Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Investors pursuing local Air America affiliate

The Business Journal has an article in this week's edition about Air America's owners visiting town seeking to acquire a station for the network.

Anita Drobny and her husband, Chicago venture capitalist Sheldon Drobny, were among the founders of Air America in 2003. They formed a company this year called Nova M to obtain radio stations that would carry the network. Previously, Air America has simply provided programming on stations owned by other companies.

Wisconsin is among the states they've targeted with Milwaukee being their first priority, the couple said in an interview. Anita Drobny met recently in Milwaukee with a group that includes members of the Milwaukee County Democratic Party.

"We believe very strongly that Wisconsin needs to have much more balanced information on the radio waves," Anita Drobny said.

In addition, a website has been set up advising visitors to stay tuned.
