AM with I.Q., 1230 KJFK
KJFK was Northern Nevada's only voice of the Progressive viewpoint for 8 years. A lone voice apart from the other Reno talkradio stations airing views, information and attitudes from those who hold a Conservative ideology; KJFK offered listeners a different perspective.
The station was launched with an appearance by Al Franken in 2005, when nearly 500 people joined us at the Atlantis for now Senator Franken's appearance just days after we hit the air. We quickly became aware that a passionate audience was seeking an alternative to what some considered the "noise machines" blaring a singular viewpoint.
Unfortunately, this station was never able to generate the revenue necessary to sustain, and as of March 2013, KJFK aired it's final show.
This website was designed to give our audience the opportunity to continue following some of their favorite hosts KJFK had been honored to air through the years. At the time a new technology to some, and now as the number of Progressive Talk stations diminish across the country, increasingly the exclusive platform available for consuming information not highlighted by traditional Media.
Randi Rhodes has retired, Ed Schultz ceased production of his daily radio show, but others remain. Please take a moment to explore the links below. TuneIn's "Progressive Voices Channel" is a player featuring a line-up of familiar names to the KJFK audience: Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Bill Press, Mike Malloy, and "Ring of Fire" with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. You can access these programs on your computer or mobile device.
You'll also see links to other shows that may not be offered on the Progressive Voices player. Many of the hosts offer podcasting at their websites. If possible, support the hosts themselves by subscribing. These talented people, striving to bring you truth, will appreciate your help in their continued efforts. In any case, please continue to seek the information not being offered courtesy other over-the-air talk forums in Reno. KJFK listeners knew the importance of doing so.
To borrow the brilliant advice from Thom Hartmann you hear as he closes every show: "Tag, you're it."
Thank you again for listening.
