Interesting that it takes getting drunk and pulled over to reveal a person's true personality. Actors Mel Gibson, and now Reese Witherspoon.
I'm not a fan of a person that uses "do you know who I am?" Too bad, cause I thought Reese was one of the nice ones.
A local politician also tried pulling this stunt when she was pulled over, only to be embarrased when video from a police helmut cam was shown on TV/Internet.
Look, just like most of us I've been pulled over, and yes I hate police for a few days after being pulled over (if he wrote me a ticket), but I move on. And I don't say anything while being pulled over. It's the smart thing to do.
Sprint announced this week that they will be putting FM tuners in their cell phones. About time! The Radio Industry has been pushing this idea for quite some time. But the American cell industry keeps ignoring this.
Letting people have the ability to listen to local radio in their cell device without the need of a cell phone tower or Wi-Fi becomes very important in times of disasters. All this takes is a chip in the phone to add in a radio tuner.
We in Kansas know that when a storm hits our area, cell phones become unreliable and useless. And when the power is out, cell phones don’t work, there’s no TV … what do we do? We try to find a portable radio to listen to a local station for information and news.
The cost of adding a chip to pick up radio station via radio airwaves (not using the cell phone towers) is a few cents per phone. In fact, overseas in countries like England, cell phone users have an FM radio tuner in their cell phones.
This is a no-brainer and why it is taking the American cell industry so long to understand this is dumbfounded. This is a matter of public service.
I’m guessing what happened with Sprint is a high level Sprint executive lives in the NE, got hit by the recent Hurricane Sandy, power went out, looked at his useless cell phone and wanted to listen to local radio but couldn’t.
I’m hoping this is a trend for other cell companies to follow.
Looking forward to the New Year, KNSS will move from the successful Neal Boortz to Herman Cain, M-F 9a-11a. Herman has done a great job filling in for Neal over the years … now the show will become his. And as I hear, we’ll hear from Neal from time to time on the new Herman Cain program.
Covering news will continue to be a big part of KNSS Radio. We continue to be one of the few 24/7 radio news departments in the country. Our commitment to telling listeners what’s going on in their neighborhood, to what’s going on in the world is strong. We have some of the best local news persons in the region. That includes Steve McIntosh and Ted Woodward, both doing a great job with our morning show, M-F 6a-9a.
Keep in mind that as more of you get smart phones, you can now listen to KNSS via a free app. Find out more at KNSSradio.com.
Thanks for listening! Without you, KNSS cannot be the number-one rated talk station in this area.
This week we vote for a president. Regardless of how you vote, and if you vote, it is a right that all of us enjoy. We can reflect on all the rights we as Americans not only enjoy, but have because we breath. I sometimes reflect on how genius our founding fathers were at the start of this union. Sure, we've had some good and very bad times ... but in the end we are all Americans and I believe most all Americans want the best for all, not only us but everyone in the world. When we see wrong, I think we instictivly want to make it right.
I’m watching the hearing today on the diplomatic security in Libya. I am just dumbfounded how inept those responsible in the State Department are, and I am worried how much our intelligence has failed. On top of that, we, the American People, were misled to what happened days after 4 brave Americans died.
At best this is negligence by people that are just not qualified to be in the positions they are in. I would hope they would wake up and resign. If not, be fired.
