"Conservative dominance of political opinion radio, then, has both demand-side and supply-side explanations. On the demand side, conservatives’ greater distrust of mainstream media and greater interest in black and white narratives, and the niche talk alternatives for African American and Hispanic audiences help us to understand why conservative audiences might be larger than liberal audiences. Meanwhile, on the supply side, the early success of Rush Limbaugh, spurred executives — prone to build on financially successful models — to develop more programs in this vein. The format is inexpensive."

Clear Channel boss 'delighted' to have Limbaugh - CBS news report 03.27.12. [We think they are trying to put a positive spin on a very deteriorating situation in order to get advertisers to come back.]
It's been reported by ThinkProgress.org that 141 advertisers plus a few radio stations have pulled all their advertising on Rush's program.

Press release: NOW Calls for Clear Channel to Pull the Plug on Limbaugh - Statement of NOW President Terry O'Neill.
We are informed that Newt Gingrich's SuperPac "Winning our Future" listed as one of Rush's sponsors below, is buying up more ad time on Rush's program to replace advertising he has lost. Also a lot of PSAs are taking Rush's vacant ad slots but at least they don't pay him anything and aren't sponsors of Rush's program.
We contacted Sen. Carl Levin's office on 03.08.12 because he expressed his opinion as Chair of Armed Services that AFN should not run Rush's program anymore. But that's as far as his office or Congress is going to get involved. So we recommend you not bother to contact any of your elected officials on this issue.
