Despite Limbaugh’s assertions that everything is fine, current events suggest otherwise.
Advertisers continue to issue public statements confirming they will not run ads during Limbaugh’s show. In the past two weeks, Proactiv, Papa John’s Pizza, Kohler, Fisher Nuts, and Arby’s are among some of the advertisers to issue statements to this effect.
Limbaugh, who hired a crisis manager last month, recently took to Twitter (@RushLimbaugh) and attacked an advertiser by name for excluding ads from his show.
Earlier this week, it was announced that the popular Philadelphia station WPHT currently carrying Limbaugh’s show will replace it with a local talker. Limbaugh is expected to be relegated to a relatively small station located just outside Philadelphia, but in another state.
