UnBoomed: New Media split finally covered by Old Media

Two major news outlets run full stories on the Congdon-Baron split at Rocketboom today, demonstrating that this story is more than blogger gossip.

The Washington Post talks to founding producer Andrew Baron:

He declined to discuss the business ownership, saying: "I'm not actually concerned about that. I'm concerned about stabilizing the show and the business so we can get back on track. . . . I wish her well."

This is Baron's 51/49 split with host Amanda Congdon, which Baron says is dissolved and Congdon insists still stands. (Don't worry, the deal's in a signed contract for their lawyers to pick over.)

Meanwhile, BusinessWeek says Congdon's hiring a lawyer, and that she has offers coming in. Baron's quoted, saying he plans to continue the show without her.
