: You may have heard the news that Air America has filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. The MIC 92.1 is saddened by the closing of the Air America radio network.
: As one of their first and most successful affiliates, we have always shared a special bond with the staff and management, and wish them well in their future endeavors.
: I want to assure our listeners that the future of the MIC 92.1 is secure as Madison's Progressive Talk Radio.
: Our weekday on air lineup will not change, starting with Bill Press at 5am, Stephanie Miller/8am, Ed Schultz/11am, Thom Hartmann/2pm - all provided by Dial Global Radio. Randi Rhodes (Premiere Radio) and Mike Malloy (Independent) will also continue their shows with no interruption.
: We will continue to provide Madison a truly progressive voice along with wonderfully local programming like "Books and Beats" with Stu Levitan (Sunday/10am) and the newly added lifestyle weekend program "The Kathleen Show" (Sundays/12noon).
: Translation: Yeah, it's a bummer, but we still have a decent lineup without them....
: ...Well, during the weekdays anyway.
props to 92.1 for the proactive and aggressive statement.
