The Social Poets: Good News: Rush Limbaugh Kicked Off Philadelphia Station: From Denny: It appears some conservatives have awakened to getting rid of Rush Limbaugh. OK, actually it's really about boycotts and their profits they don't want to lose. Those darn liberals were just too effective at putting pressure on the advertisers. :)
One of the largest radio markets in the country is Philadelphia, the "city of brotherly love." The dominant conservative talk radio station there, WPHT, an AM station, has jettisoned "The Rush Limbaugh Show" in favor of a native son, "The Michael Smerconish Show." Normally, Smerconish's show is time-delayed but with the removal of Limbaugh, Smerconish can now broadcast live in his home market.
You might recognize Smerconish from his guest hosting of Chris Matthews' Hardball show. I like the guy immensely as he is of agile mind and a balanced moderate opinion, you know, most of America. Matthews could retire and Smerconish would make a great sequel.
