    Republican consultant Charley Manning is replacing the nationally syndicated Rush Limbaugh on WRKO radio starting Monday.

    WRKO bumps Rush Limbaugh for Charley Manning - BostonHerald.com

    :clap2:

    don't let the door hit your sorry, fat ass on the way out.

    he's going to some no name station further up the dial that isn't on my presets so now i don't have to worry about hearing him by accident.

    w000t!

    The station is going for local programming and issues. Good for them. I wonder if the cheaper costs of programming played in at all? Also, will the station lose a significant number of listeners?

    his contract was running out and this other station wanted him. i'm sure his agent pushed for more $$$, and RKO said thanks, but no thanks.

    i don't know if it will cost them listeners, but i'm sure manning works a lot cheaper than rush and doesn't come with all the restrictions in terms of advertising sales-i.e. RKO can sell all the time rather than having to give some to limbaugh's national sponsors.

    manning's a pretty bright guy; i'll check him out.

    A more moderate voice added would be welcomed. Maybe he'll grow a national audience as time goes by.

    manning is a heck of a lot smarter than rushbot. he's more civil and more interesting.

    maybe THAT is why they're dumping the rushbot?

    either way, here's to charley manning :beer:

    there are feral dogs that are more civil than limbaugh. :)

    i think they're dumping him because of money-Entercom is hurting in general, but i like charlie and he brings a lot more light than heat to the table.

    Rush doesn't need to be civil. He has no peer, and his show consists of Rush and his own commentary only.

    Despite the left's tendency to label anyone who doesn't fall lockstep for liberal rhetoric as "stupid" Rush is exceedingly intelligent. He created his niche and there is nobody who even comes close in terms of respect garnered, money earned, and stick-to-itness..without being dependent upon anyone.

    i'm sure there are people, like yourself, who consider him exceedingly intelligent.

    he certainly is peerless.

    thank god for small favors he's also gone.

    I'm sure Rush is all broken up over this decision. :lol:
