Emmis Communications and Premiere
Networks announced today a decision to end their partnership in Indianapolis.
As a result, WIBC 93.1 FM, Indianapolis' News/Talk station, will not renew its
contract to air The Rush Limbaugh Show.

"Premiere has been a great partner, and Rush has been an iconic part of WIBC's
heritage and success," said Charlie Morgan, SVP/Market Manager for
Emmis-Indianapolis. "WIBC has a strong line-up of live and local personalities
delivering great radio, and we will continue to be Indianapolis' home for
listeners with a passion for conservative values and principles."

"We've had a wonderful partnership with Emmis for many years, including a long
history of ratings success for The Rush Limbaugh Show in Indianapolis," stated
Julie Talbott, President of Premiere Networks.

Limbaugh's show currently airs from 12-3 pm weekdays on WIBC, and the
program's last day on the station will be July 3. No replacement was
immediately named.

WIBC is home to conservative, local talent Tony Katz, Greg Garrison, Chicks on
the Right and Abdul at Large as well as syndicated talk host Dana Loesch.
