Air America Retools

FYI, courtesy of my inbox:

Dear EmailNation Subscriber,

For the past two months, new management at the liberal talk radio network Air America Radio has been working hard to re-launch a great idea -- talk radio for progressives that's informative, opinionated and entertaining.

Starting this week, the network has rolled out a new line-up, a redesigned website and a lively new blogger, Nancy Scola, who is posting many times each day. For this re-launch, Air America hosts have also interviewed some thirty leading political and public figures, including John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Eliot Spitzer, Michael Bloomberg, Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Gloria Steinem and Ralph Nader.

Featured in the reinvigorated line-up are new weekday programs The Lionel Show, This is America with Jon Elliot and the Air Americans hosted by Mark Riley and featuring roving contributors Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Mike Papantonio, David Bender and RadioNation's Laura Flanders, among others. The weekend line-up will receive a dose of fresh voices with five new programs, including the new RadioNation with Laura Flanders.

A new weekly one-hour program broadcast each Sunday at 1:00 est, RadioNation with Laura Flanders features Nation writers, editors and authors discussing the most pressing political, social and cultural issues of our time. This Sunday tune in to hear conversations with Katrina vanden Heuvel on Iraq and Alberto Gonzalez, David Corn on the Democratic presidential contenders, Betsy Reed and Gabriel Thompson on the immigration debate and Liza Featherstone and Pete Montalbano on the efforts of Starbucks' workers to form a union.

Air America Radio is broadcast on 64 stations nationwide and on XM satellite and can be heard via live Internet streaming on
