Sept. 11 idea likely cost Janeane Garofalo Air America Radio airtime


UPI News Service, 09/03/2006 

Former Air America Radio co-host Janeane Garofalo may have been downgraded to "guest host" status months ago due to a planned Sept. 11 show.

While no reason was given for the outspoken actress' exit from her daily role on the radio network's "Majority Report" broadcast in July, the New York Daily News reported that a source said the 41-year-old is saying she left due to a disagreement over a Sept. 11 piece.

"She said she quit because she asked to do a segment where she intended to interview some (Sept. 11) heroes, and the radio brass killed the idea," said the source.

While the "Reality Bites" actress' manager would only say that the rumor may be true, a spokeswoman for Air America Radio denied it.

"Janeane left AAR to pursue other professional opportunities, and we completely supported her decision," the spokeswoman told the newspaper.
