Jane Pratt Gets Sirius

Jane Pratt, founder of women's magazines Sassy and Jane, is set to launch a weekly radio show on Sirius satellite radio this fall. Called "Jane Radio," the three-hour live program will feature everything from current events and discussions on popular music to a segment called "Jane Needs Help" in which Pratt solicits the advice of her listeners.

According to the press release, Pratt wants this show to be like a girlfriend dish session, in which women can speak candidly as though no men are listening. She immediately goes on to say, however, that she hopes men will be listening — and will learn a thing or two.

I had a near-religious devotion to Sassy, and I still have fond memories of the early issues of Jane so I'll probably tune in for Pratt's show. For more details,

I'm of the belief that Jane helped to change the face of women's publications — at least for a while. In particular, I think the magazine introduced a smart, hip, and funny voice that had not previously been heard in the mainstream magazine world.

Hopefully, Pratt will add this voice to the lineup of what Sirius calls its "women's programming," which apparently includes shows by Barbara Walters, Candace Bushnell, and ... Richard Simmons.

Side note: Pop informed me today that Pratt recently claimed to have once slept with Drew Barrymore. So, there's that.

Actually, the new JANE is going back to being decent. I remember there was a while when they decided to bleep out profanities so that "readers could keep the mag out on their coffee tables when their moms came over." I was like, "Who cares if mom sees the f word?" In the last issue (not the Avril cover one...gross), they actually brought the f-word back and I was like, "Gasp!!!" So perhaps new editor Brendan Holley is bringing us back to the good old days...the updated good old days? She actually had an interesting editor's letter in the Drew Barrymore cover about women in Africa. Super. How old is Jane's daughter, Charlotte, now? I remember when she was pregs!
