Air America back in Los Angeles

Yes, indeed. They've got a new station: Clear Channel's KTLK 1150AM Los Angeles. Here's the line-up:

The Morning Sedition: 5AM-9AM

Al Franken: 9AM-noon

Ed Schultz: noon-3PM

Randi Rhodes: 3PM-7PM

Janeane Garofalo: 7PM-10PM

Al Franken is broadcasting live from Hollywood's Magic Castle; if that continues throughout the week I might try to disguise myself as a "liberal" and see if I can get in to the show.

There's a short interview with Stuart about his triumphant return to L.A. in Reuters Canada's "Franken's Air America Bounces Back With Bush Win". It includes this disturbing news:

...Clear Channel executives have said they might double to 44 the number of their stations converting to a "progressive talk radio" format by year's end...

Local coverage is provided by Steve Young in "Liberal talk radio comes back to Los Angeles". Billboard reports here.

Ed Shultz' press release is here:

The people in Los Angeles are about to get a double-barrel of a gun-totiní, meat-eatiní liberal... I canít wait to give the listeners in L.A. a chance to push back against the conservative noise machine that has crowded the talk radio airwaves for too long.

Thank goodness for Air America, and KTLK. At last, the truth can be heard freely in Southern California!!
