Skip to comments.WRKO To Pre-empt Rush Limbaugh For Red Sox Spring Training Games

A Letter from The Program Director of WRKO:
Dear WRKO Listeners:
As you know, last May, WRKO entered into a 10 year agreement to broadcast Boston Red Sox Baseball. We are extremely excited about this new partnership and are very confident that the Red Sox will play a major role in our plan to take this station to the next level. Our contract calls for us to air 15 spring training games from Florida, in addition to the full 162 game regular season schedule. A handful of the those 15 spring broadcasts begin at 1p on weekdays and as such have caused us to pre-empt the Rush Limbaugh show.

Today, the laughingly parochial WMAL substituted a college basketball game for Rush Limbaugh. This in Your Nation's Capital.
Rush taking back seat to the faggot Red Sox?
So what if they are pre-empting Red Sox for Rush, the real crime is when they are doing this to Howie.
Solution: subscribe to Rush 24/7 and listen to the podcasts.
Ehhh, Rush is on all the time. Missed it today? Catch it tomorrow.
This is baseball, man. Spring has sprung! Woo-HOO!
(Even if it is the &$*#^@ Red Sox.)
I'm a baseball fan but nothing is more boring than listening to a Spring Training game on the radio. I guess with Dice-K it makes it more interesting, but I'm surprised they agreed to broadast ALL ST games.
Kinda tells ya how big baseball fans red sox people are that they would broadcast their baseball games...most teams just broadcast their weekend/evening games.
When WBAL in Baltimore had Rush Limbaugh (he's on WCBM now) they used to pre-empt Rush for Orioles baseball if a game were played during the day. At least a Red Sox game is worth listening too.
That would be the 3rd place Red Sox right? :)
