Not another conservative talk show host? Why not.
YDR: Cumulus Radio Group is betting that listeners and advertisers will find Rep. Mike Rogers ' hearty voice, contempt for right-wing ideologues and expertise in national security inviting.
But as the radicalization of right wing radio gets even more shrill and ridiculous, listeners are taking a hike:
Two years ago, Limbaugh called a then-Georgetown University student a "slut" after she testified to Congress advocating contraception. Limbaugh's comments led to an advertising boycott and since then, his ratings have dipped in key markets.

"Ultimately, demographics are going marginalize this sore-head brand of talk radio," Cooke said. "We have 95 million millennials who are about to take over the American economy."
