FM NewsTalk 97.1 Station Information

To the Listener

Live and Local returns to weekdays noon to 3!

I am thrilled that we are returning to a local host again in one of our prime midday slots.  Marc Cox has been with the station for over six years, and he is now hosting The Marc Cox Show every weekday. 

This move will enable us to do a better job covering all the local buzz, national races, local news and entertainment, and of course, strong opinion each and every week day.  Drop me an e-mail and let me know what you think…
