7.23.15 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



Name: Rush Limbaugh
Age: 64
Occupation: hillbilly heroin junkie
Last Seen: West Palm Beach, FL
Bee-otched For: REALLY losing out
Rush Limbaugh is truly a has-been.

The pill-popping, prostitute-fucking, lying pile of goo recently lost affiliates in Indianapolis and Boston and his owners, iHeartMedia threw him on flea-powered signals in those towns. His ratings in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago are abhorrent and most of his bigger affiliates are no longer in the top ten in the ratings. Plus, his audience is getting older and the millennials sure as hell don't listen to him.

But now, we might know what his lowest-rated station is in all of Michigan, or at least one of them.

The Nielsen ratings book was released for Kalamazoo yesterday and WKMI 1360 - once a ratings leader back in the day - is tanking with a dismal 1.2. The Townsquare-owned station even lost to Country 102.5, a low-watt translator station that only serves K'zoo.

Bear in mind that WKMI is also the home of Sean Hannity, Todd Schnitt and Jonathan Brandmeier.

No word on how cross-town rival WKZO 590 since owner Midwest Communications apparently did not subscribe to the book.

It's funny that in a lot of markets, the station with the most local talk beats Rush in the ratings. WKZO is live and local in the morning while WKMI is mostly syndicated. True, WKMI has a show called "Renk", who is a local talker, but I think there's issues as to why they're WKZO's bitch.

Oh, and sister station WJIM 1240 Lansing is also tanking in the ratings.

I have to wonder if more stations will be canning Rush soon, especially with his contract up for renewal next year. He sure isn't worth the reported $50 million yearly that iHeart is reportedly paying him, especially after the "slut" incident. He's 64, it's time for him to retire.

Time to retire to that 30-something chick who only married him for the money. But when that money's gone, in the great words of Ken Harrelson, "She gone!"
