Air America signs LMA with Bonneville/DC


Air America Media is coming to Washington, D.C., airing progressive Talk  on 1050 AM through an (LMA) with Bonneville. The LMA, replacing Bonneville’s current simulcast with All-News WTOP-FM will enable Air America to broadcast its independent political voice, featuring such talent as Rachel Maddow, Montel Williams, Lionel, Ron Reagan and others throughout the national capital region.  Air America will manage programming, marketing, and sales operations for the facility, beginning later this month. 
“We are looking forward to bringing all-new, progressive news/talk programming to 1050 AM and actively engaging listeners across the most politically-influential radio market in the United States,” said Bennett Zier, Air America Media CEO.  “This agreement and our full-time entry into the Washington, D.C. market are an integral part of Air America’s strategy to expand our listening audience.”
The station’s new call letters, on-air launch date, programming line-up and other details will be announced shortly.
