State Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, is circulating a petition to remove conservative talker Rush Limbaugh from Youngstown radio airwaves.

Limbaugh, whose nationally-syndicated show is heard on more than 600 stations, is heard locally on WKBN-AM (570).

The radio host has come under fire after calling a George Washington University law student derogatory names after she testified to congressional Democrats in support of national health care policies that would require employers to offer group health insurance that covers birth control.

Two radio stations, one in Massachusetts and the other in Hawaii, have already dropped Limbaugh’s show as a result of his comments and at least a dozen advertisers have pulled ads from Limbaugh’s show.

Hagan’s petition, available by clicking here, has more than 1,040 signatures this afternoon.
