    Limbaugh...

    Bloomberg businessweek, August 30

    'After some testy negotiations with Clear Channel, Cumulus just reached a new syndication deal to air Limbaugh’s show. The company did not renew its agreement to broadcast Sean Hannity, the No. 2 talk-show host, who is also handled by Premiere. The Dial purchase gives Cumulus an inside track to a stable of talent to fill the gap left by Hannity or to sub in for Limbaugh the next time he runs afoul of advertisers.

    ' Here are a few options that Dial brings to the table from across the political spectrum, from right to left:

    STORY: Are Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity Overpaid?
    • Herman Cain: The pizza magnate and memorable candidate from the 2012 Republican presidential primaries has, well, almost as much conservative cred as Limbaugh, if not nearly the same following.
    • Dennis Miller: He describes himself as “basically a libertarian,” and he’s funny—not a prerequisite in talk-radio, but it helps.
    • Thom Hartmann: A progressive former businessman who aims for the “radical middle.
    • Bill Press: The former chairman of the California Democratic Party.
    • Ed Schulz: A former college football star and conservative who now refers to himself as “a leftie.”

    If none of these guys fits the bill, Dial can cut Cumulus a sweet deal for “Pop Crush with Billy Bush.” Bush is the cousin of President George W. Bush, but politics aren’t really his bag.'
