New Liberal Radio Network Formed

Ya think this one is going to do any better than Airhead America?
Air America has filed for bankruptcy, but another liberal radio network appears poised to see if the concept can work if done with others in charge. Nova M Radio, Inc. based in Phoenix, Arizona officially announced the formation of its new progressive talk radio network, which will feature former Air America host Mike Malloy as one of its on-air personalities. The network is scheduled to debut October 30, just prior to the November elections. Anita Drobny and Sheldon Drobny, co-founders of the Air America Radio Network along with partner Dr. Mike Newcomb, CEO & Chairman of Nova M Radio, are the principals of the new network. Joe Trippi, former communications director for Howard Dean's failed White House run in 2004, joins Nova M Radio as a consultant. John Zogby, president and CEO of Zogby International, also joins as host of "The Pulse of the Nation," which will feature polls on hot topics of political, social and cultural interest.
I guess Zogby can't even pretend to be impartial with the "polls" anymore, can he?!
