Skip to comments.Alert the (Bill) Press: Nova-M goes under (Air America founder suicide attempt; Rhodes off the air)
Posted on 02/17/2009 5:06:32 PM PST by tlb
Libtalk network Nova M Radio has been shut down, according to the attorney for Randi Rhodes, Robert V Gaulin of New York. Moments ago, Gaulin sent this letter to your Radio Equalizer:
Randi Rhodes on-air home for less than a year will shut its doors. In an email message of February 17th from counsel for Nova M Radio, Inc. to Randis entertainment attorney, Robert V. Gaulin, the company is said to have been advised to file for bankruptcy protection next week. All payroll deposits were reversed on Tuesday, leaving Novas employees unpaid for the past two weeks.
On Sunday, Nova received a letter from Mr. Gaulin asserting that the contract with Ms. Rhodes was terminated due to material breaches and other reasons. Ms. Rhodes had not broadcast for over a week prior to this time, a situation which was diplomatically referred to as a problem that was solely within Novas control to solve. A few days earlier, Sheldon Drobny, founder of Nova M, and a co-founder of Air America Radio, attempted suicide and is hospitalized in Chicago.

I’ve always had a hard time with the name “Air America” don’t those liberal idiots realize it’s the CIA’s air force?
Rhodes flagship WJNO in West Palm Beach has temporarily substituted Sean Hannity’s program in the afternoon slot due to the absence of her program.
Oh what a shame.
Well, I can see the NYT under fairness doctrine?
They do NOT want to go there.
Air America founder tries suicide? Hope it is successful
This is too, too funny. Everyone should watch the YouTube exchange between the very pretty and smart Megyn Kelly and and the looney Bill Press. A link is within the article...priceless.
How the hell could anyone tell she was off? Does anyone listen to her show?
Where is Stabenow’s cheatin’ husband? The Liberals must force conservative talk radio to be silent in the pursuit of failure.
The Leftist playbook is always the same, trade the functioning for the disfunctional...the profitable for the bankrupt and the moral for the immoral.
Every program, every city and every Democratic position always punishes the taxpayer, the innovator and the thrifty...using taxpayer funds to “mop-up” for those who never really contribute, ethically or financially.
I could always phone the Liberal icon’s clinic, Kevorkian, to make sure the deal is closed.

It's called "spreading the misery"...
I try to catch her on bad RAT days. It's usually very little information and a whole lot of complaining - every single day.
Poor man. It is so unfair that conservative talk radio dominates the airwaves and won’t let liberal talk radio gain a foothold. Its a cryin shame I tell ya! Somebody needs to do something. C’omeon Zero, give em a few bil.
If leftist suckers fell for Obambi, they should easily fall for that one.
So I’m traveling in sw florida this week for work and on sunday afternoon I was driving thru the everglades desperate for any radio to listen to and landed on a local air america station . At every commercial break there would be one or two ads...then three or four minutes of music...all unsold ad time. Most of the ads they did run were for progressive insurance...obviously ad buys based on progressive’s lefty ceo’s politics, not based on a business decision...I as probably one of about ten people listening (the other nine called in to talk about how wonderful the obamassiah is...)
The libs at LiberalTalkRadio.blogspot.com are pooh-poohing Brian’s report...
>>4. So, if Nova M is totally and completely kaput and the Malloy show has been outright cancelled, then that’s news to Mike and Kathy Malloy. The show should go on as scheduled tonight.
>>5. Radio & Records, a more reliable source for industry news than right-wing blogs run by crazy people(sic), cites Nova M’s general manager, Eric Reinert, who said that Nova M is no longer an entity and that a new company called On Second Thought LLC has been formed and is moving forward. Reinart also confirmed that Rhodes is officially out. The new network will continue to offer Mike Malloy, Phoenix host Mike Newcomb and a new show from Nancy Skinner, who had been filling in for Rhodes.
6. Oh, and that lawsuit brought against Nova M by former CEO John Manzo? Reinart wouldn’t comment on that. The 16-page complaint alleges, among other things, that the syndicator breached Manzo’s contract, failed to pay state and federal taxes on his behalf, defamed his character and cast him in a false light.
LOL. What a freeking disaster. Which describes anything and everythihg the commies put their hands on.
