For Crying Out Loud, Pull the Plug Already

Air America has been involved in scams, scandals and has gotten extremely low ratings. Still, they remain on the air in what could only be described as very bad business management.

Today we receive word that another nail has been driven into the coffin:

THE liberal Air America radio network is going to be harder to hear in New York.
Next month, it is switching stations - to a weaker AM station, WWRL (1600 AM).

Al Franken and his lefty colleagues are leaving WLIB (1190 AM) apparently because they couldn't come up with enough cash for the owners, former Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton and his son, Pierre.

Starting Sept. 1, Air America will be on WWRL, at the top of the dial where AM signals are weakest - especially at night, when greater FCC restrictions apply.

But it's a good thing according the the Air Scamerica spin machine:

Air America Radio says the change represents a new strategic alliance between the two companies that will provide a long-term flagship in New York City for AAR's network programs.

And guess who they'll be bumping?

No word yet on the fate of WWRL's current line-up of programs, including the nationally syndicated shows, Doug Stephan's Good Day, ABC Radio Network's Larry Elder, and Fox News Radio's Alan Colmes, along with local shows hosted by Sam Greenfield and Armstrong Williams.

Poor Alan Colmes. His day job is taking a beating and his night job consists of defending idiot liberals and being Sean Hannity's punching bag. Sucks for you, Alan.
