Rush Limbaugh's Ratings Have Fallen 30% In The Last Six Months

This is worrying me.

Quote:
The just-released Arbitron report reveals that a lot less people are listening to right-wing talk radio.

With a lull in ratings since November, Rush Limbaugh had a 3.0 share of listeners for his radio time slot, which is a 33% slide from October and from last April, reports Crain's Business.

Meanwhile, The Sean Hannity Show was reported to be down 28% from its peak numbers in the fall.

Interestingly, numbers for Don Imus' Imus in the Morning were said to be up year over year.

Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates the shows, tells Crains they are not worried: Limbaugh and Hannity “continue to be No. 1 and No. 2."

Yeah, number 3, 4, and 5 don't matter.

Heywaitaminute, number 3, 4, and 5 are Savage, Beck, and Levin.

Delilah is the highest rated non-talk show, and she's number 8 or 9.

No lefties whatsoever in the top 10.

That hasn't changed.

Could that be because as a group, they are not nearly as desperate and angry?

How do you know Delilah isn't a "Lefty"?

If you want the other side of the coin you can always go online

Chicago's Progressive Talk

I like Coast to Coast but since their affiliates are being bought up by Murdoch, even they have gone wing nut with some opinions. Sad.

You mean that your homogenous left-wing nut only radio stations are actauly presenting more than one perspective??? How awful it must be for you to be exposed to ideas that differ from your own. Why I'll bet that doing so would be like being - oh, I don't know - "open-minded"???

No this show used to be just conspiracy theories and fun crap like ghost stories. The way it got started was Art Bell could not do another political show without throwing up and just decided to have a night of challenging anyone to prove to him (a conservative btw) there really were UFO's. The ratings went trough the roof and the rest is history.
Now that some affiliates have been bought up by right wing media there are tense forced sounding opinions thrown in about politics. If you had listened to the show for years as I have you would see it is pretty evident.
I also used to listen to a trucker show for years and the guy was blatantly right wing, but had other subject matter and you knew what you were getting.
When I'm listening to a fun type entertainment I do not wish to be propagandized by any faction.
