AIR AMERICA RADIO has inked a deal for WESTWOOD ONE to handle all network and affiliate ad sales. The network was previously represented by JONES MEDIAAMERICA.
AAR also announced changes to its programming lineup, moving 5-6a ET host MARK RILEY to 8p-midnight ET weeknights to host "THE AIR AMERICANS" with contributions from the network's weekend "RING OF FIRE" hosts ROBERT KENNEDY JR. and MIKE PAPANTONIO, current evening "POLITICALLY DIRECT" host DAVID BENDER, and weekender LAURA FLANDERS. JON ELLIOTT, who has been appearing in late nights, will continue midnight-3a ET.
The network is also, as expected, adding a show featuring new owner STEPHEN GREEN's brother MARK GREEN along with "panelists" ARIANNA HUFFINGTON and BOB KERREY, "THIS WEEK IN AMERICA," for 6-7p SATURDAYS, and an investment show with MARC SUSSMAN for 9-10a ET SATURDAYS. "CLOUT" with RICHARD GERRN will be added for 8-10p ET SATURDAYS, and the previously announced new SAM SEDER SUNDAY show and a revamped "RADIONATION WITH LAURA FLANDERS" will also be part of the weekend roster.
