Limbaugh has been a mainstay on the CBS owned station in Philadelphia for at least 20 years. Today he was replaced by Michael Smerconish with the intro "forget the anger, reason is back". I called the station manager to confirm that it was in fact a permanent and to congratulate him on his public service. This is one station, but it is a major market that is replacing hate speech one program at a time. Hannity was dropped last year. Of course it is all about money and proof that the boycott worked.

I don't think it will matter. They will still earn a decent income. Probably more than liberal talk show hosts, nationwide, if one wanted to analyze. Commentators are paid to give their opinion. Where they lose business, if they are successful, they will gain somewhere else.

Premiere told the CBS station, WPHT, that Limbaugh was moving to another station - not the other way around.

 I am thoroughly convinced more Libs listen to Rush than they'll admit....some are obsessed with him.

I can handle a little Rush, but sometimes I have to turn to another station because it gets old hearing the same thing for an hour or more.
