Randi Rhodes is MIA from her show on NOVAM radio. Her show went dark last Wednesday and a replacement host has been doing the show since. The NOVA M network posted this note last week. “Technical problems ” have been the explanation officially stated as the reason for her absence. Of course her message board has lit up with speculation. Her replacement, Nancy Skinner is doing the best she can given the circumstances. Because of her sudden departure from AAR, there are ample scenarios to guess at.
Randi is not every one’s cup of tea. Personally, I believe that she is one of the most well-informed talk show hosts on the air, and I like her. The way things are in the media I welcome ALL left -o-center radio. I hope she gets back on the air soon, I miss her.
Anita Drobny from NOVAM posted the following on the “about Randi” page on the NOVAM site:
To all of Randi’s listeners;
You are all correct – I have not had the option to disclose what has been happening between Randi and Nova M…
You see, it’s in her contract that she has total control, but, after Wednesday night, I want you all to know that Nova M has done everything we can to get her back on the air.
All this is her choice; if she wants to tell you all what the issue is, then I hope she does, but I can’t according to her contract rules.
But I can tell you this I have wanted her back on the air. She’s an amazing talent and needs to be heard.
Thank you all for all of your support.
Randi now has to make her decisions as to what she must do with her career…
So whatever THAT means, Randi is STILL off the air, and the way it looks NOW, she MAY not be back. There’s STILL a bunch of speculatin’ about how or when this idiotic situation will resolve. I think she is being screwed over for remarks she made about oxi-rush and clear channel and they are trying to get her to apologize to lardass. She didn’t lie about lardman taking a hundred mil, and CC firing a couple thousand people. So here we go again, the saga of RandiRhodes and the fools who control radio. PATHETIC!!!!!
UPDATE X 2
Randi Rhodes left a statement at Green 960, You can check it out HERE. I GUESS it says that her relationship with NOVAM is over. We’ll keep our ear to the tracks and update as this idiotic situation developes. *sigh*
