Another radio company has said that Rush Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke wound up hurting its bottom line.

Dial Global, a radio programming company, said on Thursday that it will remove itself from the NASDAQ stock exchange — a sure sign of financial trouble. In addition, it had multimillion dollar losses in its latest quarter.

Dial listed a whole host of factors for its financial straits. But one of them was "advertisers' response to controversial statements by a certain nationally syndicated talk radio personality in March 2012."

That personality was, of course, Limbaugh, who called Fluke a "slut" for her birth control advocacy, prompting an advertiser exodus.

Other companies have cited Limbaugh as a partial reason for their weaker earnings. Cumulus, another radio company, said that his anti-Fluke rants had cost it millions of dollars.
