Rush Limbaugh Apologizes To Sandra Fluke
March 28, 2012 by staff
Rush Limbaugh Apologizes To Sandra Fluke, Advertisers and some radio stations may have abandoned Rush Limbaugh for calling a Georgetown law student a “sl*t.” But the CEO of the radio company that distributes Limbaugh’s show, Clear Channel, says he’s sticking with the conservative talk show host, calling him the “king” of radio.
Bob Pittman told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday that the outrage over Limbaugh’s comments last month was “part of the normal day-to-day of talk radio.” He also noted that Limbaugh apologized for the first time in 30 years.
Speaking publicly for the first time since the controversy erupted late last month, Pittman said that advertisers leaving the program did not have a major impact on the company and there has not been a major move among stations to drop Limbaugh.
Until now, media inquiries about the show had been directed to Clear Channel’s talk show syndication subsidiary, Premiere Radio Networks.
“Rush is Rush and radio is radio,” Pittman said.
He added that attempts by rival radio company Cumulus Media to sell a show hosted by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee in Limbaugh’s time slot validated Limbaugh’s status as the talk-show leader.
“It basically says Rush is the king,” he said. “Rush is certainly the leader, and we’re delighted to have him.”
