Volunteer To Listen To Rush Limbaugh: East Coast

ATTENTION:
BOSTON, NEW YORK CITY, NEWARK, HARTFORD, WASHINGTON DC AND OTHER EAST COAST LOCALES

Thank you for showing an interest in boycotting Rush Limbaugh sponsors. This mission comes on the heels of his recent slanderous tirade that targeted college student Sandra Fluke, who was brave enough to testify in front of congress regarding contraceptive legislation. If you are interested in seeing a clip of Rush in action (brace yourself!), click here.

Because so much of the sponsorship of the Rush Limbaugh radio show is done on the local level, we need to focus on those advertisers as we move our boycott efforts forward. This requires (insert gag here) actually listening to the show and jotting down company names. Warning: Leading physicians recommend limiting these exposures to less than 20 minutes (snark, snark).

Please post your comments regarding sponsorship below and feel free to remain anonymous. If you would be so kind, put the date, time and company name. I can enter company contact information at a later time.

Thank you again for your support of this cause.

    On the second half of his "show" today in Boston, there were ads or Quicken Loans (who had said they pulled them - but apparently not!), Tax Resolution Services, LegalZoom.com and Redwing shoes.

    1. I am so sad to hear about Ford being a sponsor. My husband and I love our Ford Escape Hybrid and are/were? planning on purchasing our next hybrid from Ford as well. We even own stock in their company... aaarrrhhhggg !!!

  6. This is the exact correct way to approach this. I am afraid that many of the sponsors who are announcing today that they are "suspending" their ads will end up coming back after the current furor dies down.

    I'm willing to help. Contact me at my e-mail on Google:

  9. Sorry, could you delete my last post? This one has better contact information. Thanks!

    The key is to put on the pressure through the local advertisers.

    There are very few local advertising availabilities on The Rush Limbaugh Show and they sell at a premium. Below is a list of companies that advertised on The Rush Limbaugh Show on WMAL AM 360 (Washington, D.C.) on March 5, 2012. Here's what to do:

    Call the advertiser, be polite.
    Write a letter to the advertiser, be polite.
    Copy the station and the FCC with the advertiser letter.
    Politely call the General Manager of the station,tell the GM what you are doing and why, tell them you have contacted the advertiser and copied the FCC.
    If the local advertiser uses an agency, contact the agency, as well. Just ask the local business, if they use an agency.

    It won’t take many letters and phone calls to get their attention and remind the station that the letters need to be placed in the station’s public file. (the public file is an FCC requirement)

    Local stations don’t get many local avails in Rush’s show and many pay a huge fee to Premiere to run the show. If they start losing business, they will raise hell with Premiere.

  10. I have contacted every WMAL sponsor except Frank Prindle. Goodwill said that their ad was a mistake and have called their ad company to make sure it never happens again. It seems Rush had an opening.....

    Others need also to contact these companies.

  11. I listened to The Rush Limbaugh Show this afternoon (3/6/2012 @ 12:00PM - 3:00PM EST) on Gainesville, GA Radio Station WDUN-AM (freq 550) and heard a Wal-Mart advertisement.

    Please add Wal-Mart to your list of sponsors.

    Thank you so much for your efforts to get this disgusting and degrading show off the air.
