Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has a new deal that will allow him to continue his nationally-networked radio program for three more years on all of the Cumulus Media broadcasting stations that are currently presenting his radio program – except New York City’s WABC radio station – according to a Saturday news report by UPI. In New York City, the extremely opinionated conservative talker will be moving to Clear Channel’s WOR radio station.
As Limbaugh said on his radio show on Friday, a month ago you couldn’t turn on the drive-by media without reading that he was finished, but he’ll be gracing the airwaves with his strong right-leaning opinions for three more years.
Just last month, there were reports that Limbaugh was out on a limb without a networked-communications company to air his number one rated talk show in America. But a month later, the deal is signed and Limbaugh will continue being heard on 40 highly-rated radio stations throughout the country.
After commenting on President Barack Obama’s remarks about Limbaugh on Friday morning, in which Obama claimed on CNN that Limbaugh was responsible for the gridlock in government, Limbaugh graciously thanked his listeners for being loyal to his sponsors. On his incredible two-decades long career in talk radio, Limbaugh said that he has stayed on top for so long due to his honesty and trustworthiness in speaking about issues – and he said that he says what many people are already thinking.
The details of Limbaugh’s Cumulus deal were not disclosed.
