A Change at the Top for Chesapeake Energy?

The guest on this week's nationally syndicated Motley Fool Money radio show is corporate governance expert Nell Minow. It's been an interesting 2012 for Chesapeake Energy CEO Aubrey McClendon. Between recent revelations that he was running a secret hedge fund (in addition to his job at Chesapeake) and shares falling nearly 40% over the past three months, McClendon has come under pressure from investors. In this segment, Minow shares why she believes McClendon will not be occupying the CEO's office for much longer.

Despite Chesapeake Energy's stock falling, the shares continue to pay a quarterly dividend.
