Air America Dumps Sirius and Most of its Audience

This morning I turned on my Sirius satellite radio to tune in to Air America Radio 143 and Morning Sedition, which has been my usual morning routine since December of last year, yet the strangest thing happened, it was gone. In it’s place was duplicate programming from Sirius Left which usually resides one channel down the dial at 143. Now I have to say, the only reason I purchased Sirius was to get Air America. Of course I have greatly enjoyed the other programming but the main purpose was Air Amercia. So, after fumbling through their website to find a customer service number I called up Sirius only to be told that Air America decided to drop Sirius to go exclusively with XM. WTF?

You have to understand, there is a significant investment in equipment involved in purchasing satellite radio. At the time I purchased my stuff Air America was only on Sirius and had been since their inception. This means that with their dropping of Sirius they have likely abandoned a good portion of their listenting audience. Read, there are alot of pissed off people across America this morning! If you are one of those people I suggest you join me in contacting the Air America Corporate offices to voice your concern.
