Off the Air America

Meant to be the liberal answer to conservative talk radio, Air America will soon go off the air after having promoted its stars like Al Franken and Rachel Maddow to national political prominence. “After years of brushing treetops and church spires, Air America, the radio network that was meant to be the broadcast antidote to the conservative baritone of Rush Limbaugh and the right-wing rantings of Michael Savage, has finally crashed and burst into flames. The last of its original programming went out on Thursday night. The demise of the network, founded in 2004 with the likes of Al Franken and Janeane Garofolo at the microphone, is one more blow to liberals in the US whose week began with the loss of Ted Kennedy's senate seat in Massachusetts. But it was not a big surprise. Air America never really gained the altitude it needed to survive.”
