Looking to make its mornings more competitive, Air America Radio is dropping �Morning Sedition� from its lineup and replacing it with a new reformatted morning block, beginning January 3.

�Air America Mornings� will consist of a pair of separate two-hour programs. Current �Morning Sedition� co-host Mark Riley will highlight the day�s top news stories and interview guests from 5-7 a.m., followed from 7-9 a.m. by �The Rachel Maddow Show,� which the network describes as �fast paced news and witty sound bites,� along with guest interviews."

It's not clear what will happen to Morning Sedition during December. Unfortunately I haven't listened to it for the last week, so I'm not up on current status.

The Future of Morning Sedition: Air America's Next Big Mistake?

WFMU's Beware of the Blog: Air America's Next Big Mistake?:
"It looks like Air America is about to lose one of their best on-air personalities, Marc Maron. There's been no official announcement, but on his show, Morning Sedition, Maron has repeatedly said he's probably on his way out. And yesterday he said it's unlikely he'll be part of the Morning Sedition air team (with radio veteran Mark Riley) after this month. And they're promoting their live remote at O'Neal's in the Upper West Side this Thursday as their 'last live appearance.'"

This is an indepth article discussing the future of Morning Sedition, definitely to be read!
