Hours after Rush Limbaugh downplayed a report yesterday claiming radio broadcaster Cumulus Media wants to drop his program from its stations, Sean Hannity took to his radio show to do the same. He brushed aside the news, reassured the audience that all is well, and sent them a rather cryptic message about new things to come.
Hannity remarked, “I wish I could talk about some of the industry nonsense that goes on,” but then acknowledged that the audience doesn’t really care about the politics of the radio business. He mockingly dismissed the news that out of the 500+ radio station affiliates all across the country, he might get dropped from a few dozen of them.
He “very confidently” told the audience that they have nothing to worry about, and also briefly dismissed another report about 48 out of 50 top advertisers excluding his show from their ad buys, before sending this message to his listeners.
“There are forces at work here that I will explain in due course, I promise, and I just can’t really explain it now. I’m not trying to be mysterious here, but it’s something that is unfolding and I’m, frankly, excited about it all.”
