Anyway, in addition to/because of losing like 300% of its advertisers, the show is also having syndication issues:
Radio-Info.com reports that Premiere Networks, which syndicates the Rush Limbaugh show, told its affiliate radio stations that they are suspending national advertising for two weeks. Rush Limbaugh is normally provided to affiliates in exchange for running several minutes of national advertisements provided by Premiere each hour. These ads are called "barter spots." These spots are how Premiere makes its money off of Rush Limbaugh and other shows it syndicates.I can't wait for Limbaugh's shameful slink from the airwaves in disgrace and his eventual triumphant return.
But without explanation, Premiere has suspended these national advertisements for two weeks. Radio-Info.com calls the move "unusual." The development suggests that Rush Limbaugh's incessant sexist attacks on Sandra Fluke have caused severe damage to the show.
