Distributor: Rush Limbaugh Has Regained Advertisers
Rush Limbaugh, the conservative talk-radio host who lost advertisers after calling a student a “slut,” is recovering quite well, his distributor says.
Limbaugh used the term in 2012 after Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke testified before a congressional steering committee on why she believed the Catholic university should be forced to offer birth control under its insurance plan. After a public outcry, many of his advertisers fled.
The slump continued into early 2013, but advertising on the program has picked back up in the second quarter, Premiere Radio senior vice president and director of talk-radio sales Dan Metter said at the Talkers New York 2013 conference.
