I’m having a blast building a new FM talker for Radio Fargo-Moorhead, and now NRG Media and The Mighty 1290 are giving me a chance to continue to have a strong presence in Omaha...,” said Becka....Station Program Director Neil Nelkin said Becka’s program will air on the Mighty 1290 during weekdays from 4pm-6pm immediately following the Sean Hannity Show.
