It took quite a fight. AFRN was carrying Limbaugh and other right wing
talkers. After many months of campaigning by Schultz and some of his
listeners, the network had finally agreed to carry one hour a day of
Schultz, but on the agreed-upon start date, they reneged and refused to
explain. Schultz then mobilized his friends in Congress, who made life very
uncomfortable for AFRN and particularly for the person at AFRN who first
agreed to carry Schultz and then reneged without explanation. After several
weeks, AFRN relented. I suspect that Randy Michaels' association with
Schultz's show may have been what turned AFRN around.
