Rush Limbaugh’s Replacements Made a Surprising Confession About Their New Show
When Rush Limbaugh passed away it left a giant void in conservative media.
Eventually new hosts were named.
And Rush Limbaugh’s replacements made a surprising confession about their new show.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
Rush Limbaugh is one of the most important radio talk show hosts who has ever lived.
He changed the entire landscape of radio and conservative media, and gave millions of forgotten Americans a voice in media.
Limbaugh tragically passed away on February 17 at the age of 70 from stage four lung cancer. His death certificate listed his occupation as “greatest radio host of all time.”
His shoes can never be filled, but now, more than three months after his death, Limbaugh’s syndication partner has named his successors.
It will be Fox Sports personality Clay Travis and talk show host Buck Sexton. Sexton, a former CIA agent-turned-radio talk show host, will occupy his radio time slot.
“We are not replacements. Buck and I are not replacements for Rush Limbaugh,” Travis told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Travis said that they would fight the “insanity going on in this country right now,” mentioning how politics have “spiraled more and more into the cataclysmically ridiculous” and that it’s even infected sports journalism.
“I’m excited to pick up the sword and be able to swing back every single day at all the ignoramuses out there and the idiots and the nincompoops,” Travis said, promising to support the “huge number of people out there” who have to worry about losing their job if they say the wrong thing on social media.
“I think certainly we will speak for a lot of people who don’t feel like they can speak.”
“I could not be more thrilled — and am deeply humbled — by the opportunity to host this new program with Clay Travis,” said Sexton in a press release. “We think it’s important to carry on the tradition of Rush Limbaugh and bring truth to the masses. One thing I can promise all EIB listeners out there: we’re with them and we will always fight for them with the show Clay, and I do every day.”
“The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show” will début on June 21 and run from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern on radio stations affiliated with Premiere Networks.
The network promises the new show will “carry on a new form of broadcast excellence in the tradition of the late radio icon.”
“We’re not going to replace Rush Limbaugh,” said Premiere Networks President Julie Talbott. “We’re going to have an evolution of the show with fresh voices — those [who] grew up on Rush and admired him.”
