Do-Over

Brian Maloney reports that Sheldon and Anita Drobny, co-founders of the now-bankrupt Air America Radio Network, have decided to give liberal talk radio another go:

Less than two weeks after their last- ditch proposal to purchase Air America Radio and avert a bankruptcy was rejected by its management, Sheldon and Anita Drobny have instead decided to launch a rival, Franken- free liberal talk network. […]
Backing them is Dr Mike Newcomb, a Phoenix- area talk host who has been named CEO of their company, Nova M Radio LLC.
Sheldon Drobny, the eccentric Democrat Party fundraiser, Huffington Post blogger and investor with known LaRouchian sympathies, even has his first talk hosts hired and ready to go: Deaniac frat- boy Joe Trippi, as well as pollster John Zogby. From Air America, they’re bringing over former evening host Mike Malloy.

Mark Finkelstein has posted the press release.
