn. Charge more. Please. Please

WRVA has totally lost its way. When Howard guttman comes on Saturday my radio goes off.
By: John S. on April 24, 2021

Please carry the Dan Bongino show when it starts on May 24.
By: Long Time on May 2, 2021

Please keep Andre Viette on Saturday mornings. Such a nice diversion with good advice for the many of us who love gardening.

why must you put on commercials in Spanish? I know, you are a bunch of lefties. I'm sure Spanish speaking people are listening to their own stations. Stop trying to appease.... English Please!!

I occasionally listen to WRVA when scanning stations in the car. Today's Jeff Katz show was disgraceful and consisted of Mr. Katz mocking President Biden for speaking in a monotone and stumbling over his words from time to time. Perhaps Mr. Katz is unaware that the president has dealt with stuttering his entire life and manages it, like many stutterers, by speaking in a monotone, preparing for problem words and occasionally tripping over them, avoiding inflection and emphasis which can trigger stuttering, and other techniques. I know that I shouldn't let it get to me considering that Katz is a liar, a Trump apologist, and a genuine a**hole.
By: John on June 24, 2021

As far as Jeff Katz goes, isn't it funny, if it is pointed out that before Joe Biden reached a point of senility he has reached, where he cannot effectively string words together we NEVER heard of this "stuttering" issue. NEVER! When Katz points out that Joe speaks in monotone because he IS struggling to REMEMBER what he was told to say, not because he was trying not to stutter the dem party zombies don't like it. Show us where there was ANY issue made public about any stuttering in his previous campaigns. He never stuttered nor spoke in a monotone format regardless of how much he lied. I hope Jeff Katz keeps laying into Biden no less than the leftists lied and laid into President Trump. Remember Juneteenth is the celebration of the final defeat of the Democrat slave holders! Lets continue to tear down all the statues to the defenders of democrat slave holders!

I have been a long time listener of WRVA. I believe you are making a big mistake taking Andre Viette's show off of WRVA. I know many Richmond area gardeners listen to him and depend on his advice. Many Master Gardeners and Garden Club members I know agree that if this happens they will stop listening to WRVA. Please reconsider allowing this very helpful show to c ontinue to help make our community a more beautiful place to live and work.
By: Johnnie on June 29, 2021

I grew up listening to WRVA and the station was on all day before TV and even after TV when the radio was on it was always tuned to WRVA at home and in the car. In recent years all that has changed. There have been few programs that offer any listening pleasure. Viette’s is the only one we regularly listen to and were always disappointed that you did not carry the third hour. Thankfully we can pick him up live online. Please bring back programs that offer information without opinions influencing every comment.
