Air America Adds Franken Video Newscasts
December 12, 2005 at 6:34 AM (PT)
AIR AMERICA RADIO is adding video to its offerings with a daily video newscast by AL FRANKEN available as a video podcast and streaming on airamericaradio.com.
FRANKEN says he won't be seen on the clips; instead, he claims the videos will show "attractive underwear models" lip-syncing to his voice reading the report. "If people want to see me, there’s no shortage of places they can do it," FRANKEN says. "I’ve been on TV and in movies for years. I’m taking the 'FOX NEWS' approach and using paid spokesmodels to read my newscasts – but at least I’m being up front about it." The clips will launch after FRANKEN returns from a USO tour of IRAQ in JANUARY.
