That slogan was used when the format was on the air in Buffalo, 
iirc.  And the talk show hosts that are doing the best (financially 
and ratings-wise) are the ones syndicated by the former Jones Radio 
Network-- today known as Dial Global.  Schultz, Hartmann (who left 
Air America for Dial Global) and Stephanie Miller are all turning a 
profit and in certain markets, they are quite competitive, even 
though they are usually on weaker signals.  Ed Schultz is about to 
celebrate his 6th anniversary doing progressive talk.
