Switching from Fox to Newsmax for news

It’s so difficult to find the right contact to let a tv or radio show know they are doing something right.  I think this went to customer service, but I wanted to let Rob Finnerty know I’ve been enjoying his morning show:

“Sending a comment to Rob on Wake Up America to let you know how much I'm enjoying the morning shows (I watch several).  I Wake Up with you while on my exercycle--I do about 10 miles, stopping to walk and stretch.  I'm 81.  I left Fox about 3 weeks ago, so this is some adjustment for an old lady. I think Newsmax is more conservative than Fox, however, there is a clear distinction on Newsmax between opinion shows and news shows.  I like that.  I can make up my own mind if you provide the sources. Your guests are reasonable, yet conservative, a view difficult to find on the alphabet media and other cable shows. No one is shouting at me or becoming hysterical. I'm a retired university librarian, so I'm not looking for recipes, fashion or theater reviews.  Thanks for the news. I've been blogging for over 17 years.”

Copied from Linked IN:
