PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Another radio station is dropping Rush Limbaugh’s talk show following the conservative host’s derisive comments about a law student advocating for coverage of birth control in the health care debate.
Radio station 1420 AM WBEC in Pittsfield, Mass., said Tuesday it is no longer airing Limbaugh’s show and apologized to anyone who may have been offended by his remarks.

Limbaugh called Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” last week after she urged lawmakers consider the importance of contraception coverage in national health care policy.
Limbaugh apologized on his website Saturday and on the air on Monday but it was too little, too late for many. At least eight companies have pulled their advertisements and one other radio station has stopped airing the show.
