Air America's new flagship: WWRL-AM in NYC

A long-rumored change becomes reality as the liberal Talk network will make a move from its current home at WLIB/New York to crosstown Access.1 Communications-owned Urban Talk WWRL beginning on September 1. Air America Radio says the change represents a new strategic alliance between the two companies that will provide a long-term flagship in New York City for AAR's network programs.

"We are thrilled about our new partnership with Air America,” said Access.1 President/COO Chesley Maddox-Dorsey about the just announced deal. "It is important that we partner in offering the nation's largest radio market a strong, progressive voice."

No word yet on the fate of WWRL's current line-up of programs, including the nationally syndicated shows, Doug Stephan's Good Day, ABC Radio Network's Larry Elder, and Fox News Radio's Alan Colmes, along with local shows hosted by Sam Greenfield and Armstrong Williams.
