Alex Bennett added to America Left XM 167

Discussion in 'SiriusXM News & Talk' started by livingfruitvirus, Feb 2, 2009.

  1. The subscriber appears to be the last priority for Sirius XM so they added Alex Bennett to the schedule without warning. A replay was on earlier tonight. No schedules have been updated for weekday showings.

    Alex Bennett is normally heard on Sirius Left from 9 AM to 12 PM weekdays.

    edit: This is now the weekday schedule

    5 AM Rachel Maddow
    6 AM Bill Press
    9 AM Stephanie Miller
    12 PM Ed Schultz
    3 PM Randi Rhodes
    6 PM Thom Hartmann (tape delayed)
    9 PM Mike Malloy
    12 AM Alex Bennett (tape delayed)
    3 AM Thom Hartmann (replay)

    At least he's on at midnight when I'll be asleep anyways. And why do we need two Thom Hartmann shows? I want to hear Ron Reagan's show or Lionel or something. It probably doesn't matter, I bet they'll eventually put Lynn Samuels on at 3am, which is a time I can easily avoid her also.

    That's smart - putting Maddow on at a time nobody will listen to her, giving an extra hour to the uber-lame Bill Press Show, axing the far superior Young Turks, and keeping Mark Maron and Sam Seder off the air.

    you know what's sad? that lineup looks SO MUCH BETTER than the sirius offering. even with bennett on there.

    as for rachel, if you're that upset about that, take it up with air america. THEY are the ones who cut her schedule down to accomodate television and moved her to the mornings.

    Much better than the Sirius lineup. I wish 146 had all three hours of Stephanie Miller and I'd much rather hear Thom Hartman than that insufferable bore Mark Thompson.

    move mark thompson to xm's black station, i believe it's called the power or something like that. he is a much better fit there than 146.

    I think he was originally on that channel, but he got fired, which is why he wound up on Sirius.

    Ugh. They should move him to Stars or Indie Talk.

    For clarification, the “he” I was referring to in my post above is Thompson, not Bennett.

    This is more good-old-radio-boy coddling of the ready-for-pasture Alex Bennett. He probably clamored for exposure on both systems and got it. What a waste.

    Anyway, Mark Thompson is far better than Bennett, he should take Bennett's slot. Both left channels should have Roland Martin, judging by his performance on CNN.

    The uncensored Turks were one of the best. Bring them back.

    That was a show I was really disappointed to see go. I think Ben moved on to another gig and only Cenk is left now. Too bad the Air America gig didn't work out for them.
