Randi Rhodes update

Source: Robert V. Gaulin

Updated release from Robert V. Gaulin


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 Randi’s 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 Nova’s 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 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.

Mr. Gaulin indicated on Randi’s behalf that “We saw this coming, but are most saddened by the tragic news regarding Sheldon Drobny. Randi is devastated by the impact of these events upon her fiercely loyal audience, affiliates and sponsors. Discussions are already being conducted for Randi’s swift return to the air. Stay tuned…”

Thank you

Robert V. Gaulin

    Will you let know when Randi is back on the air? I don’t think anyone can replace her in any time slot and especially the 6-9 slot.

    Thanks, Carol

  2. i wish i did Carol, but unfortunately i don’t know anything more than you do. i’m guessing there’s a legal issue and that’s why she’s not talking about it. hope it gets resolved soon though and she finds a new home for the show. missing her in tennessee…

  3. PLEEEEEAAAASE BRING RANDI BACK! I can’t stand not hearing her every day! I have xm. No one can replace her. All they can do is fill her time slot, but its NOGOOD! We must have our daly dose of randi!

    I miss Randi too since I have been an avid listener of her show for the past 11 or 12 years since she was only on WJNO locally. No one can replace her, and I listen to no one else. Hope to hear Randi again soon!

    Hurry back ms Rhodes, All the Rush Limbaugh listeners are calling in voicing their harsh opinions. Your replacement is having trouble making her point.

    I miss Randi alot!! There is no one to replace her. I can’t believe that she doesn’t have a TV show. She should be on the air all the time. I love Her!!
    Come back soon Randi!

  8. This is the latest from Seattle’s progressive station AM1090 website:

    Our fight to bring The Randi Rhodes Show back to the Seattle airwaves continues and we are now seeing the beginning of some success in this effort. We have received word from sources in Randi’s camp that The Randi Rhodes Show will return to national syndication and that it will do so fairly soon. Rest assured, as soon as Randi is doing a daily radio show again… you will hear it right here, each night, on AM1090.

    Randi will be back on May 11th syndicated by Premier Radio Network. Read about it in the Huffington Post.
