See my previous posts on the subject. The audiences don't translate from one media to another Beck has 7 million listeners, Rush and Hannity have 14 million plus respectively. The most Fox ever got was about 2 million from Beck, then again 2 million viewers is the current total number of viewers for all the cable news networks combined currently. By the way 7 million and 14 million listeners is nothing to sneeze at, especially in television.
