Hmm, with the left dominating practically every medium, it's no wonder that left wing talk, doesn't sell.
Left wing talk doesn't sell because the left doesn't buy. Talk radio either needs to be funny, about sports, or an attempt to scare the Bejeezus out of people. You guys have the fear market cornered.

It's about time these idiots get the boot. They do nothing but race bait and ramble on about nothing of substance, just for the payday.

Good riddance.

there's always something bad to talk about. Spiking gas prices, inflation, food borne illness, north korea, and a lot more. This all seemed more like important news to the left 5 years ago than scare tactics. Does anybody remember what happened the last time gas prices spiked?????

I hope that the fat winbag's latest wife takes him to the cleaners and he ends up homeless. I realize that this is too much to wish for simply because of the brainwashed sheeple that listen to his BS. As I was repainting my cousin's house the guy remodeling the bathroom was listening to a small radio to Rush, Hannity, Beck etc.. then told me that his daughter was going to Kent State University and was hoping that the university did not make her become a liberal. I did not reply to him but had a good laugh out of it afterwards. The young lady after listening to her parent's contant right wing crap will probably rebel and become a hard core socialist wearing Che Guavara sweatshirts.

Cumulus sales are below the industry average. They own Huckabee, Savage, and Levin who get lower ratings than Rush and Hannity.

They've obviously run the numbers and think they can get more money with lower ratings by using in-house Talent.

Clear Channel owns enough stations that it will be no problem to find 40 stations to stick Hannity & Limbaugh on. Huckabee is going to get killed.

Example:

-Detroit radio ratings show that WJR (Cumulus), the station that carries Rush, has 2/3 the ratings of news station WWJ (CBS). WWJ is the number 3 station in Detroit and WJR is rated number 10.

Rush got his start on WABC, so he has been loyal to WABC and the other AM stations formerly owned by ABC, like WJR. But ABC sold those stations so there is no relationship there.

It is very easy to see Rush moving over to WWJ in Detroit.

-In New York, Clear Channel owns WOR. They are dying to have Rush and Hannity move over there.

-In Atlanta, Clear Channel used to run Rush on WGST, which never did much in the ratings because it has a crappy night signal. Even though WGST is owned by Clear Channel, they allowed Rush to move over to WSB, which is owned by Cox and is a highly-rated station.

In other words, CC owns stations practically everywhere ... so no biggie getting Rush onto a good station somewhere else.

More to this story ...

... Limbaugh and Cumulus Media, the company that distributes the influential conservative's talk-radio show in some 40 major markets, are headed for divorce, says Dylan Byers at Politico.

Citing "an industry source," Byers says that Cumulus — the No. 2 radio network in the U.S., behind Clear Channel — won't renew either the contract of Limbaugh or fellow conservative talker Sean Hannity at the end of the year. This is "a major shakeup for the radio industry," Byers adds, and it's hard to argue with that. Limbaugh and Hannity have the biggest and second-biggest talk radio shows, respectively, in the country. By a lot.

That also makes Limbaugh and Hannity very expensive, and this reported move by Cumulus to dump the two stars is about money. The two radio talkers are represented by Premiere Networks, a Clear Channel division, and Premiere reportedly wants more money than Cumulus thinks Limbaugh and Hannity are worth. Cumulus declined to comment on the rumors.

Limbaugh and Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey have been effectively negotiating in public since May, when Limbaugh threatened to leave Cumulus because Dickey had blamed Limbaugh's 2012 on-air insults of Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke for driving advertisers away and costing Cumulus millions of dollars. Now, Limbaugh critics are calling this apparent breakdown in negotiations a win for the post-Fluke boycott.

If Politico's report is true, "Limbaugh's contentious and seemingly inevitable divorce from Cumulus Media and WABC has moved another step closer to reality," says David Hinckley at the New York Daily News. But that doesn't mean that Cumulus is dumping Limbaugh. "New York radio observers have been expecting for the past year that Limbaugh and probably Hannity would leave WABC, which is owned by Cumulus, for rival WOR," recently purchased by Clear Channel.

That's an important distinction, says Hinckley. And if Limbaugh goes to Clear Channel, it's not like he'll be off the airwaves. His legions of fans would just have to change the presets on their radios.

And Cumulus wouldn't drop conservative talk radio altogether — it would just switch personalities, says Byers. In recent weeks, "Cumulus has been quietly reaching out to radio talent agents and political insiders about new local and regional station hosts to fill some of the airtime that will be left vacant by Limbaugh and Hannity," he says. "Cumulus is also expected to move some of its existing talent — which includes Mike Huckabee, Mark Levin, and Michael Savage — into one of the slots."

"Cumulus has already tried to position Huckabee as a 'safe' alternative to Limbaugh," says Adam Martin at New York: "A conservative commentator who wouldn't call people 'sluts' on air." Huckabee doesn't have a huge following, according to Talkers magazine's most recent analysis, but Savage and Levin do.

Readers should take Politico's entire report with a healthy grain of salt, says Radio Ink. "A story like this always seems to pop up around the quarterly earnings call," and it's most likely a negotiating tactic as Cumulus and Premier haggle over a price. For what it's worth, "a source tells Radio Ink nothing has been decided and a deal could even be worked out in the next month or so."

Maybe it will. Maybe it won't. But my guess is that Limbaugh and Hannity have the upper hand. If Premiere asks too high a price from Cumulus, Clear Channel can't really then pay Limbaugh and Hannity less than its subsidiary was demanding. But even if neither Clear Channel nor Cumulus are willing to pay up, Limbaugh has a large fan base that would follow him to satellite radio or the internet. Glenn Beck seems to be making a tidy sum on his own.

Thanks Rush. You becoming a topic on topix let's me read nearly an entire 40 posts with only a smidgen about the liar in chief, Hussein baraq o bamah. See there, the thing trashing up the once capital of the USA, the white house, causes me to post something about it, the thing in the white house, on a topic site supposed to be maligning Rush and Sean and instead I start telling the truth on the SIC, socialist in chief. Sorry moderator. I did mention rush twice, now three times on this post. Y'all have a blue day, blue staters. By the way, when the USA does in fact balkanize into the USA and USSA, are you Ohioans going with the blues or will you join up with us real Americans like Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia. Thank GOD for the great divider, Hussein baraq o bamah.
