Air America's likely return to Chicago

Posted by Mitchell - February 25, 2005 (entry 285)

Two articles for today -- one in the Tribune, the other in the Sun-Times -- comment about the likely return to Chicago's radio waves of Air America Radio.

This is no surprise. Since Air America got back on the air in Los Angeles, it was no surprise that the network (the fastest growing radio network in history, with nearly 50 affiliates in under a year's time) would work hard to return to Chicago. Chicago remains, by far, the largest city without the network, even though the network was founded in Chicago.

In the Feder article, he alludes to a certain unnamed AM station which would basically become a hub for progressive talk (Jerry Springer is progressive?). Part of me wonders if such a hub may also include a certain daily news show out of New York.
