I have let too much time go by without noting that Ron Kuby’s show on Air America has been cancelled. AA says that they have a place for Ron, but no indication yet what it is.
I was a podcast subscriber and could not take a long road trip without downloading a few hours of Ron’s work. Kuby’s show had the same smart approach to current events that marked Rachel Maddow and Al Franken’s radio time. He combined that with call-ins from fans and unfans to make an entertaining, topical three hours.
Kuby is a thinking liberal, a Jayhawk radical turned Ivy Leaguer, turned criminal defense attorney, turned radio talk show host. He is one of the smartest people on radio and definitely top of the Air America lineup, which suffers from too many blowhards and empty headed radicals. I love the idea of Air America but if they can’t keep talent like Ron Kuby on the air they need to rethink what they are doing.
Best, Ron. Hope to hear more soon.
