  •  UNC Chapel Hill does broadcast on Rush Radio too (5+ / 0-)

    I live in the Triangle, NC and I listen to the Tarheels basket ball team from time to time on the radio.

    The Tarheels games are also on WCHL, which carries mostly liberal voices during the day such as Stephanie Miller, Ed Schulz, ... etc.
    WCHL is less powerful than Rush Radio. People in Orange county listen to the game there most of the time.

    Outside of Orange county, it is more difficult to listen to WCHL, therefore most people who want to listen to the game will listen to it on Rush Radio, wrdu, which is also Fox-Radio, as it carries right wing nuts all day long.

    There has been multiple attempts to get the UNC CH off Rush Radio, those have been unsuccessful so far.  Letters were written to Chancellor Thorpe ... so far, no action ...

    •  I will add UNC Chapel Hill to the diary above (4+ / 0-)

      I will also forward their contact info to StopRush. Perhaps if UNC Chapel Hill hears from more people, they too, will pull ads. Thank you.

    •  In Detroit we lost our progressive radio station (5+ / 0-)

      on January 1st this year.  No advance notice or hints, nothing.  Just static.
      Been bummed out about it since.
      Fucking Clear Channel!

      I can see Canada from my house. No, really, I can.

      according my previous research

      maybe this would help (from comment above) http://www.dailykos.com/...

      the mission statement and NCATE standards might be good ammo.

      they can hem and haw all they want about their desire to be politically impartial (broadcasting on RW radio!) and sports and politics are separate, and those talkers are just entertainer and individual voices reflecting the values of their listeners etc.,  but their association with radio stations dedicated to global warming denial should be indefensible.

      local/state GOP hacks in the uni apparatus (maybe some elected/appointed with the support from the local RW blowhards) will be very reluctant for unis to start withdrawing from RW radio- just the declaration of the intent not to renew the contract would be total disaster and would force the station into major changes to survive/maintain.

      This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.
