Air America does Dallas

Air America's round-the-clock political talk will hit the air Monday in Austin and debut March 21 in the Dallas area, replacing the Spanish-language programming on KXEB-AM (910). Air America is already on in Corpus Christi.

In North Texas, Air America's success could be limited by the reach of the low-wattage station. Static nearly drowns out KXEB in some areas, but officials at Border Media Partners, the station's owners, said they were trying to strengthen the signal.

Air America executives, who called the expansion in Texas the high point for the network, said Mr. Franken will find an audience, even in President Bush's home state.

"We're providing an alternative for a minority that feels alienated," CEO Danny Goldberg said.

KXEB's signal is not the greatest, and it gets a bit fuzzy to the west in Fort Worth. You can see the predicted signal contours here.

KOKE (1600) in Austin picks up the format next week. Brownsville is another market that has been rumored as well. And Corpus Cristi just signed on a few weeks ago.

Your radio station was "down" this morning (i.e. not broadcasting the morning of 7/13)

First, let me say that I love, love, love the fact that you broadcast Air America Radio. This is truly a salve for my soul. Keep up the great work.

However, please know that, over the past few months, I've found that your station does not air anything but static early in the morning -- this would be while the Morning Sedition show would be on. Today, 7/13, this happened and this is at least the fourth or fifth time that this has happened over the past few months.

Just wanted you to be aware of this so that you can handle any problems that might be occurring.

Stay on the air. Thanks.
