    After news broke about the Rush Limbaugh Show getting kicked to the curb by WRKO-AM in Boston, Nielsen radio market #10, I received about a dozen emails asking when I was going to comment.

For most of us, revenue and ratings are connected. But, that’s not true for everyone. After Rush Limbaugh stepped over the line with his Sandra Fluke comments a few...

The WRKO-AM (680) afternoon-drive talker and Herald columnist filed his most recent complaint against the station’s owner, Entercom Communications, over a month ago before he was hit with a weeklong suspension in April for badmouthing the...
