The rest of the weekday schedule is made up of nationally syndicated talk shows, including Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Clay Travis & Buck Sexton, Joe Pags, Jesse Kelly, "Coast to Coast AM with George Noory" and "America in the Morning.[5]

Weekends feature programs on money, health, gardening, guns and technology. Weekend hosts include Bill Cunningham, Art Bell, Kim Komando and repeats of weekday shows.
