Bill Press

Bill Press began his career as a political insider and media commentator on KABC-TV and KCOP-TV, both in Los Angeles. Over the years, he has received numerous awards for his work, including four Emmys and a Golden Mike Award.

The former co-host of MSNBC’s Buchanan and Press, CNN’s Crossfire and The Spin Room, Press has built a national reputation on thought-provoking and humorous insights from the left side of the political aisle.

Press is the author of six books: Spin This! (Atria, 2002), Bush Must Go! (Dutton Books, 2004), How The Republicans Stole Christmas (Doubleday, 2005), Trainwreck (Wiley, 2008), Toxic Talk (Thomas Dunne Books, 2010), and his latest, The Obama Hate Machine (Thomas Dunne Books, 2012).

The host of radio’s nationally syndicated Bill Press Show, Press attends the daily White House press briefing and writes a syndicated newspaper column, distributed weekly by Tribune Media Services. Press resides in the nation’s capital with his wife Carol.

Stephanie Miller

Prior to going nationwide, Stephanie pulled #1 ratings at KABC and KFI in Los Angeles and other radio stations in New York and Chicago.

You know her from tons of exposure on TV, and on comedy’s prime stages: host of CNBC’s Equal Time, Oxygen TV’s I’ve Got a Secret, and many others. Stephanie has also appeared on CNN’s Joy Behar, Larry King Live, Reliable Sources, as well as MSNBC’s The Ed Show, Hannity and Colmes and Neal Cavuto on Fox News, the Today Show, the Tonight Show, Good Morning America, among many others.

Stephanie comes to the left, from the right. She’s the daughter of William Miller, Barry Goldwater’s 1964 Republican presidential running mate. Her humor and snappy political wit draws listeners from all sides and makes her the perfect antidote to cantankerous conservatives.

Jonathan Brandmeier

"The show has always stemmed from organic curiosity."

The Jonathon Brandmeier Show is an entertaining, offbeat look at news, pop culture, and sports — from the big trending topics to the stories about to fall through the cracks — combined with celebrity interviews and free-wheeling audience interaction. The topical conversations seamlessly gel into three hours of dynamic and unpredicatable radio.

Brandmeier has amassed an army of awards and accolades that cement his powerful industry reputation, including multiple Billboard Magazine Radio Personality Awards, TALKERS "100 Most Important Radio Hosts in America," and Gavin Report's "Air Personality of the Year."

From big national stories to weird local stories, the show goes beyond just what everyone else is talking about — choosing the topics listeners really want to hear and discuss.


Live and Local! Panama brings a mix of pop culture, sports, politics--both the serious and the absurd—and gives you the chance to speak out about it. Whether it’s happening nationally, around the world, or around the corner, Northern Nevadans have their own take on what’s happening.

Speak out about the issues that matter to you and your family with Panama, Producer Mike and their guests. And chances are you’ll enjoy a few laughs along the way!
