    I’ve been listening to KXL for the past 13 years when driving to/from work but I may need to find a new news provider. Even as folks around me blasted Fox News, I continued to listen because the AM & PM shows gave me decent news snippets during my commute so I could remain current in my conversations. So imagine my embarrassment when, after my ‘drive home with Lacey & Dan’, someone mentions the school shooting earlier today. I knew nothing about it! Your news show mentioned the Obama’s moment of silence for Sandy Hook & even the Clackamas Mall anniversary, but no mention of a major news event from earlier in the day. This is not the first time that your am/pm commuting shows has overlooked a major event recently. I am certainly going to be investigating other news programs for my commute.
