For those students who are working online: It's helpful to have a teacher on the other side of the screen while you're trying to figure out the math, the science, the historical significance, etc. while you're learning a new concept.
Good afternoon-am hoping you can provide me with information regarding an apparent change in your weekend format for broadcasting-I was so disappointed on Saturday and Sunday not to have any local programming-now more than ever we need to be together in a community and your radio weekend shows always provided that before. What's happening?
where was john macdonald this weekend.?
Does anyone know if John Macdonald will come back? I start my weekends with him.
Where is John ?
Where is John Mac. When did WGAN switch to 100% wacko radio hosts?
Where's John??
I'm getting mixed messages....during the CBS and local news segments concern is expressed about the virus. Ken and Matt also express concern. Hugh Hewitt does but then from noon until the end of the day the virus is a big democrat scheme to dethrone Donald McRonald. Which is it? As an essential worker I've witnessed all week people NOT staying home. Now it's mandatory to stay home and yet Rush, Howie, and loony Mark say it's OK to go out and spread the fake virus? Which is it Portland Radio Group? Do you think it's good to have folks come in from out of state and just wander around infecting people? You have a responsibility to broadcast honestly and in a way that doesn't endanger people and yet you fall on the old, "Views and opinions of syndicated shows do not necessarily reflect those of....." You are not living up to safety standards and are sending out irresponsible messages for half of your broadcast day. That's not operating in the public interest and that's part of the agreement you have with the FCC. You need to fix this pretty quick.
I am so shocked at the change to the morning show. Now you will/do provide a one-sided outlook, just like Howie and Rush. Horrible idea.
Hi. This is an avid listener, Jean. I miss Ken, where did he go? Like you too Matt!
WILL NEVER LISTEN TO YOUR STATION AGAIN PURE SCUMBAGS!!!!!!
So are you going to address why Ken was fired? Don't say it was financial.
