KBND's "Limbaugh" Bombshell is More of the Same 

In case you missed it, KBND dropped its big bombshell this morning, a programming change that the local news and sports station and home to controversial radio host Rush Limbaugh, had been promoting heavily over the past week as a major change for KBND.

The station has been under heavy pressure from some community members to ax Limbaugh over his well-publicized remarks about a Georgetown undergrad student, whom Limbaugh referred to as a “slut” for her efforts to promote access to birth control.

Over the past week, KBND’s parent company Combined Communications used its other radio stations to promote the closely guarded programming change, a move that Combined described as a major change that KBND wouldn’t have conceived just a year ago.

Listeners who tuned in to hear that KBND had dropped Limbaugh were no doubt disappointed to learn that the station’s big news had nothing to do with the shock jock. Instead, KBND announced that its expanding its conservative talk line-up, adding former Arkansas Gov. and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and dropping popular sports commentator Dan Patrick.

That folks is what’s known as a bait and switch. Then again if you thought KBND, a station that makes its living by pillorying Dems and progressives was going to dump its biggest attraction, you probably had it coming.
