Is MIKE MALLOY about to return to the air on a new liberal talk network? ALL ACCESS hears talk that the former AIR AMERICA RADIO late-night host, fired earlier this FALL, is part of a new effort to do syndicated liberal talk by the co-founders of AIR AMERICA, SHELDON and ANITA DROBNY, along with PHOENIX-based host Dr. MIKE NEWCOMB, through their NOVA M RADIO operation.
The chatter says that MALLOY's return is slated for OCTOBER 30 9p-midnight (ET), initially on NOVA M's Talk KPHX-A/PHOENIX. The operation will reportedly include DEMOCRATIC PARTY fundraiser/strategist JOE TRIPPI and pollster JOHN ZOGBY (who will host a weekly show for the new network).
