Radio, like TV, stresses profits, so that audience share is not
an academic matter. If Mr. Limbaugh's popularity is slipping, it
would not be surprising, since public reactions are fickle. Recently
it wsa announced that Mr. Donahue was giving up the ghost after about
29 years of popularity on TV.
Overall, the dropping of certain characters by stations is
unlikely to be a plot, but a reflection of changing winds. In any
case, Mr. Limbaugh should experience no difficulty in crying all the
way to the bank.
