Montel Williams Joins Air America

The liberal Rush Limbaugh? Or maybe we should put this one in the Whoppi Goldberg radio morning show category. Is it me or what? Just because you were on TV does that mean you can do good radio? We shall see.


Meet Air America's newest addition, Emmy award-winning host Montel Williams! His new Air America program is called “Montel Across America,” and it debuts April 6 airing weekdays from 9am-12pm EST on radio stations across the country. It will also be streamed live online at www.airamerica.com.

“Montel is a multi-media star and a familiar name to millions of people across the country,” said Bennett Zier, chief executive officer of Air America Media. “The addition of Montel to our talent line-up is an important step for the continued growth of Air America, as we look to distribute Montel’s show across America.”
“We’re extremely pleased to be able to add such a talented, passionate voice to our programming line-up,” added Bill Hess, senior vice president of programming for Air America Media. “This program will give Montel an outlet to do what he does best--reach people with his probing questions and insatiable quest for knowledge.”

“After being on television for more than 17 years, I’m looking forward to engaging in lively conversations and interacting with the American public,” said Williams. “Air America is providing me with the perfect environment to do this every day from New York City, as well as reporting from cities around the world as a travelling correspondent.”

Williams was the Emmy award-winning host and executive producer of “The Montel Williams Show” for 17 years, one of the longest running daytime talk shows in the history of television. In addition to his talk show and several acting appearance on hit television programs, Williams is an accomplished author, having published eight books with four New York Times best-sellers.
“Montel Across America” will originate from Air America’s studios in New York City. A new program, hosted by Lionel, who is currently heard in this timeslot, is in development.
