WXDX/Detroit to flip to Progressive Talk

Metro Detroiters are finally getting the "Progressive Talk" format, as Clear Channel's WXDX-AM (1310) will flip over on Monday and broadcast many of the liberal Air America's personalities, including Al Franken.

From 6-9 a.m. WXDX will run a local show, reportedly with Nancy Skinner, then Jerry Springer talks lefty politics (not dysfunctional strippers) from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.; Al Franken airs from 12 to 3 p.m.; Ed Schultz from 3-6 p.m.; Randi Rhodes from 6 to 10 p.m.; Mike Malloy from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.; and the Best of Air America goes all night.

Clear Channel has been converting several of its AM stations to "Progressive Talk," finding that the format pulls in a younger, more diverse audience than most talk radio.
