Life After Cable News: Dylan Ratigan Starting ‘Organic Farm Incubator’

Proof that there is life after cable news: former CNBC and MSNBC anchor Dylan Ratigan is starting a second act, and it involves organic hydroponic farms.

On a blog post on his website, Ratigan explains that after leaving MSNBC, he moved to San Diego county, CA, and worked on an organic, hydroponic farm. He decided to invest the money he earned from his TV shows and his book Greedy Bastards to ‘build a 30,000 square foot ‘farm incubator’ that can serve as the prototype for job-creating, water-saving, food-producing, veteran-led hydroponic organic greenhouses nationwide.

The goal is to create organic farm businesses nationwide, run by U.S. military veterans. Ratigan will be on ABC’s ‘The Chew” tomorrow and on “Martin Bashir” on MSNBC to talk about what his plans are, exactly.
