Much like they did in 2004, Air America plans to make their presence known at both the Democratic and Republican conventions this year. Here's the press release:
NEW YORK -- Air America Media is traveling to both the Democratic National Convention in Denver, and, yes, the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis. Air America hosts Rachel Maddow, Thom Hartmann, David Bender and Sam Seder will be reporting live from both venues, featuring interviews and analysis with top newsmakers, opinion makers and bloggers. Chuck D., Richard Greene, and Jon Elliott will also be reporting from Denver, and the irreverent Lionel from Minneapolis.

Plans for the Republican National Convention, taking place September 1-4 in Minneapolis-St. Paul, include AAR's outspoken liberal hosts reporting from the decidedly conservative convention:

"Our goal is to be politically direct and incorrect and to cut through all the standard talking points and the on-the-one-hand and on-the-other hand coverage by the Mainstream Media. We'll be reaching out to all Air Americans and Progressive Patriots on our 60 affiliates and XM and to all those who want to stream us live."
