Liberal 'Air America' Files for Bankruptcy

Air America Radio, a liberal talk and news radio network that features the comedian Al Franken, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, a network official told The AP.
The network had denied rumors just a month ago that it would file for bankruptcy. On Friday, Air America spokeswoman Jaime Horn told The Associated Press that the filing became necessary only recently after negotiations with a creditor from the company's early days broke down.
The network will stay on the air while it resolves issues with its creditors, Horn said. In addition to Franken, the network also features shows from liberal talk show host Randi Rhodes and Jerry Springer.
Horn declined to name the creditor with which talks had reached a logjam. The company will operate in the interim with funding from its current investor group.
Air America also said Friday it had named Scott Elberg as its new CEO. Elberg, a former general manager of the radio station WLIB in New York, has been with the network since May of last year.
The filing marked the latest turbulence at the liberal talk radio network, which went on the air two years ago. This April, Danny Goldberg stepped down as CEO and was replaced by an interim chief executive from a management consulting firm.
"Nobody likes filing for bankruptcy," Elberg said in a statement. "However, this move will enable us to concentrate on informing and entertaining our audience during the coming months."

Lawdy! Lawdy! I am getting sick of this Foley nonsense. It's funny how the Democrats have made the Foley scandal the center of national news so as to divert people's attention from the fact that Democrats have absolutely nothing to say on any issue for the Mid-term elections except that they hate Republicans and they want everyone else to hate them as well.

Yep, still here. Things are heating up with the midterm elections just a month away. Gotta get sick of politics in times like these. I used to listen to Beck every day from 10 - 12 on WAEB (from the Lehigh Valley) but find John Gambling on WABC (from NYC) refreshing. Since I got my PSP (Playstation Portable) I haven't been listening to much Talk Radio at home in the evening. Still...I listen to Talk Radio about 7 hours during the day when I am at work. 7 hours a day of politics is more than anyone should listen anyway. My next conquest will be to get the handheld XM reciever. Beautiful full color display and you can record up to 24 hours of shows and listen to them whenever you want to!
