Right Wing 'News/Talk' Radio In Major Decline - Large US Radio Distributor Drops Rush Limbaugh And Others ....
Toxic, aggressive Right Wing radio talk show formats appear to be on the decline in both the US and Canada ... good news for the vast majority of us.
"In what might be the biggest blow to Rush Limbaugh’s career as a radio personality as of yet, the second largest radio distributor in the country, Cumulus Media, is set to drop Limbaugh’s show from its airways at the end of the year.
But not just Limbaugh’s show—Cumulus Media will drop Sean Hannity’s show as well.
Politico is reporting that Cumulus Media has decided not to renew the contracts of either host, effectively removing both media personalities from 40 stations in major markets. [...]
The problem is, when you have a toxic host such as Rush Limbaugh, asking “top dollar” it's a little absurd. Advertisers have been abandoning his show in droves for a while now, and while his name still gets headlines—his antics have actually been blamed for a decrease in revenue."
