Randi goes to Nova M Radio!
The Goddess of Radio has left Air America Radio:
The Nova M Radio Network is thrilled to announce the addition of “The Randi Rhodes Show” Randi Rhodes is the #1 rated progressive talk radio host in the nation.
Nova M CEO John Manzo says, “I just can’t stop smiling - Randi is simply the biggest and the best. Randi Rhodes and Mike Malloy under one roof – talk about TALENT!”
Randi Rhodes adds, “With Manzo at helm of Nova M, I am truly going to work for the best of the best. He is radio elite…and I am too <laughs>. I’m home, I’m home, I’m home!”
“The Randi Rhodes Show” will air live Mon-Fri from 3-6pm Eastern on The Nova M Radio Network.
Air America for its part has announced a filler show with celebrity co-hosts (link).
This is bad news for Air America. The highest rated show on their network has left because the management has little grasp of how to treat their talent. The fired Mike Malloy and Kent Jones, they lost Randi Rhodes and Al Franken, the only strong talent they have left is Rachel Maddow and David Bender.
This could be good news for progressive radio, spreading the talent across more stations.
I hope they will stream and podcast the Randi Rhodes Show so I and still listen.
