There's former CNN and CBS peeps behind the online net concerned with "energy and the environment," but it has several local connections as well -- such as, " Upcoming news programs include contributions from energy guru T. Boone Pickens."

And in other "TV" news, Sam just sent me a media release announcing that something called Shalom TV's finally found a Dallas home on Time Warner -- l'chaim! Says the media release, "It is an exciting development in the history of American television and the first time major cable companies are including a Jewish network in its national lineup of offerings."
