This is great, Air america is close to losing it's NYC flagship station. A staion that Air America's parent company PAYS 2.5 million dollars a year to have broadcast.
If a leftist network that pays 2.5 mil a year can't make it in leftist New York City.....

Can you say out of touch with mainstream america?

Get this, the station dropping the libs is WLIB..... BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Here it is.....



March 7, 2006 -- AIR America is close to losing its New York flagship station - knocking Al Franken and his liberal colleagues off the air on their second anniversary.

The network has a two-year lease with WLIB (AM 1190) that is reportedly set to expire April 1 - and at least one reliable report says it is "extremely likely" the deal will not be renewed.

Losing its New York outlet would be a serious blow to the fledgling liberal radio network. "Radio Equalizer" blogger Brian Maloney - who blew the whistle on questionable loans to the lefty network last year - published the first report that WLIB was on the verge of evicting Air America some time soon.

Air America's options for a new home are not promising. All of the city's other strong-signal stations are spoken for, leaving only weak-signal "fringe" stations that do not cover the entire city and suburbs.

Air America parent Piquant LLC has reportedly been paying Inner City Broadcasting - controlled by former Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton and his son, Pierre - $2.5 million a year to air Franken and others.

An Air America spokeswoman told The Post, "It's business as usual," and declined further comment.

Air America got unwanted headlines last year when it was learned that previous management had received what investigators called an "inappropriate" $875,000 loan - since repaid - from a Bronx charity.

Calls to Inner City execs were not returned.

The leading contenders to take over the WLIB lease are former Clear Channel exec Randy Michaels, who syndicates competing lefty talker Ed Schultz, and the new Radio One black-focused talk network that includes Rev. Al Sharpton.

You cant trust any thing put out by the radical right wing fringe NY post paper. Only the Communist News Network can post "true" stories about the left.

AL frankin was a sub -par comedian and a pi$$ poor "news" man.
I made the mistake of watching him on TV one day. My IQ fell 25 points listening to the diarrhea spewing from his mouth.

isnt it ironic that a fringe, left wing , wack job of a network be relegated to the FRINGE areas of the radio spectrum in NEW YORK?

maybe Rush, Sean and Glenn should be taxed for their success and the money be given to AirHead America,to remain on the air.

oh, wait, already been done to death.....welfare!!!!!!!!!!!

Well said, dragon002! Without Soros and company AA would have been relegated to that great network in the afterlife many broadcasts ago. Frankly I wish they'd stay on the air to continue to divert those support funds from places where they might do more damage! Their only audience is far-left captive anyway...
