There will never be another Rush Limbaugh. He was a once in a lifetime talent.
However, the slot that was left open on the radio is going to go to another great conservative talker.
Dan Bongino is set to take on the Noon to 3 pm slot.
PJ Media reports:
Rush Limbaugh Cannot Be Replaced, But This Radio Host Will Take His Three-Hour Slot
No one could replace the greatest conservative radio host of all time, Rush Limbaugh. However, someone had to take the GOAT’s radio slot, and Cumulus Media’s Westwood One announced that conservative commentator Dan Bongino has answered the call.
“The Dan Bongino Show” will air on the radio Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern, Westwood One announced in a press release.
Bongino did not pretend that he was replacing Rush Limbaugh, but he did tip his hat to the GOAT by pledging to honor “the trailblazing work of those who came before me.”
“I’m excited to embrace the immense power of radio to connect with my listeners live for three hours every day,” Bongino said in a statement. “This is an incredible privilege, and I pledge to honor the trailblazing work of those who came before me.”
“Dan is passionate and relatable, with a natural ability to connect with his audience,” Suzanne Grimes, president of Westwood One and executive vice president of Cumulus media, said in the statement. “Dan has been on a meteoric rise since his podcast launched in 2019, and we look forward to watching his star continue to soar.”
This is great news.
