WWAA/Atlanta drops Air America

...Joe Weber, the new owner of 1690, has dropped Air America as of today except for Al Franken. He is hoping to convert some AA listeners to his standards format but that could be a challenge.

I’m certain Air America will find another signal on the AM dial down the road so fans of the format shouldn’t be bummed for too long. And if you’re at work with a broadband connection, you can stream. Or you can get XM Satellite Radio ($12.99 a month).

1160, which had been Weber’s “Voice of the Arts,” is now business talk, if that’s your cup of tea. There are rumors that 1160, which has taken the WWAA call letters, could be the future home of AAR.
