But the past years have not actually been that great for either Limbaugh or i Heart Radio.“The talker is facing ratings hurdles, aging demographics, and an advertising community that increasingly views him as toxic,” Boehlert writes, “thanks in part to his days-long sexist meltdown over Sandra Fluke in 2012.”In addition, i Heart Radio’s own finances are in serious trouble, “teetering on bankruptcy,” according to Boehlert.
Limbaugh is probably facing a major pay cut, or, worse, being cancelled altogether.
Bad for the Republicans, but in theory, good for Limbaugh, whose show is all about conservative outrage.This is a man who rose to prominence in the ’90s by having daily multi-hour rants about the supposed evils of then-president Bill Clinton.Now that hyper-conservative voting base has decided the Republican party itself is not pure or conservative enough.The result is a flocking to Donald Trump, who can portray himself as a Tea Party-remisicient outsider, a man who isn’t afraid to say or do the other things that the supposed quislings in the party are too afraid to say or do.
His contract with i Heart Radio (formerly Clear Channel) is about to be up, and frankly, there are good reasons for the behemoth radio corporation to drop him: His ratings are down, his audience is aging, he’s lost advertisers and frankly, there’s a lot of competitors that are equally good at spewing right-wing bile at a much cheaper price tag. Not only were the Democratic prospects of winning the presidency looking good after eight years of George W.Bush, but neither of the viable candidates for the nomination was a white man.
