Youngstown ad agency exec pulls clients' ads from Limbaugh show



Published: Wed, March 7, 2012 @ 1:35 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Robert C. Roach, president of Youngstown-based PageOne Advertising, LLC, today sent a letter to all agency clients explaining his decision to no longer purchase or place advertisements on behalf of clients to air during The Rush Limbaugh Show, which airs locally on 570 WKBN-AM.

PageOne represents clients in the Cleveland, Akron/Canton, Youngstown/Warren, and Pittsburgh media markets.

In a letter to agency clients, Roach said “No woman, including Ms. [Sandra] Fluke, should ever be subject to the type of insults and vitriol broadcast during 'The Rush Limbaugh Show' last week, and no individual or business should wish to be associated with this type of irresponsible behavior.”

It is not known the value of PageOne ads that are heard on Limbaugh’s show. Roach was not immediately available for comment.

The radio host has come under fire after calling a Georgetown 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.

State Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, is circulating a petition to remove the conservative talker from WKBN.

Please let me know what are local clients of this agency so that I can boycott these clients.

I resent Mr. Roach restricting free speech so I will now boycott and bad mouth his clients.

Will Barack Obama give back Bill Maher's $1,000,000 donation. If you don't know Maher has made more derogatory comments about women than Rush ever has.

Just what I guessed. PageOne operates out of his mothers basement...

Turns out they are not a viable company. They work out of the basement of a relative's house in Austintown.
They attempt to work for union and liberal causes but is mainly just a floundering two-bit operation.
They attempted to cash in on Limbaugh controversy knowing liberal media outlets would give them ink.

Says something about Vindicator editors that they ran this without doing background info, Vindy just published a pr fluff piece without checking authenticity of source.
Poor, poor work by the Vindy and certainly shows low standards by ou " watchdog" newspaper.

Being the mother of 5 girls and grandmother of 8 girls, I commend you on your decision to stop advertising there. That was an almost week long assault on every young woman in this country. I have never heard such vile filth on a radio station and to aim it at a college student while telling lies about her testimony was a disgrace.
