More barely audible whining about Marc Maron being removed from Morning Sedition ensues, this time from Jonathan Larsen, who apparently used to work on the show in some capacity. He was let go in September, and now he's available on his blog to tell-all:
[Air America Radio CEO Danny] Goldberg's claim that he's dividing the morning-drive slot into two shows of radically different sensibilities rather than retain a sharp, critically acclaimed comedian at a time when fans of Howard Stern (some of whom had already discovered us and joined the ranks of our listeners) would be looking at alternatives, is both laughable and transparently false. The reality is he dislikes Air America's comedic elements. Rather than more of Sedition's comedy, Goldberg wanted the show to interview former NYC mayoral candidate [and Public Advocate] Mark Green.
How long until the Bavarian Illuminati - or whoever it is who really calls the shots at AAR - pulls the plug on Goldberg?
