“It is with the greatest regret, on behalf of our Board, that we must announce that Air America Media is ceasing its live programming operations as of this afternoon, and that the Company will file soon under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code to carry out an orderly winding-down of the business.”- Air America
Air America helped the careers of now Senator Al Franken and MsNBCer Rachel Maddow. That accomplishment is about all they can claim when it comes to success. The radio station was launched in 2004 to be a leftist response to the Rush Limbaughs and Sean Hannitys of talk radio. They failed from the very beginning to come close to matching conservative talk listenership and never caught on.
