As part of the continuing exodus of advertisers from The Rush Limbaugh Show, Walgreens confirmed it will no longer run ads during Rush Limbaugh's show. Ads from Walgreens had recently been running during Limbaugh's program.

Walgreens confirmed on Twitter that the company is "no longer advertising" on Limbaugh's show:

In a separate tweet on the matter, Walgreens further explained:

Walgreens is the latest advertiser to publicly state it will not advertise on The Rush Limbaugh Show following Limbaugh's three-day attack on Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown law student. Limbaugh's attacks came after Fluke spoke before elected officials about the various ways her classmates rely on prescription birth control, including a story about a friend who takes it to manage ovarian cysts.

Earlier this week, Arby's and Proactiv both publicly confirmed their ads would no longer run during Limbaugh's show.
