Skip to comments.RUSH OUT AT WBAP?

If KLIF is not making room for Huckabee from 11-2 than he'll be over in RUSH's time slot at WBAP soon. Thank you Dickey Bros. I hope you enjoy eating your own cooking 'cause it is going to stink in Dallas.
Thank God for the internet.
I am still upset that Savage is no longer on KLIF
I guess they were tired of making money.
Rush changes stations from time to time.It just happened in Boston recently.A major market like Dallas won’t go uncovered....*far* too much money to be lost in such a scenario.
Stations come and go all the time, as do advertisers, people are just focused on it now because of the left’s distortion of an alleged destruction of Limbaugh.
There was an article in RadioInk this week that quoted John Dickey as stating Rush and Hannity are both trending down. He was enthusiastic about Huck being syndicated.
Look for a few Cumulus Media stations to make the switch. But....I’ll bet it won’t be for long.
Huck is the “Mike Douglas” of radio. Pure vanilla with a lingering aftertaste.
KFSO San Francisco dropped Rush for purely financial reasons.
I have been streaming 77 WABC for months. Only do WBAP when I want the extra hour of Redeye!!
Did that happen recently? If so it could have been partially (or entirely) motivated by politics (boycotts,etc).You'd expect that in a people's republic like San Francisco.Or,given that he has a station in Oakland,maybe two stations were one too many in such a people's republic...even a large one.
Really? So they couldn’t afford to pay for his show anymore??? That says more about them. Conservative talk does just fine in the Bay Area. Rush in on 910 now and kicking the snot out of JD Hayworth. I like JD but he is not getting RUsh’s ratings
I have trouble streaming WABC on my cell phone...lots of dropouts.I think I found a station in California that's more dependable.
Well if they cut Rush here I will have to catch up on some reading. Now where did those back issues of the phone book go. Got to be ready you know.
This happened pre-boycott. The day he was dropped (a few months ago) Brian Sussman read the announcement from the suits stating that Rush had asked for more money and KSFO declined. Yes, 910 does broadcast Rush and I'm not surprised they are kicking butt. Also KSFO dropped Officer Vic from the lineup and picked up Melanie Morgan. Not sure I liked that move either.
Small hometown stations need to be worried. The internet will have the same effect on them as it has on their brothers the newspaper.
Almost time for Dennis Prager here in La-La Land.
Get iheartradio for your phone and there is a Newe Orleans station on there called “Rush Radio’ if you can put up with the local N O news and traffic it also has beck before and hannity after.
The Dickey Brothers own WABC as well as WBAP. ijs
If WBAP cuts Rush, they will lose the majority of their listening audience. Seems there are a large number of news media outlets inflicting mortal wounds on their operations. It appears to me we no longer live in “the land of the free and home of the brave”.
I like Huckabee. But I won’t listen to him instead of Rush. Rush is brilliant.
I don’t have cable or a digital box on my TV. I use my TV to watch old movies. I am a radio guy. I listen to WBAP 4-6 hours a day. I can assure you that WBAP will be dead to me if they drop Rush.
About the only thing we watch on TV are old westerns and our library of movies. We listen to Rush and Mark Levin. That’s it. Used to listen to KLIF some but not in a couple of years. The people of this country have thrown away traditional values and freedoms for what they perceive to be security and gifts from their government. They are getting tyranny. What in the hell has happened?
I’m not following the Huckabee details...that said, what info is out there that causes a rational person to think WBAP would drop Rush for Huck?
I don’t see it.
If another station doesn’t, hasn’t, won’t...whatever...put Huck in the Rush timeslot, that translates to it’s going to cause WBAP to drop Rush and put Huck there?
That outcome is so crazy, I won’t believe that until it happens.
Sombody said that KMBZ in Kansas City was looking to dump Rush! If that happens then I bet he ends up at 710 KCMO.
Got nothing to do but generate unfounded gossip, do ya?
Cumulus wants to save money, ratings don’t matter I guess.
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”
Seriously, if I had won that MegaMillions I’d own KFCD 990AM by now, I’d have David Gold as programming director, lol. We’d be “Freedom Club Dallas Radio”. heh.
JD Hayworth is gone now.
Yeah, I’m gonna RUSH right back to WBAP to listen to huckleberry...... sarc/
What makes you think that?
Before you go assigning the Alinksy label on other people, how about some evidence that WBAP is dropping Rush.
“I like Huckabee. But I wont listen to him instead of Rush. Rush is brilliant.”
Huckabee is Medved lite! yuchhhhhh
Hey GS, I use several radio apps on my phone. If one has problems I switch to another. Maybe you can find a couple of additional apps and set them up so you can switch when your show drops. I have four lined up in order of variety and reliability. Good luck...
Not at KSFO He was on this week
I’m asking a question based on media reports about changes that are being touted by Cumulus and the Dickey Brothers as they tout Huckabee. I’ll assign the Alinsky label when I see his tactics being used by those who would chose to post on this forum.
The talk all over the business is the Left is attempting to use Huckabee to take Rush out. It won’t work, but that’s the plan. The network running Huckabee is deliberately putting Huckabee toe-to-toe with Rush to dilute his influence and bring down his ratings. It shows who Huckabee really is that he’s allowing it.
You didnt mention any reports. You just threw out speculation to whip up a frenzy without any proof. You might want to be careful about calling people radicals when you do that type of thing.
A detroit station quit doing conservative talk radio a few years back and went to all sports all the tiem...Rush was immediately picked up by ABC. All you had to do was change the dial...(I think its ABC, they carry Rush, Hannady /sp and Levin....
You do realize that ridicule was not invented by Alinsky, right?
I posted a Jeffrey Lord piece, a piece from a local radio news website and a blog post from a similar site minutes before I posted my question about Rush. I did this as background for that question. Maybe you should keep up.
You didnt post any of that in this thread.
You’re not missing anything.
...and as exciting as a snail race.
Tell me what it is!!
