WJMP Akron dumps Air America Radio?

Just two months ago, WJMP 1520 AM in Akron/Kent Ohio became an Air America affiliate.

On July 5th, they'll be dumping AAR and going to the Jim Rome/Fox Sports format.

Hey, just because it's 1000 Watt and daytime only doesn't mean they're dumb.

There's no official confirmation, and I can't find a site for WJMP (one directory I found said that the FCC lists AAR's homepage as WJMP's homepage...)

Recall that WARF (the Clear Channel "Pirate Radio" stunt) recently started a liberal format that doesn't have any AAR programming. ("Clear Channel's secret plan for Air America") So, will WARF now be free to pick up some of the AAR shows? Er, why?

Developing...

WJMP Akron was only running a 30 day free trial of AAR, at least that's what I read on the sites message board.

Got a URL?

And, did WJMP have to pay shipping?

There is no such thing as a 30 free trial. WJMP jumped from Air America when the other radio station, 1350am Radio Free Ohio came on the air as progressive talk.
Today 1350am picked up Al Franken and Randi Rhodes

Monitoring Air America Radio [TM] so you don't have to.
