What the press is saying:
Libnet Nova M has been losing $100,000 a month, and files for liquidation.
Principal Anita Drobny says the business stress is what put her husband
Sheldon in the hospital with a breakdown. T-R-I reported his hospitalization
yesterday, as part of the Randi Rhodes saga. While today's Wall Street Journal
adds what looks like the missing link in the Randi Rhodes-Nova M breakup story -
that Randi believed her Nova M contract would cover some legal costs, but found
out it didn't. Anita Drobny isn't discussing such affairs, but Nova M is filing
for bankruptcy protection. The next new liberal-talk syndicator is On Second
Thought Radio Network, which will take on former Nova M personality Mike Malloy.
On Second Thought is a project of Dr. Mike Newcomb, who also worked with Nova M
at one point.
and here's the press release from THEM:

On Second Thought Radio Network
Continuing on the network will be Americas original truth-seeker Mike Malloy.
The Mike Malloy Show will continue to broadcast live Monday through Friday, from
9PM - Midnight (EST).
Truthseekers, Just a quick note from your humble and obedient (ha-ha) servant. I
am pleased to let you know the Malloy program continues. Same time, same
station, same Web-cast, same satellite availability. Nothing changes while
everything does, as my tai chi instructor says. Anyway, we're here and we'll
continue with the most intense, factual, hell-raising liberal talk in the
nation. Keep it lit.
- Mike Malloy
Drama, tragedy, and a mess. So now you know, Malloy stays on green 960, he's
going to be OK.
Randi? I have no clue.
We're going to possibly have a guest fill-in show next week. Working out the
details today and I'll let you know ASAP if/when it happens. Your feedback is
going to be very very important.
I have an idea. Let's see what happens.
