AIR AMERICA MEDIA's AAM SYNDICATION is launching veteran talker LIONEL into syndication on MAY 26th. LIONEL's new show will air weekdays 6-9a ET. The host previously had a show in AIR AMERICA RADIO's lineup and has worked at WABC-A/NEW YORK, and WFLA-A/TAMPA (where he picked up the "LIONEL" name as a frequent caller to the station), as well as in syndication through PREMIERE and WOR RADIO NETWORK and at pioneer streaming Internet talk station EYADA.COM.
"LIONEL is the perfect morning talent for today’s talk radio stations, both AM and FM," said SVP/Programming BILL HESS. "Talk stations in all genres are looking for entertaining, topical programs for the key morning drive time slot. LIONEL is a proven winner in that daypart, given his top-rated performance at WABC/NEW YORK and success in national syndication over the years."
"LIONEL is a long-standing member of the AIR AMERICA family, and we’re pleased to renew our relationship with the launch of his new morning drive-time show," added CEO BENNETT ZIER.
