Franken to leave Air America

Posted at 11:39 AM on January 29, 2007 by Bill Wareham

From the Associated Press:

NEW YORK (AP) - Big changes are coming at Air America Radio,
including the departure of its biggest star, Al Franken.

The liberal talk radio network has been in bankruptcy since last
fall. Now it's being sold to a real estate company, pending
approval of a bankruptcy court. The S-L Green Realty Corporation is
run by the brother of New York City politician Mark Green, who's a
frequent Air America guest.

As for Franken, his last show will be February 14th. There's no
official word on why the one-time "Saturday Night Live" star is
leaving. But Franken told The Associated Press earlier this month
he was looking into a possible Senate run.
