Al Sharpton on new "African- American- centered" network

No, the Rev. Al won't be appearing on AAR. But, you'll recall that Al Sharpton was in the car driven by an AAR Phoenix co-host when he was arrested for speeding while driving Al away from Cindy Sheehan's protest in Crawford. That co-host is the father of Jarrett B. Maupin II, a MiniRev.

From the current news:
Baltimore-based Radio One, the nation's seventh-largest radio company, and Reach Media, which owns and syndicates the highly successful ''Tom Joyner Morning Show," aim to roll out the network after the first of the year. Radio One owns a controlling interest in Reach Media...

As the centerpiece of the new programming, Sharpton is expected to be topical, if not entirely political. ''Life is political," said Liggins. ''Rush Limbaugh is political. Howard Stern has been political. That's the nature of the human existence. We won't focus exclusively on politics. We'll deal with the human existence of African-Americans in the broader landscape of America." Sharpton's show is scheduled to air weekdays from 1 to 4 p.m...
Just for fun, couldn't they get the Right Reverend on Air America? C'mon, maybe they could conduct "Survivor AAR" to choose which one of their losers he'd replace.
