Air America to stay on KXXT until they find a good home

KXXT-AM 1010 is AAR's home in Phoenix, and that station was recently sold to Communicom Broadcasting, a group of Xians.

Now, according to this:

[KXXT's general manager Bob Christy] says Communicom will change the station's format; however, it has graciously agreed to keep Air America programs on the air until it finds a new home.

Christy himself has the rights to AAR programming in Phoenix, and he's desperately looking for a new station:

Christy thinks Air America is worth saving... "This station never made a ratings book, prior to last fall," he says. "In the realm of talk stations, we're the third most listened-to station. We broke even in nine months, which is pretty amazing in radio."

Someone please check his math.

LOL, did you get this from my post on Baloney's terrible site?

Mr. Christy should contact the Boys and Girls club for a loan. They'll certainly invest in a radio format good enought to be ranked 24th in the market.
