4.14.15 Bee-otch of the Day: Rush Limbaugh

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.



Name: Rush Limbaugh
Age: 64
Occupation: right-winged bullshitter
Last Seen: West Palm Beach, FL
Bee-otched For: getting the boot in Indy
Liberals in Indiana might be still fuming over the state's anti-gay laws recently approved by Gov. Mike Pence, but the good news is that as of July 3rd, the state's top talk station will be dropping some 300 lbs.

WIBC 93.1 Indianapolis announced yesterday that they will be dropping The Rush Limbaugh Show because they couldn't come to terms with a new contract with his syndicator, Premiere Radio Networks.

"Emmis Communications and Premiere Networks announced today a decision to end their partnership in Indianapolis. As a result, WIBC 93.1 FM, Indianapolis’ News/Talk station, will not renew its contract to air The Rush Limbaugh Show," said station brass in a statement. "WIBC has a strong line-up of live and local personalities delivering great radio, and we will continue to be Indianapolis’ home for listeners with a passion for conservative values and principles."

WIBC carries mostly local talkers, but they also carry syndicated hosts such as George Noory and Tea Party skank Dana Loesch. They are Indy's third-highest-rated radio station with a 6.6 and the top talker. The market does have one other talk station, "Freedom 95" (950 WXLW Indianapolis and 95.9 WFDM Franklin), which might be a perfect fit for Rush. However, the AM's nighttime signal sucks (36 watts) and their FM signal only kisses Indy's south side. Then again, their daytime signal is just fine with 5,000 watts (even though WIBC's former home at 1070 - now sports WFNI "The Fan" - is 50KW daytime).

OK, I don't want to give the conservative radio station owners any ideas, but sadly, that could end up being Rush's new home. Even better, Freedom 95 - despite carrying Glenn Beck, Dave Ramsey and Sean Hannity - has a big, fat zero in the ratings.

Even with a 6.6 in the ratings, methinks that WIBC just couldn't sell the big, fat pill-popping woman hater to advertisers. Hell, I have a friend in Traverse City who told me that WTCM's spot load during Rush only consists of the casinos (who'll advertise during ANYTHING) and PSAs. If you advertise during Rush, it's sending a message to your listeners that you support his bigotry and stupidity. It's why so many of them jumped ship when he called law student Sandra Fluke a "slut" on his show. Since conservatism in America is anything but cool these days, plus the fact that Rush is 64, anybody who advertises on his show is, well, stupid.

However, I think there's a small pizza joint near South Bend called "Memories" that might want to advertise. Does WIBC's signal go that far?
