"Credible alternative to Air America" begins (Talk USA Radio)

Mr. Debbie Stabenow aka Tom Athans - previously the head of Democracy Radio (spawnplace of Ed Schultz and Stephanie Miller) - is starting a "credible alternative to Air America" called Talk USA Radio. After shuttering DR, he became an executive vice president with AAR.

Just in case you missed it the first or second time, he says:

"Progressive Talk Radio is a viable format that has great commercial potential... There simply needs to be a credible alternative to Air America to ensure that Progressive Talk has a chance for success... For progressive talk to expand beyond its current audience, programs need to be developed with experienced broadcasters as hosts that focus on entertaining an audience first and informing second. With a strong offering of entertaining and compelling programs, progressive talk can grow and thrive despite the overwhelming presence of conservative talkers."

He hopes to launch at the start of the year, and he presumably hopes not to shut down shortly thereafter.
