As many of you may have heard, Air America Radio made its maiden voyage yesterday on the airwaves and the net waves. The sad fact is, as a new progressive station, it is just a small speck among rightwing, conservative owned and run stations.
We are confident it will be a success as people are starving for not only truth, but reasoned and rational thought and commentary on our airwaves. We hope you will find time to make it part of your day.
As it is said,
Air America Radio is a collaborative effort that brings together a group of experienced radio entrepreneurs with a talented team of creative artists. We are a new voice in talk radio: a smart voice with a sense of humor. It brings to the marketplace an unserved need. We give voice to what millions of Americans are thinking, but can't hear on radio. Until now!
The business team is joined by such well-known personalities as...
Saturday Night Live alum Al Franken joined the network early in 2004 and brings "team Franken" with him, (several of whom collaborated with Franken on his best selling book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them). Franken showcases his very original and witty political satire on Air America Radio. Other hosts include Janeane Garofolo (The Larry Sanders Show), Randi Rhodes, whose top-rated program in south Florida gained a reputation for no-nonsense talk radio that consistently beat Rush Limbaugh in ratings, and Lizz Winstead, The Daily Show co-creator long recognized for her social satire and political acumen. Rapper Chuck D of Public Enemy also contributes to the daily line up.
Radio professionals, print and TV journalists, Internet professionals, entrepreneurs, commentators, political satirists, publicists,... have joined forces under the Air America Radio banner to launch this exceptional radio network. Stay tuned.
