Randi Rhodes will not be returning to her Air America Radio show after being suspended last week (4/4/08 RBR #67). The network announced yesterday that she had resigned.
Air America Media issued this statement, attributed jointly to Charlie Kireker, Chair, and Mark Green, President: “Last week Air America suspended Randi Rhodes for abusive, obscene language at a recent public appearance in San Francisco which was sponsored by an Air America affiliate station.
Air America Media was informed last night by Ms. Rhodes that she has chosen to terminate her employment with the company.
We wish her well and thank her for past services to Air America. We will soon announce exciting new talent and programming that will accelerate Air America’s growth in the future.”
