Malloy's program is in question as well.
Maloney received this from Randi Rhodes' attorney, Robert V Gaulin of New York:
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 Nova’s 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.
Drobny is a wealthy Chicago businessman, who with his wife Anita are well-known $upporters of progressive causes. In 2004, they helped co-found Air America Radio. After failing to reacquire control of Air America in 2006, the Drobnys founded Nova M Radio as a competitor to AAR in producing and syndicating progressive talk radio programs. The company distributes Mike Malloy and Randi Rhodes.
