Limbaugh losing stations?
Apparently WBEC in Pittsfield....a 1,000 watt station licensed by an individual owner has decided to stop carrying Rush Limbaugh's show. (The AM station doesn't even have it's own website, instead piggbacking on their FM's webpage.))
At the same time WXKS in Boston, WHYN in Springfield, WTAG in Worcester, WXTK on the Cape, WGIR in Manchester have ALL decided to KEEP AIRING Rush's show.
One single (small) station decides to drop Limbaugh and it's a big New England story? It was on Boston.com's first page, the front business page of the Globe and on the local TV news as well.)
Can we keep some perspective on this?
