Rick Sanchez Readies New Personal Website, RickSanchezTV.com

By now you know that former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez has resurfaced on Twitter, and you may have seen yesterday that his “friends” have launched a new web site defending him, according to Business Insider. The site’s creators say that “Friends of Rick Sanchez” is a website devoted to set the record straight on who Sanchez really is — despite what he said on the radio.

But WebNewser stumbled upon Sanchez’s actual new home on the web, RickSanchezTV.com, which was registered on October 20, 2010 — 20 days after Sanchez was fired from CNN.

Right now the site is pretty bare bones, with “Schedule” and “Contact Info” tabs that are not yet functional, as well as a direct link to Sanchez’s Twitter feed, which he has since renamed @RickSanchezTV.

The schedule may not be active yet on his site, but we know of at least one thing Sanchez has on tap in 2011:

In a move to possibly gain attention or sympathy or understanding or all of the above, Sanchez has scheduled an event — that he calls a “public dialogue” in New York City with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

“I look forward to addressing any and all questions and concerns of the Jewish community,” Sanchez said in the event’s press release.
