KFGO/Fargo Drops Limbaugh
February 5, 2007 at 5:47 AM (PT)
ED SCHULTZ returning to INGSTAD Talk KFGO-A/FARGO for a local show in late mornings and LARRY RISTVEDT's return to co-host mornings aren't the only news at the station -- afternooners JACK SUNDAY and SANDY BUTTWEILER have moved to middays 10:30a-2p, bumping PREMIERE's RUSH LIMBAUGH off KFGO's schedule.
"RUSH LIMBAUGH is gone," reads the message on JACK AND SANDY's web page. "We honestly don't know which station will pick him up. I'm sure he'll do just fine. We acknowledge his success and popularity. Tens of millions of fans can't ALL be wrong. (Some are...) We're flattered and honored to inherit the midday 'daypart' here at KFGO. That's a big seat to fill with RUSH's departure. We're sure our 'live and local' appeal can be broadened and perhaps those die hard ditto-heads can find worth in what's going on in FARGO, LISBON, and out in BISMARCK."
On RUSH's website, "a special FARGO Internet stream" has been set up "while we select the next FARGO member of the EIB family."
