Listener Comments and Reviews

Why has WIBQ been off the air since about 2:15 today? How much longer? Why only a FAX number for WIBQ instead of a phone number? Absence of my favorite talk station feels like some kind of "withdrawal"! Let me know -- something!

I am suffering too, I am clueless. Funny that after the Rush outrage a station goes totally off the air! Probably Obama (that's just a half joke).

They were off the air before Rush made his "accurate" comment about Ms Fluke... I watched her opening remarks at the Democratic "news conference"... She wants someone else (Georgetown - religous school) to pay so she and others can have unlimited sex... She's thirty years old and can't afford the pills... You've got to be kidding me!

Sorry... I wanted to say how much I miss WIBQ.

So why is WIBQ off the air?
By: Jack on March 8, 2012

I too find it a little more than odd that the station has been off the air for this length of time and no statement or anything has been made. I even used the contact us button on their website thinking that even if I didn't get a personal email reply from them,they would at least post something on their site. It seems they have a knack for going off the air every couple of months or so for a day or two,but nothing this long.Things that make you go hmmmm! I guess.

No idea why they are off-air. Nothing on their twitter account either. Their home page says they are off-air (no reason given) but you can listen on-line. I tried before and got static but can listen now on-line. Weird.

I just saw in the paper on-line that they are off air due to storm damage. Hope to be back on this week.
