AIR AMERICA and ACCESS.1 Talk WWRL-A/NEW YORK are reportedly heading their seperate ways. DAVID HINCKLEY in the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reports WWRL has been AIR AMERICA's flagship, "though it only carries part of the network's programming. WWRL has its own local morning show with ERROL LOUIS and carries non-AIR AMERICA hosts like STEPHANIE MILLER and ED SCHULTZ."
THE NEWS writes that AIR AMERICA's deal with WWRL expires soon there's no extension set. AIR AMERICA CEO BENNETT ZIER said, "As our contract is winding down, we are in negotiations with WWRL about extending the agreement."
