As an aside to the article, Tom expressed his excitement at obtaining Nova M Radio as a client, and points out that this will give them an advantage over Air America, as their finances will be kept in check via quarterly reports with the SEC, allowing anyone to review their financial structure. Air America, as a privately-held company, is not subject to this.

This is gonna inflate Newcomb's head to the critical mass stage. The guy's totally arrogant and unlistenable. It would be better off for Mr. or "The Good Doctor" as he reminds us many, many times each morning, to stay behind the scenes and give up the mic to someone else.

Would love to see the AAR boards faces as Mike Malloy walks back in, but as director this time. Hehe....would be classic.
