    You really have your channels screwed up big time.

    Of course. They talk about them 24/7.

    That's correct and its looks like Clear Channel is on the short end of the stick.

    Perhaps you could provide some verifiable evidence for that? While I no longer watch MSNBC very much, when I did or the occasional time I do now, I rarely hear much conversation from Limbaugh, Beck, Stossel, Hannity or Coulter or even about them.

    It looks like both Limbaugh and Hannity will be leaving Cumulus. I'd assume that any Clear Chanel stations in those markets would pick up the shows.

    Rush Limbaugh rushing out of Cumulus Media to WOR, with Sean Hannity in tow - NY Daily News

    More than anything this looks like cost cutting by Cumulus who, apparently, will try to substitute Levin and Savage for Limbaugh and Hannity.

    Fox says it might be Huckabee and Savage.

    Talking Points Memo? Pfft!

    Elsewhere it is reported somewhat differently.

    The article is actually from Politico. TPM ran with it.

    What kills me is the yawn factor of this whole thing. If they go liberal/progressives (who make a large part of there listening audience) will have no good reason to yell at their radio's anymore.

    Yeah, I don't see what the big deal is. They aren't being dropped because of ratings, it's a garden-variety contract dispute. They'll be back on the air in those cities.
