AIR AMERICA RADIO doesn't have a permanent replacement for RANDI RHODES yet, but it does have a lineup of celebrity guest hosts to buy time until a permanent host takes over. The network says that "AMERICAN AFTERNOON," the 3-6p ET show filling the gap after RHODES left to join NOVA M RADIO, will be hosted by RON REAGAN JR., ROSEANNE BARR with JOHNNY ARGENT, and "THE VIEW" co-host JOY BEHAR in coming weeks, following this week's stint by RICHARD BELZER. REAGAN and BEHAR have radio Talk experience, REAGAN at KIRO-A/SEATTLE and BEHAR at WABC-A/NEW YORK, while BARR and ARGENT briefly tried out a show at KCAA-A/SAN BERNARDINO.
AAR President MARK GREEN said, "This is obviously a great lineup of progressive, entertaining talent who are each renowned for their humor and style. We’ll have fun and hope our listeners will too -- as we get ready to announce the permanent afternoon host to all Air Americans."
