Listener Comments and Reviews

Traveling through Columbus. Really want to get traffic updates on the radio as I go through. Why doesn't this station advertise if/when they broadcast traffic???? I am used to KQV, Pittsburgh, does/did traffic every 10 minutes. But their website does not give schedule. C'mon stations--people driving would appreciate going to a station website to find this kind of info. Instead of, dangerously, scanning while driving

During CNN news conference of police chief and others about OSU shooting, CNN on split screen showing scene of shooting with one young man in handcuffs and accompanying police. Who was that person?? Nobody in media asked that obvious question; can WTVN?

When did my favorite news station, (610) change from conservative Fox News to the liberal ABC News... I will not be leaving my radio on all day like I usually do. I can't take the bashing of conservatives that ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and the rest of the mainstream media do. As soon as BECK, LIMBOUGH, and LEVIN, aren't on , my radio is going off. My husband and I have always supported the sponsors, too. This change to ABC NEWS, will affect that in the future.

I've been meaning to say this for awhile, ABC news sucks. 610 WTF! Not even an explanation. These f#!ktards at ABC hate anyone who not vote for a Democrat. I honestly question if I will continue listening. I use to leave my radio on all day just to give them the ratings. Not any more!
By: ABCnews really on August 23, 2017

I agree with Angela Williams. The news now is more of an editorial on Trump, and it is sickening. And I as will have to question whether I will be listening as often. The national shows are no problem, but morning drive and weekends are a major problem management refuses to recognize as a problem. Weekend info-mercial programming is humorous, and then, to make it worse, putting POS's like West Side Jeff, which is wrong, because now he is Northwest side Elitist Jeff. Listening to him and his leftist opinions, ( like what is being broadcast right now a little after 3pm 10-1-17) is too much to put up with. Get over it Jeffy,, Carley didn't make it thru the primary. Had enough of this irritating jackass, time to switch to WMNI.

Who ever filled in today for Corby must be super liberal he should just say he is a Democrat liberal He should keep it to himself. I turned him off and went to 103.5 FM
By: David Clark on October 9, 2017

I would like to add my name to the others who are deeply disappointed with the change to ABC news instead of FOX news. With all the conservative programming you run, why would you think that the same audience would want to hear liberal news coverage?

Brian Dytko, I am a regular, long time listener to this station. I especially loved John Corby's show and miss him terribly. I am not a fan of Sterling. I find his presentation caustic and always turned the station off when he substituted for John. I trust you will use your do diligence in selecting the next host to replace John and not just put Sterling in because of his longevity in subbing for John. If that is the case, I will have to find another station for that time slot. Thank you for listening, Jennifer Truby
By: Jennifer Truby on January 29, 2018

To whom it may concern: I was sorry to hear about the passing of John Corby. I haven’t heard or read who will be replacing him. I do hope that Joe Bradly gets a shot. I always enjoyed Joe when he would fill in for John. I hope it is NOT sterling. He is not my idea of a radio host. When he is on My radio gets tuned somewhere else. WTVN has lots of talented hosts, sterling is not among them in my estimation. If he is, l’ll be listening somewhere else and I’ve been a WTVN guy for probably more than 50 years!

I always hated when Sterling filled in for Corby. Always turned the station. Now that he is on every day, I no longer listen during the afternoon. His whiny monotone voice and trying to sound "deep" would be better suited for NPR.
By: Bob on February 9, 2018

Yeah. Hated it when this station went from Fox to ABC, right before the primary election, right? Also miss John and Joe something fierce. Sterling is such a liberal, pretending to be objective. His logic/thinking process is quilt work, and painful and embarrassing to listen. Hope they fix it soon. I turn it off everyday when he comes on.
By: Dave on February 23, 2018

I am saddened by not having John Corby any longer and do miss him, but I am truly enjoying Sterling and Josh, I do hope that they keep them in this time slot, it makes the commute home so more enjoyable. Sterling, keep up the good work.
By: Jean on March 8, 2018

Turn Sterling off...he argues w callers is so liberal cant stand to listen. u all better find a better replacement u lost a pm listener ijn me. every time i try to tune in i get disgusted and switch to tunes.
By: blake on March 14, 2018

Please find a replacement for Sterling! He is not pleasant to listen to. His voice is too whiny and he just doesn't have what it takes to put on an interesting show. To be honest, I have never liked him and would immediately turn him off. I thought I would give him another chance, but same results. It will be difficult to find someone the caliber of Corby, but please try to do so. There has to be talent out there. Adios until you do find someone other than Sterling.

Is it sterling or schterling either way what a bone head,get this knuckle head off the radio.That voice,that whine oh that whine plllleeeeaaaassseeee give him a janitors job....
By: pm guy on March 15, 2018

I’m glad to see here that I’m not the only person to think Sterling is a poor excuse for a radio host. I hated when he filled in for Corby & Joe Bradly. During those “fill in stints” if Sterling was on I was else where, even preferring silence over his voice. Nobody can replace John C, of course because he was one of a kind. The banter between he and Joe was always entertaining, even bridging generations. On that note, I’ve been a Bradly fan for decades. Where is he? Missing him too! So if Sterling is here to stay, then I’m gone. It’s sad as I’ve been listening for over 40 years. Rick
By: Rick on March 16, 2018

I liked Sterling years ago when he was on in the evening. It is a shame that he was good enough to fill-in for Corby, but not good enough for the permanent position. Yes Sterling was blunt and controversial and I liked that about him. Please keep him on your radio station if he will work for you. No one is perfect and Sterling spoke his mind and tried to make sense of things, as he said. Sterling is a human and refreshing!
By: becky on April 16, 2018

Not a fan of the new afternoon guy - found him completely boring. Liked Sterling replacing Corby - why couldn't he have been permanent? Also, there is so much "repeat" information on the morning show with Joel Riley - I swear I hear the same spots with info several days in a row. Also, I miss the live banter as it seems most of the interviews, etc are pre-recorded. Sorry to say 610 is not the station it used to be. I think I will start "scanning" on my morning / afternoon drives....
By: Bill on April 17, 2018

Sterling was HYSTERICAL! I really liked him after John Corby passed away. I know it was just temporary, but he did a great job being thrown into the position and he was very interesting to listen to and he did a great job trying to stay neutral on controversial issues. He was so funny talking about every day issues and he wasn’t even trying to be. I tried to give the new guy a chance, but he is so boring and I can’t listen anymore. If Sterling comes back, then I will start listening again.
By: Dave D on April 19, 2018

please replace woody & co. I can no longer stand 610 radio, plus you shortened the length of afternoon show. Find a great fit for the Corbs & bring back his trademarks...cow bell, dueling banjos, garage sale, bass brothers....Woody is So Boring as a replacement. Thanks for listening.
By: caroline on May 4, 2018

There's an old saying if it ain't broke don't fix it it's starting to sound like 610 starting to reinvent the wheel I'll give it a few more weeks but if things keep changing you've lost another listener there's plenty of stations to go around we've already got one NPR in town don't need another
By: Jerry H on June 4, 2018

I miss Corbi but thought Sterling was genuine. Please bring him back!!! Woody is self absorbed and loves himself a bit too much. I can't listen anymore.
