    What’s going on with your live feed? I don’t have radio at work and your live feed is dead :-( My day is going to be so sad without my morning news. Kidding, but I do miss my morning news.

    I am hoping that I heard wrong this morning about a news release that Jews murdered a young man in Israel in what appeared to be a revenge killing. I am hoping that i didn’t hear what I am pretty sure that I heard. I want a copy of what was said and a retraction published if I heard right.

    - PLEASE STOP talking like your audience are children! I listen daily for news and timely traffic & weather, but may need to move because I find your vocal inflections so annoying. What am I referring to?: the trailing lilt, high-pitched tone you add to SO MANY words. It’s no surprise to find in your Bio that you were/are a School Volunteer, but you need to leave you kindergarten-voice in the classroom, because we’re adults in this job of yours and SICK of hearing you talk like you’re looking into a cradle and talking to a baby… I cant possibly be the only one who feels both annoyed and insulted about this. I’m compelled to finally complain because this trait is getting worse over time: where it was bad enough when you were only doing it when asking questions, you’ve gotten even worse about it lately by using this vocal tendancy even when making statements! PLEASE STOP this madness!,

    CRAIG LAST.

    I 100% agree. You said what I was going to say almost to the T. I literally don’t listen to KXL in the morning because of Steve. Your inflections on words, and the way you state things so lighthearted, that are other wise tragic events. Listen to yourself. KEX all the way. One more thing that drives me nuts, when you sign off from a story, Steve Leader, FM News one o wwwon. Stop
