More than 13.75 million people listen to Limbaugh per week while Hannity draws more then 12.5 million weekly listeners, Talkers reported.
Michael Savage is third with more than 8 million listeners a week.
There is tie for fourth place between shock jock Howard Stern -- soon due to move to Sirius Satellite Radio -- and Dr. Laura Schlessinger with more than 7.75 million weekly listeners, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.
Laura Ingraham filled out the Top 5 with more than 5 million.

More importantly, where is Mark Levin?!
Where's Franken?....Who's Franken?
I wouldn't even recognize Al Franken if he hadn't written a book that got his face plastered all over television for weeks on end doing fawning interviews on every network.
In fact, the media were obsessed with his bold assertion that conservatives were nothing but a bunch of liars. He almost came off sounding noble... That is, if you believe everything you hear in the MSM.
I agree, too bad Rush is on in the afternoon during work hours where I live instead of during the drive home.
The White House should take note of these numbers, and the messages conveyed to the audiences.
Rush Limbaugh is a living legend.
Levin is only on in New York and a few other markets. Rush is nationwide.
He'd have to spend hours in front of the mirror each morning to get his hair to look that bad.
"I demand a recount".
Where's O'Reilly? He's as big a jerk on radio as on TV.
Hannity really screwed up on the FL Emanate Domain story. He missed a lot of the facts.
it's a nation wide total
Of course Rush is king of political talk - print and media. His shadow hangs over all of the talking heads.
Memo to Rush: Do more parodies!
