Mark Walsh... said Tuesday that he gave up his CEO title earlier this month... the company also had put its programming director, David Logan, on administrative leave earlier this month. He declined to comment on the reasons for Logan's departure, and Logan also declined to comment...
In early April, everything was presumably going swimmingly. However, on the 14th the Gates of Hell opened. Maybe "earlier this month" means "shortly after we lost our signal in the #2 and #3 markets."
But, wait, there's more!
...the company is now being run on an interim basis by David Goodfriend, the company's lawyer... Goodfriend has no operating experience in radio other than a stint as a disk jockey in Beloit, Wis.

If AA's out of business long before the elections, does the content even matter?
It's a half-assed vanity project from the get go, and even people who agree with the politics (from Harry Shearer at the outset to the LA Times most recently) are saying it's just plain BAD radio. And the business model is so screwed up that the Pets.com sock puppet is going, "holy smokes that's a shitty business model."
