UPDATE! So many people have asked how to get involved we put this list together, join us!
Despite what Clear Channel wants you to think, the national grassroots effort to boycott Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors is working in its own quiet way.
Actually, the effort has been more about notifying advertisers than boycotting.
Every day volunteers grit their teeth and listen to Limbaugh’s hate-filled lunchtime show on hundreds of affiliates across the country. They keep track of who is Read more…
UPDATED: 4/5 This page includes lists from listeners recording advertisers from across the country. The participating is growing. There are several other sites like ours out there and we don’t all have the same lists. We will be adding names to the list throughout the day 4/5 and 4/6 – so keep checking back, we add the latest names given to us to the top of the list below!
Please use these lists to make contact w/sponsors whose ads played week of April 2 -04/04 and those from the week of March 26 who haven’t yet confirmed they have pulled their ads from Rush’s show. Some may have said they weren’t aware their ads were on the show, but until they are NO LONGER ADVERTISING They will be on this list. There is a short list of national sponsors who continue to advertise w/Limbaugh – those are listed here
If you are willing to listen to the Rush Limbaugh show on your local station and keep a list of advertisers we’d appreciate it of you share those lists with us – submit your lists via comments.
Please send emails, use facebook and twitter and contact forms. Try to be Read more…

KKSF Oakland Newstalk910 week of 3/26
Years ago, I drove my daughter from New England to South Carolina to look at colleges. She was an athlete and was considering her options. We visited UNC Chapel Hill and I fell in love with the charming setting, older buildings, and gardens. My daughter loved the school, but the academic program she was looking for wasn’t a match with the programs the school offered. She settled on a smaller private school further south. If we had been making that search now, I’d be doing a little extra background work. Does this school have any association with Rush Limbaugh? Sound extreme? Not really. Read more…
“More than half of those interviewed also say radio host Rush Limbaugh, who called a female law student testifying publicly in favor of birth-control coverage a “slut” and “prostitute,” should be fired based solely on those comments.” Read more…
Got a message with some advice: You can tell the advertiser exactly what station(s) and which day(s) their ad aired by looking here: http://bit.ly/zc936I. Many have no idea that their ads are running during his show, so this information will help them resolve the issue. And please BE POLITE.…
Example of individual messages to sponsors pulled from the facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Boycott-Rush-Limbaughs-Sponsors-to-SHUT-HIM-DOWN/253645602134 :
What can we do to be sure to get rid of Rush for GOOD? The consensus from the experts on the advertisers 2 week vacation is that they all hope we have a short attention span and by keeping these sponsors out of the spotlight for two weeks we will forget about it and leave them alone. Will we?
How does Limbaugh make his money? Is it more important to boycott national sponsors or local sponsors? Should we be making contact with the stations themselves? So far the answer is all of the above.
What does Premiere pay Limbaugh for and do they, in turn, make their money? Do they get income from affiliates? Do they just make money on national advertisers? Do local advertisers pay Premiere or local stations? Tonight we watched three reports of Limbaugh’s “2 week national sponsor vacation” and heard three different takes on what this means and how Limbaugh’s show makes him 50 million a year… so lets get to the bottom of this.
There are hints here in Rush’s own words in a statement he made last week (below.) He explained to his audience how it works, or how he’d like them to think it works. We still beleive the key to taking him off the air for good it tell local advertisers to stop advertising on local stations – over all, not just rush’s show! Tell sponsors that as long as they support Limbaugh’s affiliates wo choose to play his show, you won’t be purchasing their products or services. KEEP THE PRESSURE ON DURING THIS 2 WEEK “VACATION” – lets not stop this, lets ratchet it up.
Rush’s own words take from his own website: Read more…
These letters to Rush Limbaugh are powerful and remind us all why we need to step up the effort to boycott Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors. Please contact these advertisers both National and Local and sign the petitions on the petition page. This is a growing movement. If you have information about a local radio station’s sponsors, please leave a comment with the information requested in the comment form.
Dear Mr. Limbaugh,
I am a woman of Georgetown University, but I was once a little girl, who heard words like the ones you used to describe us.
I was six years old the first time I heard the word “whore” used to describe me. I remember how he spat the word at me through the rage he wore like armor. He used that word to Read more…
