In other words, they're stuck at 1.2. According to the Billboard Radio Monitor:
Inner City progressive talk WLIB switched into its current format with the Spring 2004 survey. Over the last year, the AM has maintained a four-book, 1.3 share average. After an initial 1.3 in Spring 2004 and a 1.4 in Summer, the Air America outlet settled into 1.2's. The Phase 1 results, so far, continue that momentum.
Hey, their words, not mine. Suggested spin: damn that corporate media hegemonic military industrial complex! We must get the FCC to revive the Fairness Doctrine so America can be kept informed of the real news!
Bear in mind that WLIB is Air America's flagship station, and they're located in New York City. If they can't make it there, can they make it anywhere?

Brian Maloney's latest blog entry (5/23/05) is called "More Trouble For Air America". No prog. talk hosts have made the reg. Talkers magazine survey of most popular...again.

more from radio equalizer:
"latest radio ratings in Boston--from Brian Maloney, the Radio Equalizer Blog):
WBZ holds first place with a 7.3.
Conservative talker WRKO up slightly, from a 4.1 to a 4.3, for sixth place overall.
Conservative WTKK-FM turns in a flat performance and ranks 10th.
Air America's two Boston stations disappear from the radar screen, that's right, they are no-shows. Blame the signal quality all you want, but they were getting at least some ratings before. Even major free publicity from the Boston Globe didn't help one bit. Can't wait to hear the lame excuses. Bet the Globers won't be dwelling on this news.
