Air America goes silent, files for bankruptcy
The New York Times is reporting this afternoon that Air America, whose affiliates included Clear Channel's KKGN "Green 960" in San Francisco, has ceased broadcasting and will file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation. Green 960 had picked up Rachel Maddow, Randi Rhodes and Thom Hartmann from Air America during the progressive network's six year run. But Rhodes and Hartmann left the network and now are with different syndicators. Their shows still air on Green 960. Air America filed for bankruptcy once before, Chapter 11 reorganization, in 2006, but apparently never made money.
