Air America Radio to depart Sirius satellite radio for XM
UPI News Service, 04/14/2005
Air America Radio will switch its satellite distribution from Sirius to Washington-based XM with a phased crossover beginning next month.
As part of the deal between the liberal talk network newly defined as "progressive talk," XM will rebrand its "XM Left" channel as "Air America Radio" in May.
Radio & Records said the deal also includes provisions for special live broadcasts of Air America shows from XM's Washington headquarters.
The affiliation with Sirius will cease completely June 11. Sirius spokesman Jim Collins said it's too soon to say what the programming department will do with the vacant Air America channel.
