No good news for AAR/WLIBBy Marion Delgado at 3:49 AM
Maron turned down hosting his third show after 2 cancellations and a coast to coast move and a huge pay cut.
Janeane is leaving Majority Report. Sam says one reason was schudule and monotony.
The new owner of WLIB may kick them out - it's always been tension with the old Caribbean WLIB after midnite anyway
Ratings are still good, but al franken is expected to drift away within a year.
of all the great innovative shows none are left - no morning sedition, no majority report in its original form, no unfiltered.
AAR is still a good source of morning news and people like randi and mike are decent sources of op-eds and news. Sam Seder still has a strong show and thom hartmann is a great syndication find.
The weekend shows are coming on strong, especially radio nation with laura flanders, ring of fire with rfk jr and mike papantonio, and politically direct.
still, things have looked better.
My own personal opinion: much of the fun and purpose of Majority Report was lost in november of 2004. Clearly janeane had a strong feeling of why are we bothering to do this ever since.
