    KXNO Morning Show

    Please bring back Miller and Deace. Biggest win of the year for ISU so far this year, and 30 minutes into this show all they have talked about are names of banks, Drake, and an announcer that got suspended for using the term 'choke job'. Just a terrible worthless show.

    I think they like to wait until around 7am to talk about local main events since that is when most people listen. Not sure though.

    Yes, it is. They did talk about Hoiberg being a surprisingly good coach given his lack of experience, and then compared him to Brad Stevens who did more in his first three years while completely forgetting that Stevens was an assistant for six years and took over a program that was already successful. Idiots. I only listen when my radio is still there from Murph and Andy the previous day.

    Re: KXNO Morning Show

    Maybe they finally realized that a majority of their listeners listen in the 2nd hour, and that's when they will cover the "major" events. Last year, they ALWAYS talked about ISU/Iowa right away at 6 AM, and would get to Drake and UNI at 7:30 when I would start to listen. Drove me nuts!

    Local sports radio gets dogged a lot on this board. And it is absolutely deserved because it is terrible.

    You don't have to listen to morning sports news. Listen to NPR or a morning zoo show instead, whichever suits your fancy.

    I used to think this as well, because it would make the most sense. But my drive time is from about 7:10am to 7:45am and they have gone that entire time without even saying the words "Iowa" and "State" together even on the days of games and days after games. I've just concluded that they simply don't talk about Iowa State.

    Ross and the other two have been yapping lately about how their audience turnover timeframe is about 15 minutes, so those who tune in may not realize that they have already talked about certain subjects. Well then you guys better start talking about actual sports topics and getting through them quickly, even if it means repeating some of what you already talked about in the 6:00am hour again in the 7:00am hour!! Drives me NUTS when they spend entire segments in the 7:00am hour (the prime drive time hour) talking about stupid **** that has nothing to do with sports (like music they liked when they were kids, beer they like, etc. etc.). TALK SPORTS!!

    Bring back Miller and Deace. I'd even be willing to make a monthly donation to KXNO of a nominal amount if they were able to bring them back. These guys are awful, and I don't give a rip what they say about their "great ratings."

    Re: KXNO Morning Show

    I tuned into Travis and Tim this morning for the first time in awhile to hear what they said about the ISU victory. In my 10 minute commute at 7:20, I heard 10 minutes of them talking about bad detective work, court proceedings, and bail in the Oscar Pistorius case.

    It validated why I don't listen to them.

    Re: KXNO Morning Show

    I'll stream the afternoon shows all football and basketball season, but what is it with having absolute horrendous morning sports radio? Cotlar was just as bad or worse as these TnT jokers. Miller and Deace in the mornings didn't last long but was solid, don't care for Deace individually but they could break down Iowa/ISU in a competent and clear way.

    I for one can't stand to listen to them for theirs voices alone let alone poor coverage of Iowa State.

    Turned in from 7AM to 7:30. Nothing about ISU. 30 minutes I can't have back.

    Re: KXNO Morning Show

    I am not wearing cardinal and gold glasses either. When Iowa plays I expect the show to center on the Hawks while sprinkling in other stories. I don't care about the Blade Runner or Tim's girlfriends that were Husker fans.
