I am still amazed that your station keeps Rush Limbaugh, on the air, as part of your format. Do you people really believe in this guy. Lets see, an admitted drug-addict, high school dropout, never held any public office in his life, and more controversary, than the law almost allows.

ANSWER
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We appreciate all listener input.

With respect to Rush Limbaugh, I wish you could see my email inbox. It’s uncanny how many complaints we get about Rush versus how many listeners write in to thank us for airing Rush. No doubt about it, Rush is a lightning rod and he engenders strong opinion. Here we are talking about him.

Which is exactly what talk radio is about.

Rush is smart enough to know that a sizable number of the listeners to his
show think he’s a buffoon and they listen in order to reaffirm that
opinion. Rush is laughing all the way to the bank.

If you met Rush in person, he would tell you that he is not out to drive
American policy or shape the political landscape. He’s out to sell Select
Comfort mattresses. Which he does in a huge way.

Rush is the most listened-to radio show in the U.S. and the most
listened-to show on KTBB. If we took him off the air, a competing station
in the market would grab him in a nanosecond and in an instant become a
formidable competitor for us. I’m not about to let that happen.

We have an entirely different talk lineup on KTBB-FM at 92.1. During the
time that Rush is on the air, you can listen to Clark Howard and Dave
Ramsey. Both shows are excellent.

I again thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us.
