Newsweek has an article talking about the tumult at Air America. Not
only were they
building up huge amounts of debt, but there was no network "program director" to
handle clashing producers and hosts; just when they started to make headway,
some of their most popular shows were cancelled, angering listeners,
and they had
no realistic business model. Michael Harrison of "Talkers" is quoted
as saying that
liberal talk radio still can fly, but as for AAR,  "If they'd hired
broadcasters instead of a bunch of comedians, they would have had a
chance of succeeding."
