Air America Phoenix Heading Off the Air
I can't find any news stories about this right now, but Charles Goyette, the local morning guy, has been talking about the sale of KXXT-1010 AM, the Phoenix affiliate of Airhead America. They are reporting that the station will convert to a religious station effective 2/1/06. :) The local manager is talking bravely about raising capital to purchase another station, but I suspect that AA is facing its final days in the Valley of the Sun.
There was a fair amount of gallows humor on the show; Goyette did an ad for a computer company noting that they'd done such a good job with KXXT's computers that he'd be able to type up his resume quickly. At one point the station GM said the word "sh*t" without the bleep.
Update: Brian Maloney obviously sniffed something out
a couple days before New Year's, but nothing was official then. It's obviously out there now, but Phoenix media hasn't reported it yet; does that mean Air America is too insignificant to merit coverage?
