PHOENIX -- April 10, 2008: Randi Rhodes has signed with Nova M Radio Network. She'll be on the air from 3-6 p.m. ET beginning Monday.
"I just can't stop smiling," said Nova M CEO John Manzo. "Randi is simply the biggest and the best. Randi Rhodes and [night show host] Mike Malloy under one roof -- talk about talent!"
Air America Radio announced Thursday morning that Randi Rhodes had left the company after being suspended indefinitely for calling senator and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton a "f****ing whore" and saying the same about former Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro at an event sponsored by AAR affiliate KKGN (Green Radio 960)/San Francisco.
A joint statement from AAR Chairman Charlie Kireker and President Mark Green said, "Last week Air America suspended Randi Rhodes for abusive, obscene language at a recent public appearance in San Francisco which was sponsored by an Air American affililate station. Air America Media was informed last night by Ms. Rhodes that she has chosen to terminate her employment with the company. We wish her well and thank her for past services to Air America."
