Air America Loses Another One

Liberal radio network Air America has lost another station, this time in Chattanooga, TN. The reason: lack of viewers and advertisers.

The failure of Air America across the U.S. is because the liberal mindset does not fit well with lengthy radio shows. For an ideology based on emotions, the show goes on well after the liberal listener's daily emotional outburst has subsided.


Chattanooga’s oldest radio station, WDOD, has ended its 11-month experiment with progressive talk radio.

At 10 a.m. this past Monday, the station switched to a format featuring musical oldies and standards from the late 1950s and the 1960s and 1970s, according to Danny Howard, director of programming and operations for WDEF and WDOD....

The decision to drop Air America talk show programming grew out of the format’s failure to attract adequate advertiser support, Mr. Howard said.

The fact that Air America is only a few years old and has been through some tumultuous times made it more difficult to attract advertisers and listeners, he said.

“I think they will continue to do well in some markets, but we thought it was time to try something else here,” he said.

When the radio network fails even in the liberal bastion of New York City, it is obvious that Howard is being diplomatic by saying Air America will "continue to do well in some markets."
