    Rush Limbaugh Off Air in Philadelphia
    byscottiex2

    Limbaugh has been a mainstay on the CBS owned station in Philadelphia for at least 20 years.
    Today he was replaced by Michael Smerconish with the intro "forget the anger, reason is back".
    I called the station manager to confirm that it was in fact a permanent and to congratulate him on his public service.

    This is one station, but it is a major market that is replacing hate speech one
    program at a time. Hannity was dropped last year.

    Of course it is all about money and proof that the boycott worked.

    Not really........ LOL. Liberals lie all the time. You have to check EVERYTHING they claim as a win.

    It took me 15 seconds to find this:

    http://radioinsight.com/blog/headlin...-philadelphia/

    Premiere recently notified WPHT they will be syndicating Rush Limbaugh on a new station in Philadelphia. As a result, we are pleased to be able to now showcase Michael, who is a well-known and acclaimed broadcaster in the market, in this new time period.”
    So Premier is MOVING his show to another station IN PHILADELPHIA. That's what they consider a "win", claiming that the boycott "worked".

    1. Hats off to the lucky people of Philly

    We need to establish Rush free zones all over the country.

    32. That was amazing! It's like a tribute to hatred placing this vile person

    in the hall of fame. I see nothing of fame about him than as a loud mouthed asshole full of hatred.
    Speaking of "HATRED"....

    3. Hometown Boy Makes Good. Michael Smerconish is a step up, but

    keep in mind that he supports the same agenda. That the Big Fat Liar, is gone from a major market is indeed good news.

    6. I hope that radio station has good security
    A lot of crazy people with guns are going to be pissed off about this.
    ) Right. They'll be so PISSED OFF that they will simply turn the dial to the new station.

    He went to FM. That seems to be a trend. I think I remember hearing that the quality of satellite radio was so far beyond conventional AM that the move of talk to FM was the only way to compete.

    And Dummies are notoriously stupid. They don't check anything.

    The station (1210 AM) is going to some "let's use local talk talent" format. They got rid of Hannity and now Rush. However, Hanninty and Rush are now on a Philly FM station 106.9. When word gets out, 1210 will be in a death spiral.

    The guy replacing rush (Michael Smerconish) is such a RINO that even RINOs look at him and think "damn, that guy is a serious RINO". He blows. And he does not have a voice for radio. I have no idea how he got on there.

    Bye 1210. Don't know why you threw yourself on your sword like that but it's going to hurt, that's for sure.
    Be Not Afraid.

    It works if you've got really good local talent. One of our local stations here did it quite successfully (though they weren't carrying EIB before, either; their "biggie" was Liddy). But if your local talent sucks, then it's not going to work.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    They have one local guy that is very good. Dom Giordano. Subs nationally sometimes.

    Used to do nights. They moved him to mornings. Absolutely not a good time slot for him.

    Here in this part of MI, Rush is on 94.9 out of Benton Harbor. However I get 890AM WLS in better than I do the FM station.


    Even Colin Cowherd on ESPN has commented that talk radio is and should be moving to FM, the ESPN station out of Holland/Grand Rapids is on the FM bad. The signal is stronger and reaches further than AM stations do, plus it doesn't have the static problems that AM does
