Those who lean to the right politically will be happy to know that conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh just signed a new deal with Cumulus.

Limbaugh announced on his Friday show that he signed a three-year deal with Cumulus Media. He shared the good news with his audience, without a few people being aware he was going to make the announcement, “My broadcast partners do not know I’m gonna do this, but I’m gonna go ahead: We completed our negotiations with Cumulus Media, and there will not be any changes. I will continue to be on their radio stations for the next three years. It was really never in doubt, but I don’t want to do my own version of negotiating here. The only change that’s going to happen is that on January 1 we are going to leave WABC and move to WOR in New York.” WABC is where Limbaugh began nationally broadcasting his show in 1988. WOR is owned by Clear Channel, which also happens to be the parent company of Premiere Networks. Premiere Networks syndicates The Rush Limbaugh Show.

During his show the talk show host told his audience, “A month ago you couldn’t turn on the drive-by media without reading that I was finished.”

On CNN Friday morning, President Barack Obama blamed Limbaugh for gridlock. The humor of being irrelevant to relevant didn’t go unnoticed.

You can listen to how the radio host found out about being blamed for the gridlock in the media .

The conservative talk show host added, “You were reading that it was over for me. That I was bad news for broadcast stations. In this interview today, Obama blamed me. After a month of being irrelevant, after a month of being almost over, after a month of being a has-been…a month ago you couldn’t turn on the drive-by media without reading that I was finished.”

Limbaugh of course took time to thank his audience for their loyalty to his sponsors and explained why the show has lasted so long and gained popularity: “honesty and trust.”

You can hear Limbaugh make the announcement himself in the media below.

    I find it rather refreshing that you’ve been able to get under obamas skin, and , I’m wondering what would it take to remove him the way they tried to remove you?. If I had the words, I’d give them to you. Never in history has there been such a divide as has been caused by this clown and the more he talks, the worse it gets on a world level. Do your level best to stoke the fires on the “repub/conservative/tea party and for once in there lives reach common ground and do the world a favor of monumental proportions. Give em hell rush, give em hell……………

    He’s a lightning rod for sure, but why is so much of what he says exactly how it is? Maybe his next book ought to be entitled, “This is how it is!” When you examine the voting public’s record I think you will find that hardly 50% of the voting age public votes. This means that just a little more than 25% of the voting public has elected several of our last presidents. It’s amazing how we can complain, gripe, argue, and carry on so much over someone who gets elected by barely a 1/4 of the people. Maybe it ought to be a law that you have to vote if you are registered, but alas our country gives us the right “not to vote” as much as it does to vote. Go ahead RUSH!

    Just WHO is this ” Jack Myers”, with such profound wit and insight, who commented at 11:29am on August 24, 2013?

    Allow me to opine………

    1. Jack surely represents one of those LIV’s responsible for putting many of our elected comrads into office.

    2. Jack is obviously a liberal, having nothing worthwhile to say other than “Rush” should die…

    3. Jack is probably a recreational drug user, not knowing what it is like to be in chronic pain with a debilitating injury, needing something to just cut the pain so that one can function through their day. Another example of liberal behavior. making commentary without knowing any of the facts………

    4. Jack is obviously an idiot. I am sure that he has never listened to Limbaugh for a week straight in his life. If he had, he might actual have thought about his words before he carelessly wrote them. But then, that’s what most feel good, do nothing liberals savor about their lives.

    I am truly conservative, far more than Limbaugh, and it is only a matter of time before the revolution brings this country back from the abyss. Liberals are scared to death, and they should be. And when we do take the country back, it won’t be pretty. But it will be decisive. Be ready.

    Jerome Wilson, another liberal that has no clue as to why Rush has the success he has and the respect of advertisers. Should probably read a few more business magazines there Jerome, and not the books they force you to buy at those centers of higher education, ie “college”. Save your money, you will never understand.

      What Chris said.

  • al

    Typical, rednecks rallying around this pathetic mongrel. Hes a crack head just like all the other methed out hillbillies on here. White folks like this make me laugh. They are so obsessed with blacks and hispanics that they cant go a day without throwin some hate their way. The only thing this coward runs on is the cowardice of others like him. Nothing to offer society but bitching and moaning how the white man is loosing everything. How sad. You give good white folks a bad name.

  • Daniel

    Rush will retire in three years.
