Clear Channel Knuckles Under on Madison's The Mic

As a lot of you probably know, Clear Channel announced some time back that they were going to take the very popular Air America station in Madison and convert it to an all-sports Fox Sports format as of January 1. There has been quite a lot of protest in Madison over this, including a funeral procession, a rally (hey - Tammy Baldwin - thanks for your support) and a petition effort against Clear Channel.

Astoundingly enough, the company has apparently decided that the format change was just causing them too much grief, and to leave The Mic alone in its current format.

Congratulations to Madison (Says Steve who is not in a market big enough to currently have Air America except on the web).
