Air America Radio, then "Air America Media", was a basically failed attempt to create a network that provided a 24/7 feed of liberal talk radio. The business model was flawed, the founders ran away, and they kicked out all their more interesting hosts. In their early days, they aired crazy, edgy, people like Mike Malloy, but in the end, they screwed him for many dollars.
After a Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding, the network was bought by investors Stephen L. and Mark J. Green, endured a significant restructuring, and then seemed to be chugging on tolerably well.
Or maybe not, as it ceased providing live shows on January 21, 2010, and filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation proceedings shortly thereafter.
Liberal talk radio alternatives still exist. However, they are no match for the (probably corporate powered) conservative media engine that promotes such wonderful people as Glenn Beck anywhere and everywhere in the United States.
