Air America to Lose its Flagship Station?

By: Magnolia Tribune - March 4, 2006

Is this Air America’s final approach?
In a development sure to rip the heart right out of the liberal radio network’s already ailing body, it appears extremely likely their leased New York City flagship station WLIB-AM will soon abandon Air America programming.

Even worse, litigation looks probable over the station’s lease.

While the network’s last day on WLIB isn’t known for certain, an internal source providing backing documentation points to the end of March. At this time, Air America parent Piquant LLC has no firm back-up plan for where in the nation’s largest radio market its programming will now air.

Some inside the firm are already referring to WLIB in the past tense.
Ace offers this comment:
Let me get this straight: A nasty, juvenile hate-America radio station featuring the talents of Al Franken (Stuart Saves His Family, LateLine, and of course 97 useless seasons on Saturday Night Live, when Adam Sandler and Jimmy Fallon were making movies after two seasons) and Jeanine Garafolo (the ugly chick from the forgettable Truth About Cats And Dogs, The Matchmaker, and a dozen other “movies” that went directly to Blockbusters’ “Buy Six For $3.00” rack) has failed to attract a significant audience?
