News/Talk

KSRO: 1350 AM, 94.5 FM, and 103.5 FM
Sonoma County's News Talk
Santa Rosa
The format is more talk than news and features a mix of syndicated hosts such as Laura Ingraham who lean to the political right and local hosts who discuss topics such as wine and food. It also includes interviews with musicians and artists.

Public Radio

KQED: 88.3 FM
KQED Public Radio
Santa Rosa

KRCB: 91.1 FM
North Bay Public Media
Rohnert Park

KSVY: 91.3 FM
Voice of the Valley
Sonoma
These stations program public radio classics such as "All Things Considered," and a wide variety of panels, commentators, and interviewers on topics of political and social significance. KQED, along with most public broadcasting, skews somewhat to the political left.

Rock

KRSH: 95.9 FM
The Krush
Healdsburg
The programming falls mostly within the "adult album alternative" format, which includes a wide variety of musicians ranging from Weezer to the Grateful Dead, the Wallflowers and Pearl Jam.

KNOB: 96.7 FM
96.7 Bob FM
Healdsburg
The format does play anything—so long as it doesn't stray far from conventional alternative rock formats.

KVRV: 97.7 FM
The River
Monte Rio
This station plays the Rolling Stones, Metallica, and almost everything in between.
