Are Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity Overpaid? - Businessweek
- Talk—spittle-flecked, bombastic, right-wing talk—might finally be getting cheap. Cumulus Media (CMLS), the second-largest broadcaster in the U.S., appears to be at an impasse with talk-radio stars Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, who fill its airtime from noon to 6 p.m. every weekday. The conservatives are the country’s highest-rated radio jocks, and they are very expensive. With both contracts up at year-end, Cumulus is reportedly shopping for replacements, according to Politico.
