WRKO-A/Boston To Drop Rush Limbaugh
May 19, 2015 at 7:03 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS has confirmed that ENTERCOM News-Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON is dropping PREMIERE NETWORKS' RUSH LIMBAUGH after the station and syndicator failed to reach agreement on a renewal.
LIMBAUGH returned to WRKO in 2012 after a stint on iHEARTMEDIA's then-News-Talk WXKS-A (TALK 1200).
A statement from PREMIERE said, “We were unable to reach agreeable terms for The RUSH LIMBAUGH Show to continue on WRKO. A final broadcast date will be announced in the near future. RUSH LIMBAUGH airs daily in every measured media market in AMERICA, and we look forward to announcing exciting news for our BOSTON listeners soon.” WRKO is likely to move morning host JEFF KUHNER to LIMBAUGH's slot and establish a new local morning show to be announced shortly.
