About KLZ


Rush to Reason is KLZ’s daily, afternoon, live, local, interactive Flagship program, hosted by 20-year radio authority and opinion-leader John Rush, who with a distinctively conservative perspective drills down into the issues that affect all of us as God-fearing citizens. Bringing reason back to radio, Rush to Reason is solution-oriented talk striving to activate listeners to be agents of positive change. Unapologetically commercially supported, John’s program is extremely results-driven, strategically creating a very consumer-minded environment that bolsters measurable, lucrative results for our sponsors. As a talk show host for CBC, John’s chief priority is the client’s advertising success, genuinely and aggressively endorsing and professionally adopting his advertising partners both on and off the air.

Laura Ingraham is the most-listened-to woman in America on political talk radio. The Laura Ingraham Show, heard every morning from 8-11am on KLZ, is ranked in radio’s Top 10 and airs coast-to-coast in 225 markets. Laura is the author of several New York Times bestsellers including The Obama Diaries, Power to the People, and The Hillary Trap. She has been a regular contributor on the Fox News Channel since 2007 and now hosts her own show on FNC, The Ingraham Angle. A former white-collar defense attorney and Supreme Court law clerk, Laura infuses her programs with a level of energy and commitment to conservative principles that grabs hold and won’t let go.

KLZ highlights local business owners during the “Ask the Experts” segment on weekday afternoons (1-3PM). Featuring only those businesses that provide the highest level of customer service, these consumer-oriented programs cover diverse topics such as real estate, finance, law and government, health and wellness, and more. Late nights on KLZ (10PM-1AM) Dana Loesch hosts her award-winning, nationally-syndicated daily radio show, The Dana Show: The Conservative Alternative. Dana appears regularly on Fox News, ABC, and CNN, and is the author of a best-selling book on gun control – Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America.

KLZ’s live weekend programming includes Drive Radio, hosted by John Rush, and Sportsman of Colorado, hosted by Scott Whatley.


Our commitment to our advertisers’ results is backed with KLZ’s behind-the-scenes team of strategic marketing experts that acts as an in-house agency. Full-time writers, sales executives, and production engineers work alongside management to asses and re-evaluate each advertiser’s campaign strategies on a weekly, if not daily, basis – continually collaborating to promote long-term success for each of our advertisers.


From Cheyenne, WY to Fort Collins, Greeley, Loveland, Longmont, and the entire Boulder/Denver Metro area all the way to Colorado Springs and Pueblo, KLZ 560 AM offers full Front Range coverage, reaching nearly the entire state of Colorado and most of the populated areas. Our signal is strong, clear, powerful, and consistent, and although our rates are localized, our coverage is truly substantial. KLZ simulcasts on 100.7 FM.


We are committed first, foremost, and forever to God & Country.


Every hour of every day, KLZ inspires and energizes our listeners-buyers in Colorado’s largest populations centers. Our listeners are loyal, passionate, responsive, and mature. Below is a snapshot of our typical audience:

  • Age 50+
  • Predominately male but with a strong female audience base
  • High-income, financially-capable, and creditworthy
  • Many business owners, managers, and entrepreneurs
  • Well-educated and well-informed
  • Mostly white with some African-American and Hispanic listeners
  • Largely home owners and long-term investors
  • Married with children and grandchildren


KLZ listeners have been repeat and referring customers of our commercial partners for decades. We consistently educate our listeners on air that their financial support of our heavily-vetted advertising partners is essential for KLZ to continue its long-time service to Colorado’s conservative community.


When advertisers agree to commit long-term (minimum 13 weeks) to our proven strategies, our commitment is a 2:1 return on investment.

I’ve been doing my radio show now for 6 months with KLZ, and I have made more than enough to cover my costs plus a good profit. My website has had much more traffic, and it’s been a definite boost to my bottom line.  Everyone I’ve dealt with at KLZ has been terrific. I recommend KLZ with 100% confidence!

  • Bruce Simmons, Reverse Mortgage Manager with American Liberty Mortgage

I’ve been advertising with John Rush since 2000 on KLZ. Customers from KLZ spend nearly twice as much as customers from any other source of advertising. After spending about $17,000 on KLZ this year [2017], I’ve already sold more than $50,000 in business . . . and that’s not including future business from these returning customers – which, I might add, will be hundreds of thousands of dollars. I highly recommend advertising on KLZ.

  • Dennis Brewster, owner of Extreme Auto Repair in Parker, Colorado

I have been an advertiser [on Rush to Reason] for 2 ½ years. In 2017, I received referrals that paid me back 250% of what I spent on my advertising. I am not sure where else I can find a 250% return on an advertising investment. I believe that the money I have spent has been an excellent use of my resources. Here’s to many years of a successful partnership!
