Reviews about radio

  • Roy
    On 570 News has the very best live-streaming of regular season and playoff games by Kitchener Rangers. Thanks! And thanks for this radio by chance to win a pair of tickets to their next game!
  • Theodore Wilson
    I like to listen 570 News radio and Kitchener Rangers Hockey Broadcasts. And I miss the host Brian Bourke and his Kitchener Today talk-show. He was local legend.
