Hilo, Hawaii March 5, 2012: New West Broadcasting announced today that it is discontinuing the Rush Limbaugh program on KPUA AM 670 in Hilo, Hawaii effective immediately.
Chris Leonard, President and General Manager of New West released the following statement this morning:
We have always encouraged spirited discussion about national and local issues on KPUA and from time to time those discussions may be deemed by some to be objectionable. We are strong believers in the first amendment and have recognized Mr. Limbaugh's right to express opinions that often times differ from our own, but it has never been our goal to allow our station to be used for personal attacks and intolerance. The most recent incident has crossed a line of decency and a standard that we expect of programming on KPUA whether it is locally produced or a syndicated program like the Rush Limbaugh show. [snip] As a result, we are discontinuing the Rush Limbaugh program on KPUA effective immediately.

Effective immediately I will cease programming your station into any and all cars and I shall further re-visit the programming I have done and remove all pre-sets to your station .
Your discontinuance of Rush was a bad idea . It will have it's own costs
Oh noes! Don’t tell me the radio stations have been taken over by commies too! /s
GOOD FOR YOU!!!...WOW....OUTSTANDING!
Tit for tat.
This is what will impress the "opposition" more than anything. Thanks Citizen!
Do you have green eyes?
Like yours, m'lady, like yours?
Sorry, couldn't resist....
Good for you! THe hypocracy is blaring. He APOLOGIZED for God’s sake. And in my opinion, he didn’t have to. I have already told ProFlowers and Shari’s Berries I will never purchase their products again. They’re all going to feel the pain.
I learned this strategy from Andrew Breitbart
Now , you all , go out and GET SOME !.....
Translation: it gives us an excuse to dump the hefty syndication fee.
I’ll bet Rush will get many more 24/7 subscribers now.
"But we changed our minds about this."
“.....and have recognized Mr. Limbaugh’s right to express opinions that often times differ from our own....”
I wonder if this liberal hypocrite EVER inserts that qualifier into his assessment of the propaganda dispensed daily by the CommieMedia.
what are they, 50 watts? lol
KAPU. Sounds like it stinks. Never knew how anti american socialist the islands were. Conspiracy to commit fraud regarding O’s birth certificate. Electing a certifide commie for governor. Now this. To name a few. I can take to gnarly looks from the pineapples but this is the last straw. Be a cold day in hell before I travel there again.
and good for you
My Sears accounts are CLOSED. They can KMA
Capitol One is the next to go. Imagine them being “outraged” over a Rush crude joke when they have a fine woman-respecting guy like Alec Baldwin pitching their brand
I have no need for the products or services of the other scared skunks slinking away from Rush but there are plenty of competitors if I do!

Let us know how well that liberal rock soup tastes, after having to live off of sinking profit margins.
Your job is the bottom line and you’re failing.
You will be rewarded accordingly in the near future.
Actually I think I wiil do that right now thanks for the info.
I stream Rush down here in Brisbane, Australia off an east coast station. People in HI can do the same; just hook up with a west coast station like KTTH out of Seattle. I think they’d be getting it around 7am.
