While advertisers flee his radio show, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh is poised to be added to the Hall of Famous Missourians in the state Capitol.

Inductees are chosen by the speaker of the Missouri House. Speaker Steven Tilley said Monday he decided to honor Limbaugh months ago. The Republican lawmaker and Limbaugh are both from the state's southeastern corner.

Limbaugh's show has lost nine advertisers since he referred last week to a female law student involved in the national debate about insurance for contraception as a "slut" and "prostitute." Limbaugh has since apologized.

Tilley is defending his choice, saying Limbaugh is among the world's best-known radio personalities. Tilley also says the hall honors famous Missourians — not "universally loved Missourians."
