SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — WGAN-AM is sticking with “The Rush Limbaugh Show” despite a local protest over the radio show host’s harsh words for a Georgetown University law student who supports health care coverage for contraception.

Limbaugh called the student a “slut” and “prostitute” last week, but later issued an apology.

On Thursday, Annie Finch of Falmouth led about a dozen women and a couple of men into the South Portland offices of the Portland Radio Group to deliver 5,700 signatures from people demanding that the company drop Limbaugh from WGAN.

Cary Pahigian, president and general manager, tells the Portland Press Herald that some advertisers have opted out of Limbaugh’s time slot but he says there’s has no intention of pulling the show.
