Please ask Louie Belina to not discuss politics on his sports show. "Maroon Lives don't matter." That was a quote from Louie Belina. I find that statement to be offensive. Aggie values and Aggie Lives should matter, Maybe I took it out of context but that is the reason not to discuss politics on a sports station. Out of all of the offensive things that Louie has said in the past this has rubbed me the wrong way Most offensive thing that Louie Belina has ever said and that is saying a lot. Please stop talking about politics on KZNE. WTAW is supposed to the politics station. KZNE is supposed to be about sports. Make politics on the local sports station off-limits. Some of us don't agree with Belina's politics and do not appreciate him attempting to shame the fan-base for having a different opinion. Please pass this message on to Ben Downs. For some unknown reason I can't comment on KZNE's FB Page. Probably was too critical of Louie in the past. Don't think that I ever used profanity or anything like that I guess that I broke one of the unwritten unpublished rules. The comment in question was made on Monday July 13, 2020.
I have a joke for you all. Why didn’t they play cards on the ark? Because Noah was always standing on the deck. Ha ha!
I heard an advertisement for a supplement for dog food ... sounded like "ruffring.com" but that is not it.

I’ve been praying for you guys, and I am glad that y’all are back on 94.5 FM! I appreciate everything y’all do for our community, especially your news director Bill Oliver! I appreciate everything y’all do for our community, especially all of the Bryan broadcasting radio stations! I can’t ask for a better radio station for local news, and information than you guys! Love y’all a lot, and I appreciate everything y’all do especially all the Bryan Broadcasting family of radio stations! Keep up the great work y’all are doing! Y’all have a blessed day! Love, and blessings, Brandon Bunch college station, Texas
Need a status update please on win the new 94.5 FM will be back up, and running with out any audio glitches. What day, time, and date will it be turned back on, and when will I hear it again? Thanks!
Love you guys a lot! I just wanted to say thank you all so much for putting your station on 94.5 FM besides 1620 AM! I can hear y’all loud and clear on the FM dial! Many blessings to you all! Brandon Bunch college station, Texas
No sound on the app or internet streaming right now?
I just want to say that I find the constant advertisements for Vape's disappointing and honestly depressing. These machines lead to smoking and are not proven to be safer than cigarettes. It seems to me you are profiting off the addiction to nicotine of children and that sucks. If you have the courage to not run smoking ads then don't run Vape ads'.
