In addition, AA has been rumored to be finally landing an LA affiliate 
and taking over WSAI/Cincinnati after the new year.  That would put 
them in a bunch of major markets--LA, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, 
DC, San Francisco & Miami among them.  Not bad for a network that has 
been on the air for less than a year.

Jones Radio Network has recently been repping AA and now it looks like 
Clear Channel, who has been signing on many of these new progressive 
talkers, wants part of that action.  This format seems to be finding an 
audience--and advertisers-- despite being put on flea-powered AM's in 
many markets.  Now that AA programming is being syndicated through 
traditional means, they seem to be thriving.  It looks like they're 
here to stay.
