The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney

Air America's Finance VP Appears To Depart

Where's Sinohe?

Air America's Thankless Job, Receptionist's Odd Reaction



***EXCLUSIVE***


BY MICHELLE MALKIN AND BRIAN MALONEY


Other than fetching coffee for Janeane Garofalo, what do think is Air America's most miserable employment position?

Our pick: vice-president of finance.

Imagine having to send out the now-infamous email explaining why direct-deposits wouldn't be available on time? Or being forced to make excuses for the company's many screw-ups?

You're surely on the receiving end of a lot of misplaced abuse.

Recall this Radio Equalizer piece from August 8th:


It's bad enough the company is generating fresh bad publicity almost daily, over the diverted $875,000 in taxpayer funds intended for a Bronx-based community service organization.

Now, to make matters worse, an internal memo obtained by the Radio Equalizer indicates Air America Radio employees faced late paychecks just over a week ago.

They were apparently stunned to receive a last-minute notice sent at 5:09pm Thursday, July 28th, indicating direct deposits would not be made Friday, as expected.

Written by company Vice President/Finance Sinohe Terrero (this article confims Terrero's corporate role), it implied the payroll processing company was to blame:



We have been advised by ADP that Direct Deposit will probably not post until Monday. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cost (sic). If you have any questions please feel free to call me.

Sinohe Terrero

VP Finance

212-871-****
718-807-****



Somehow, Sinohe Terrero survived well over a year in this thankless role.

Young and eager to prove himself, Terrero had a role in HBO's "Left of the Dial" documentary, shown last year.

But where is he now? After hearing rumblings for weeks of an impending resignation, it now appears he's left the building.

Funny, the media spends so much time trying to "find" Evan Montvel-Cohen, yet they've probably never heard of Sinohe Terrero.

What does he know about Air America's troubled financial picture? Or concerning the Gloria Wise "loan" scheme? Does he know where the bodies are buried?

Could he frankly be too dangerous to be cut loose from the company? He's the proverbial man who knew too much.

Chief Operating Officer Carl Ginsburg feels "it is for the best" that Terrero departed, according to internal sources.

Two weeks ago, we reached him on his cell phone and asked if he was exiting the company. Seemingly caught off-guard, Terrero was polite, but gave a "no comment" response and said he'd need to call back later.

He never did, and subsequent emails went unanswered.

Since then, Terrero has still been occasionally seen in the building.

Today, a call to Air America's corporate offices yielded a peculiar response: a receptionist who seemed particularly uncomfortable when asked to be transferred to his extension.

She stuttered and stammered, with a long pause, then transferred us to his voicemail, which may have actually belonged to his cellphone.

Would you perhaps have better luck getting an answer about Sinohe (SIN-O-EEE) Terrero's whereabouts? If you wish, feel free to phone Air America's corporate offices on Monday at (212)-871-8100 and simply ask, "Where's Sinohe?"

Best of luck to Terrero, it's probably not easy to pass around resumes with Air America listed as your most recent employer, do you think?

  • phone Air America's corporate offices on Monday at (212)-871-8100 and simply ask, "Where's Sinohe?"

    Well, you could call during business hours and in a halting accented call-center voice ask for "Accounts Payable ... Sin-oh-eh, this is Verison (or ConEd or MCI) calling about their account.

    See how thay handle a collection call. You'll learn a lot.

    ... Wait - don't do that. It would be LYING.

    And AL FRANKEN is the only one who is allowed to LIE!

  • Wow! 5 postings now. Looks like Baloney is riding this "tide of pubic criticism" all the way to a Pulitzer.

    It's bad enough the company is generating...

    Now Baloney is quoting himself!! LOL. This is getting more and more pathetic by the day. Baloney's an unemployed nobody who is fast running out of ideas of how to keep this horse alive.

  • Attacking the messenger vs. attacking the message. Not a good way to debate things.

  • The message is dumb.

    By Blogger Dick Tuck, at 10 September, 2005 06:40  

  • Hey, Dick, did you read the New york Post yesterday?

    This was my favorite part:

    "September 9, 2005 -- Air America's claim that it is not under investigation as part of a city probe into an $875,000 loan from a Bronx Boys & Girls Club is dead wrong, sources told The Post yesterday."

    ha ha ha ha

    By Blogger Tom C, at 10 September, 2005 09:20  

  • ...sources told The Post yesterday.

    Again... who are these sources?
    Tom C, tells us that they are "perfectly good" sources.
    If they're so good, then why doesn't the NY Post identify these sources?
    Tom C, tells us that *he* knows who the it is, but he won't come out and name these sources either. Why?

    Because it is slimey journalistic dishonesty that is the norm from the NY Post. And some people are blind enough and/or stupid enough to play along.

  • "Hey, Dick, did you read the New york Post yesterday? "

    I try to avoid Sun Myung Moon's and Murdoch's media, and usually read reputable sources.

    But hey, Air America just added another station, added Thom Hartmann for a weekend show and is syndicating his daily show. They must be laughing all the way to the bank about Maloney's firing up the troops to make "prank phonecalls".

    I gave up on those when I was 10, and everyone knew the punchline for "is your refridgerator running?"

  • They must be laughing all the way to the bank about Maloney's firing up the troops to make "prank phonecalls".

    I wouldn't worry too much, dick tuck. There aren't very many troops on this blog to fire up. There's nobody here.. just the wind and tumbleweeds... which demonstrates how unsuccessful Baloney was as a radio host. And now as a wing-nut blogger. How much further he can sink? Only time will tell.

  • The Program Dir. at WHJJ in Providence, an Air America affiliate,
    says that the AAR "experiment is
    essentially over" as a former
    "Survivor" contestant takes over
    the Springer time slot--
    and Franken's slot will see changes
    in a few weeks as well.

    Which sources, Dickie?

    C-BS News?
    The New York Times?
    Indymedia?

    How many lies have they cranked out in the last year?

    Keep lying Dickie!

  • They added Duluth, Minnesota at the expense of Providence, Rhode Island.

    Talk about stupid moves.

    I didn't run away, old boy. I;m right here.

    LAUGHING at you!

  • Hmmm... Tom C's symptoms include incoherent ranting, an inability to respond to simple questions, and mindless cackling. Senility? Alzheimer's? Or perhaps giving it up over and over again for the GOP has finally taken its toll? (So that's what's wrong with all you brainless wing-nuts?)

    Whatever... there's nobody on this nobody blog anyhoo...

    By Blogger HeadHunter, at 11 September, 2005 20:26  

  • Whatever... there's nobody on this nobody blog anyhoo...
    More than on your three bogus blogs, anyway.
    If it's such a bogus story, and such a pointless blog, why do you bother hanging around to defend AAR?

    By Blogger SCSIwuzzy, at 12 September, 2005 14:07  

  • Perhaps because HOT Air America has been a lie from the time the "network" signed on! In terms of WHJJ, it's going to take a lot of work to restart that machine.

    And in terms of sources for mister Tuck, how about in terms of radio USA Radio Network News. Then again, you may not like them as they tend to tilt to the right.

  • More than on your three bogus blogs, anyway.

    Now now... I'm flattered that you've taken an interest but I don't do that sort of thing. You'll have much better luck offering your sore GOP ass to Baloney or Tom C.

  • I love naive people.

    Yeah my brother was in the middle of all of this, but he was decieved by others and nothing more then a slaved puppet.

    Sin left air america because of pressure from within our family once the now infamous email got out and his name started apearing all over the place.

    Even as the Evan Cohen situation hit the fan sin never kept anything back from anyone and always kept it real. Sin was never loyal to an individual, he was loyal to the Air America Project. He busted his rear end to make that company survive. When all of the execs where fired, quit or forced to resign. He was the only that tried to hold the company together as new boards, bosses and execs came in.

    We come from a poor family who is not connected in a high social class. The level of manipulating this situation required was for a well connected person to pull strings. For those insinuating that he had anything to do with anything. Please don't without having the slightest idea of all of the shit that went on behind the scene.

    You bloggers crack me up and you haven't even tickled the surface yet here you are pointing fingers at a dude who was a slave through out this. Working 15-18 hour days just to crack into corporate america.

    Does not matter, he is in a very good position at a unnamed company and the whole air america being on his resume didn't hurt him.

    At the end of the day when all is finished being said and done and all the indictments are handed down. Everyone will see the light and see that things are not as they appear.

    John M. Terrero

    PS: for those of you who think I am Sin's 2nd personality. If you have any clew of the drama, tickled more then the surface and not just insinuating based on the media. You know who I am

    By Blogger John Terrero, at 30 January, 2006 23:52  

  • second note: this is a defense for sin, not for air america. Him and I do not share the same political views and always clash if we speak politics for more then a split second

    By Blogger John Terrero, at 31 January, 2006 00:03  

  • "John Terrero" failed to mention that Sinohe Terrero worked as the Fiscal Director for the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club prior to his tenure at Air America. Interesting connection, isn't it...If you haven't already, see full investigative report at http://www.nyc.gov/html/doi/pdf/GW_Report.pdf
