Rush Limbaugh says it's not his fault his ratings have fallen

Rush Limbaugh insists it’s not his fault that ad revenue has dropped at his flagship WABC radio station — and if his boss keeps saying it is, Rush just may pack up his megadittoes and leave.

In New York, that would very likely take him to WOR, which would create the biggest shakeup in city talk radio since WOR scooped up Bob Grant after WABC fired him in 1995.

Limbaugh’s contract with WABC expires at the end of the year.

Lew Dickey, the CEO of WABC parent company Cumulus, has said Limbaugh’s controversial comments have diminished ad revenue for the past year — and the slump remains a “residual hangover” for the station.

I think we can ascertain from

I think we can ascertain from Glenn Beck's example that if Cumulus drops Rush, despite lower ratings, his following is strong enough that he will not go away, which is pretty unfortunate.


WABC is owned by Cumulous Media Network, which is a property of The Walt Disney Company.

... and if I recall doesn't Mr. Nystorm have some kind of " Deal " with the Disney Company.

Don't Give me Liberty, I'll get up and get it myself!

Aren't all the GOP shills' numbers down, except for O'Reilly?

Glad people finally realize what phonies these people are.

That's Fascinating

O'Reilly's numbers are actually up?!?!? I know he occasionally has (or at the very least "had") Rand on his show but it can't just be from that. I wonder what people see in O'Reilly that they like that differs from what they get from the rest of the MSM. O'Reilly comes off as such an obvious phony to me but I don't watch him so I don't know if there's something that people are tuning in for.

Good riddance!
