Drudge bills this story as a denial, but it isn’t quite:
Statement of Evan Cohen, Chairman of Air America Radio:
“Air America Radio is temporarily unable to be heard on WNTD in Chicago and KBLA in Los Angeles, but Chicago and Los Angeles listeners can still hear our broadcast on the web at airamericaradio.com and on XM Satellite Radio (channel 167).
“MultiCultural Radio Broadcasting’s conduct in this matter has been disgraceful. To shut off a broadcast that listeners rely on without warning and in the middle of discussions is the height of irresponsibility and a slap in the face of the media industry. In addition, it is a clear violation of their contractual obligations, and we are seeking legal remedies against them in court.”
I read the thing twice, and I still don’t see anything denying that Air America bounced checks all the way from Chicago to L.A. In fact, the admission that AA is “in the middle of discussions” with the radio stations makes it sound like they were talking about money trouble.
