Return balance to talk radio

I invite you to join me in a move to bring back a balanced perspective to local radio. Rush Limbaugh has become so shrill, hateful and almost maniacal in his rhetoric against the president that even the Republican Party is wishing he would go away.

KNCO can do better and Nevada County would benefit from a more open/even approach to national events coverage. In addition, we would all benefit from an increased focus on local events.

If you agree, please contact Bob Breck: to request a host that presents a more balanced perspective. Dump Rush and introduce a fresher approach, such as Tom Sullivan, who airs on KFBK from noon to 3 p.m. Tom covers a wide range of political, cultural and financial topics without taking a strong negative position. He has captured a “thinking” audience nationwide.

Let’s also encourage KNCO to cultivate increased local programming by taking advantage of the talents of Tom, Rita, Holly, et al. There’s enough interesting things going on in the county to fill the time.

Does KNCO have the guts to make a change that even the staff would like to see? I wonder who really makes decisions for “local” radio programming.
