Clear Channel yanks the Mic

Madison's successful progressive radio station 92.1 FM The Mic will get a makeover after the new year when it becomes the new home of Fox Sports radio. It's surprising considering that its ratings have been good throughout most of the past two years.

It was revealed a few weeks back that a memo was circulated to ABC stations containing a list of 90 advertisers refusing to run their commercials during Air America programming. Companies like McDonald's, Levi's and Toys R Us advertise on Clear Channel stations too so it would make sense that the same policy is in place there. Read the full memo here.

The Mic also carried successful progressive talkers Ed Schultz, Stephanie Miller, and local shows in addition to carrying the fledgling Air America network.
