"Liberal voices to hit Charleston AM airwaves"

I think this is from South Carolina:

Liberal talk radio debuts in Charleston today when Clear Channel Radio launches WSSP Progressive Talk Radio 730-AM...

The Al Franken Show airs on WSSP from noon to 3 p.m., the same time slot as Rush Limbaugh on conservative talk station WSC 94.3-FM...

Conservative talk radio, including Limbaugh and Dan Moon, was broadcast on 730-AM until August, when Clear Channel switched the format to 94.3-FM, which had been a rap station. Clear Channel had simulcast conservative talk radio on 730-AM and 94.3-FM.

During the day, 730-AM will have 5,000 watts of power. Federal regulations governing AM stations require 730-AM to power down to about 100 watts at night because the AM signal travels much farther after sunset and can interfere with radio programming in other cities. WSSP will be heard as far away as Savannah...

Rog the SC location, though it is on the same freq of a former urban format station. Still a limp signal walked on by Radio Havana... delicious irony!

I listened to Air America all day on Progressive Talk Radio AM 730 out of Charleston, SC. But this week I can no longer get it. It seems they have discontinued airing progressive talk. It was my only link to sanity in the community where I live (Hilton Head) which is so right wing it's scary.
Help! Where can I hear progressive talk?
