There've been threads here on where to get Pizza, Bagels, etc - things us "Yankees" miss from up north.
What I'd like to know is where to find local News & Weather on the radio?
I usually listen to XM Radio in my car, but I often want to listen to local news, weather & sports. There are several "Talk Radio" stations, but I'm not into listening to the biased talking heads espousing this or that critical view of the issue of the moment. I just want plain old NEWS REPORTING, with a weather report here & there, traffic reports, sports headlines once in a while. In NY we had 3 stations like that. Missing that here.

I guess the lack of response is a sign that there are in fact no such radio stations in the SRQ area.

There are few news only stations anywhere. WBBM in Chicago is one that I listened to when we lived in the area.

I like a local conservative talk radio (like WFLA 970 in Tampa) for local conservative issues --- I turn them off when the national talk shows come on at 9 AM. I agree with Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh but I tire of listening to them, and besides, my listening doesn't change anything in Washington.
