AM 1420 WBEC  RELEASES STATEMENT REGARDING THE REMOVAL OF RUSH LIMBAUGH FROM THE AIRWAVES

DUE TO THE INAPPROPRIATE REMARKS MADE BY RUSH LIMBAUGH, REGARDING SANDRA FLUKE, THE MANAGEMENT OF AM1420 WBEC HAS MADE THE DECISION TO REMOVE THE RUSH LIMBAUGH SHOW FROM THE PROGRAMMING LINE-UP EFFECTIVE MARCH 5TH.  RUSH LIMBAUGH ‘S COMMENTS DO NOT REFLECT THE VIEWPOINTS OF THE STATION MANAGEMENT AND WE APOLOGIZE TO ANYONE WHO MAY HAVE BEEN OFFENDED BY HIS REMARKS.  WHILE WE UNDERSTAND THE CONTROVERSIAL NATURE OF TALK RADIO AND ENCOURAGE POLITICAL DISCOURSE, WE BELIEVE THERE ARE WAYS TO DO THAT WITHOUT EXCEEDING THE BOUNDS OF CIVILITY.  RUSH’S DEFAMATORY AND DISPARAGING REMARKS ABOUT MS. FLUKE CLEARLY VIOLATED THE STANDARDS WE HAVE SET FOR OUR STATIONS AND LEFT US NO CHOICE BUT TO REMOVE HIM FROM OUR AIRWAVES.
