AIR AMERICA MEDIA inks commentator and WONKETTE.COM founding editor ANA MARIE COX as its first WASHINGTON-based national correspondent. COX, who starts MONDAY (1/19), will be contributing text, video and audio content to AIRAMERICA.COM and to a weekly program to air on AIR AMERICA RADIO. She has served as WASHINGTON editor of TIME.COM and wrote for SUCK.COM, MOTHER JONES, and RADAR and writes for TINA BROWN's THE DAILY BEAST.
"We’re thrilled to have ANA MARIE's unique voice join the AIR AMERICA chorus," said SVP of Programming BILL HESS.
