Liberal talk radio hits Hawaii

Recommended Posts

Several Hawaii stations have begun broadcasting Air America Radio programming, a mix of liberal-slanted shows that target President George W. Bush.

KUMU-AM 1500 in Honolulu, KAOI-AM 1110 on Maui and KQNG-AM 570 on Kauai, all owned by Maui-based Visionary Related Entertainment, began broadcasting select Air America shows last week.

KUMU plays Al Franken's "The O'Franken Factor" Monday through Friday from 6 to 9 a.m. and repeats it from 5 to 8 p.m. Franken has loudly voiced criticism of Bush and is the most visible of Air America's disc jockeys.

KUMU also will broadcast "The Randi Rhodes Show" from Air America weekdays from 8 to 11 p.m. and there is limited Air America programming on the weekends as well.

KAOI and KQNG will broadcast Franken's show from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, though they will not be carrying Rhodes' show.

Visionary President John Detz says they will wait to see how audiences respond to Air America programming before adding anymore of it. He added that the new programming will add balance to the stations, which carry both locally and nationally based shows.

"We do everything very carefully and to a large degree we've got some very successful programs that are running and we just are going to keep an eye out on how Air America is working," he said.

:P
