Nevada Magazine to host weekly radio show

Nevada Magazine publisher Janet Geary, editor Matthew B. Brown, and other staff co-host a weekly radio show in partnership with America Matters Media.
Nevada Magazine, the official state tourism publication for 77 years, has partnered with Reno-based America Matters Media (formerly known as Nevada Matters) to host a weekly Nevada Magazine radio show.

"In almost four decades I have never been involved in a talk show that can do as much for Nevadans as the Nevada Magazine talk show," says America Matters Media reporter and host Eddie Floyd, "which has been the goal of Nevada Matters Media ever since its beginning on KSRN when Bob Carroll was the station manager. It has always been our motto to 'enthusiastically educate, entertain, and enlighten everyone everywhere,' and Nevada Magazine certainly will do all three."

Nevada Magazine publisher Janet Geary, editor Matthew B. Brown, and other staff co-host the show, which tapes live from the Reno Town Mall on Fridays from 10 to 11 a.m. It can be heard at that time on Renegade Radio, found on 101.3 FM in Northern Nevada or online at The public is invited to attend the live show.

The Nevada Magazine show can also be heard Sundays at 6 p.m. on Fox News Radio, found on 99.1 FM in Northern Nevada or online at, as well as various times Monday through Saturday on the aforementioned Renegade Radio.

Just as readers of Nevada Magazine have enjoyed an educational mix of history and tourism stories in print and online over the years, that same format will carry over to the radio.

"We will keep listeners informed about what can be found in the pages of Nevada Magazine and on our website,," Geary says, "but we also want the community to be actively involved. We envision audience members and callers telling us about their fondest Nevada memories, or maybe their favorite Nevada event or destination. We will also invite our partners in Nevada tourism to be guests on the show."
