Air America finds itself off to an inauspicious start.
From the Chicago Tribune
After just two weeks of broadcasting, Air America Radio, the fledgling liberal talk-radio network featuring Al Franken and Janeane Garofalo, was pulled off the air this morning in Chicago and Los Angeles, the network’s second- and third-largest markets, in a dispute over payments for airtime.
Arthur Liu, owner of Multicultural Radio Broadcasting, which owns Air America affiliates WNTD-950 AM in Chicago and KBLA-1580 AM in Los Angeles, said Air America bounced a check and owes him more than $1 million.
This is probably the funniest thing I’ve seen from Franken since “Stewart Soils Himself.”
