RACHEL MADDOW will continue with AIR AMERICA MEDIA under a new agreement announced TODAY (1/15), but she'll be moving from 6-8p ET weekdays to a single hour in morning drive starting FEBRUARY 2nd. RON REAGAN will expand from 8-9p to 6-9p to fill MADDOW's former slot. MADDOW's evening schedule became busier in 2008 when she launched a regular show on MSNBC.
"RACHEL is a unique talent with an unlimited future," said AIR AMERICA CEO BENNETT ZIER. "We are delighted that AIR AMERICA remains her radio home."
"We’re elated with RACHEL's continued commitment to AIR AMERICA," added SVP/Programming BILL HESS. "As millions of Americans now know, RACHEL has become a breakout star and our affiliates and listeners will continue to benefit from her wit, intelligence and insight."
