Can you share the source of the survey you spoke on this morning regarding women taking care of & making decisions regarding the home? Thanks!
Here is a joke to make you all laugh! Why are crabs always so bad at sharing? Because there shell fish! Ha ha!
Why is Glenn Beck not on?
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 Don't think that I ever used profanity or anything like that I guess that I broke one of the unwritten unpublished rules.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.
Listening to Rush Limbaugh on-line and there is a crackling sound that is not evident with the Wichita Fall news station.
