    Local Sports Radio in Des Moines

    Those that live around DSM what local sports radio do you listen to? I cant find much because really the only thing I can find is 1460 sports fanatics and that is chris williams that is huge cyclone homer and 75% of the shows are non sports related plus recently once you get anywhere outside the metro the station fades out.

    Kotlar was doing sports radio in DSM before it even existed. He was one of the original hosts of Sound Off on WHO post Hawkeye football games. Sad news.

    I saw a headline that said "Cotlar was almost too nice for sports radio". This was exactly what i told my brother when I heard the news. Too nice, too positive, if those are your flaws, thats not a bad way to live and be remembered.

    Wow that's unbelievable. Sorry to hear it.

    No matter how much of a hurry you're in, do not drive thru standing water.

    Cars aren't made for that.

    This is quite shocking: Des Moines flooding: Larry Cotlar dies after being swept away by floodwaters

    Agree. Other than the Farley/Jake segments once a week in the fall/winter, it's awful.

    Also, I find it interesting how many calls Dan Patrick takes from people in Iowa. I don't listen that often, but it seems that he gets a lot on the air.

    KXNO, especially the Sports Fanatics. And believe it or not, I actually like listening to Chris Williams.

    Yeah, the times it "can be ok" are usually when he isn't there or at least ins't talking much. I get the impression he basically just shows up and talks for two hours (while Trent does all the prep) and it shows.

    He was on our side (and Drake's) in the recent Big 4 discussion.

    I usually listen to the Morning Rush on 1460 for my morning commute. They usually have Farley and Jake on for weekly segments in season.

    1700 has local sports from 12-2 (Ken Miller and Trent Condon) and 4-6 (Trent and Jim Brinson). The noon show is pretty decent. The afternoon show can be ok, depending on the guests/topics.
