Breaking News update at bottom of article 

Air America released the following statement on its website:

STATEMENT OF CHARLIE KIREKER, CHAIR & MARK GREEN, PRESIDENT, FOR AIR AMERICA MEDIA
By Tim Einenkel

Last week Air America suspended Randi Rhodes for abusive, obscene language at a recent public appearance in San Francisco which was sponsored by an Air America affiliate station.

Air America Media was informed last night by Ms. Rhodes that she has chosen to terminate her employment with the company.

We wish her well and thank her for past services to Air America. We will soon announce exciting new talent and programming that will accelerate Air America’s growth in the future.

Rhodes had been suspended from broadcasting for making remarks like these, reported by RawStory:

""What a prostitute Geraldine Ferraro is! She's such a f*cking prostitute!" Rhodes remarked. "Hillary is a big f*cking prostitute, too" to a mixed audience reaction. "You know why she's a big f*cking prostitute? Because her deal is always, 'Read the fine print, a**hole!'

 

A radio trade website , radioandrecords.com, reports

John Scott, PD of Clear Channel talk KKGN/San Francisco says, "it will be our pleasure to announce the return of Randi Rhodes to the Green 960 family."

Randi's a tough gal. She'll land on her feet.

The comments after the Air America are mixed. Some say they'll stop listening because she's gone. Others say good riddance.
