Local Left Still Struggles with Limbaugh Win
03/14/2012 25 Comments
By now the whole community knows that Rush Limbaugh will continue on KNCO, that is if they read the Union or listen to KNCO. My guess is that many who signed the failed petition do not even listen to KNCO.
“We’re going to keep Rush,” Station Manager Tom Fitzsimmons said Monday. “There have been some sponsors that have expressed concern about their ads being affiliated with the show, but we can schedule around the programming.”
I asked Tom Fitzsimmons for a list of the wobbly advertiser that wanted to avoid the three hours of Rush. He did not answer by e-mail. Regular listeners will note those that have shifted their spots.
While local supported KNCO with letter and e-mail to managements, our local lefty blogger cites a national poll posted at the Politico, as one might expect more Democrats reported that he should go than Republicans. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0312/73993.html
Here is a link to one response to the lefts attempt to get Rush of the air: http://youtu.be/29-xReVMTEY

I expect there will be more.
