Air America Idiot Yanked From Stations

I didn’t think they would start collapsing this fast. Sure, I said they were doomed, but c’mon! Two weeks? And after receiving a fairly glowing revue from NPR’s Ombudsman, whose listeners you were precisely aiming to swipe? What the hell happened?

Arthur Liu, owner of Multicultural Radio Broadcasting, which owns Air America affiliates WNTD-950 AM in Chicago and KBLA-1580 AM in Los Angeles, said Air America bounced a check and owes him more than $1 million.

A-ha! Filthy lucre! Obviously, the media overlords decided you folks needed a good whomping.

“They bounced a check today,” Liu said. “It’s a default. They have paid only a very small portion of what they owe us.” Liu declined to say how much Multicultural is owed, but did say he is holding $1 million in checks that Air America has asked the company not to cash.

Of course, Air Idiots have a different take on the matter. From Chairman Evan Cohen’s press release:

“MultiCultural Radio Broadcasting’s conduct in this matter has been disgraceful. To shut off a broadcast that listeners rely on without warning and in the middle of discussions is the height of irresponsibility and a slap in the face of the media industry.
