LIONEL, the veteran talker who has been in syndication through WOR RADIO NETWORKS, joins AIR AMERICA RADIO for 9a-Noon ET, beginning MAY 14. LIONEL (real name MICHAEL LEBRON) replaces SAM SEDER, who moves to 4-7p ET SUNDAYS; his last weekday show will air FRIDAY (4/13).
"LIONEL will be an eclectic mixture of current events and off-the-wall topics infused with his special brand of humor," said AAR President MARK GREEN. "Because he's one of the biggest names in talk radio, LIONEL will be a very important addition to our line-up and affiliate base."
"AIR AMERICA is about one thing: radio. Not about ideology; but democracy. Radio that's an alternative to the usual, bumper sticker RUSH wannabe. Radio that's listenable," said LIONEL. "My goal is to garner and gather listeners. If you've got a radio, I'm your guy. Listeners want smart, funny, thoughtful, thinking, entertaining talk radio.With that in mind, my first show for AIR AMERICA will be 'Great Polkas of the 20th Century.'"
