    Post Cumulus Renews with Rush for Two Years

    Premiere and Cumulus have an agreement to air Rush Limbaugh to 2019.
    28th Anniversary? Wait I thought Rush Limbaugh have been doing his talk show since 1983-1984 on KFBK Sacramento? and in 1988 WABC-AM got his show?

    Premiere Networks and Cumulus Media announced today a renewed and extended affiliation agreement that will keep The Rush Limbaugh Show on 33 Cumulus stations through 2019. On the heels of the program's 28th anniversary in national syndication, the multi-million dollar deal represents Limbaugh's increased power and audience appeal as the most-listened-to national radio talk show host in America.

    In the last year, The Rush Limbaugh Show experienced combined audience growth of +49 % with Persons 12+ and +23% with Adults 25- 54 on Cumulus-owned stations in Chicago (WLS-AM), Detroit (WJR-AM), Washington, D.C. (WMAL-FM), Dallas (WBAP-AM) and San Francisco (KSFO-AM). Nationwide, the program has experienced significant year-over-year audience growth in 2016 with Persons 12+ (+21%), Adults 25-54 (+13%), Adults 18-34 (+12%) and Women 25-54 (+17%).

    The 28 years is from when he went national in 1988.

    He renewed with Premiere earlier this year. He'll be on the airwaves for years to come.

    The national show starting in '88 is considered a new show, not a continuation of what he did on KFBK.
