We spend much of this hour discussing the demise of The Mic, one of the last commercial stations committed to Progressive Talk/Liberal Talk in the US. What does this mean for the format? How can "Lib Talk" be made to be more attractive to broadcasters and advertisers? What role, if any, should noncommercial community radio have in keeping the format alive? Later, we touch on a new Alternative station on the air in Chattanooga, and an AM station in upstate NY is for sale, who might buy it? And what impact could the sale have on the station's programming and its commitment to full service to the community? It's all here on CTS.
