Air America and SMU?

Maybe I wasn't paying attention, but I had no idea that the flagship for SMU basketball, WXEB, is an Air America affiliate.

Wanna hear the first SMU basketball game of the Matt Doherty era? Wanna listen to Highland Park’s football team defend its state championship? Then you better start tuning to the radio station that brings you Jerry Springer in the mornings, Al Franken in the afternoons and a format catering to Texas’ jet set. What is essentially Air America Radio, but is being marketed in Dallas as “Texas Progressive Radio,” KXEB-AM (910) is about to become a major player in local sports radio, especially among the most famous and fortunate of fans. The station, which already carries FC Dallas soccer games, will begin airing HP Scots football with the game against Bishop Lynch on September 15 and will broadcast Doherty’s first game as Mustangs head hoops coach in early November.
