A second radio station drops Rush Limbaugh’s Hate Show


Another one bites the dust..

A second radio station has dropped Rush Limbaugh’s Hate Show. It’s WBEC 95.9FM/1420AM out of Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Their statement is worth a read:

A commercial radio station in Pittsfield, Massachusetts _ 96.9 [sic] FM, WBEC – says it is dropping the Rush Limbaugh show in the wake of Limbaugh’s comments on contraception last week. […]

WBEC’s General Manager Peter Barry says his station hadn’t yet lost any local advertisers as a result of Rush’s comments, and no more than a handful of callers had voiced complaints. But he says over the years he and station staff have grown increasingly uncomfortable with Limbaugh’s rhetoric.

“The nature of Rush’s programming has always presented challenges for us and he’s always pushed the envelope. But this time he’s taken it too far.”

You get the impression that some of these stations are just looking for a reason to lose Limbaugh, don’t you?
