STATEMENT OF CHARLIE KIREKER, CHAIR & MARK GREEN, PRESIDENT, FOR AIR AMERICA MEDIA
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.
The reason for Rhodes’s suspension at a San Francisco affiliate sponsored event was her raw language about Hillary Clinton in a 20 minute standup comedy routine performed in a private nightclub setting.
For more background on the suspension, see our previous blog post Air America Brainlessly Suspends Randi Rhodes.
