After a couple canceled weekday shows, after all the ups and downs of the network, after the unfulfilled offers of a new show and various fill-in gigs, and after a long period of stringing him along, Marc Maron has made the decision for them.
He's done with Air America.
In an email to fans this morning, Maron explains that it was he who came to the decision:
Well, Friends-In the meantime, Maron will concentrate mostly on his burgeoning standup comedy career.
Here some sad news out of the gate. I will not be returning to Air America Radio. Today will be the last time I call in on Sam Seder's show. I will not be guest hosting any Air America shows in the future. This is all my choice. No conspiracy here. I'm just done with that company. My relationship with AAR is officially over. Thank you all for your support over the last couple of years. I've got to let go and move on.
There are some things percolating at HBO. I have no real news about what or when or if but there is percolation.
