WV Freedom ,

Only place in WV to get real news!

Tom Roten is a part of my daily routine and is the only reliable source to find out what is happening across West Virginia. So glad your back and iHeart and Loot Press have been removed from my life. If you can’t handle the truth and can be intimidated by the establishment politicians you are no longer a news source I trust. Keep up the awesome work Tom!

Waste of time

I might amend the title of my review because this podcast is more inane than just a simple waste of time. At best, it’s filled with jingoistic, vacuous bromides designed to replace critical thinking; at worst it’s a compendium of mis/disinformation delivered with the rehearsed confidence of the truly deluded. West Virginia and its voters deserve access to better “media” than this.

High ranking captain in roten army

Well , I think about the highest compliment I could give the show is when Rush Limbaugh died I was devastated and the feeling of despair over loosing a close friend and ally. When I learned Tom’s show was gone I felt it all over again and prayed that somehow he could return on another show Well the lord answered those prayers and the great Tom Roten is back. Best show ever, best friend ever and the best thing to happen locally and for our country. Tom is and always has been the real deal and I am glad to call him friend for over 20 years you want the truth and to be shot straight with you came to the right place. Don from Mason County
