The overwhelming majority of Rush Limbaugh’s fans have no illusions that no one in the talk radio industry can replace his combination of political wisdom, wit, humor, and analysis now or in the near future.
The truth is that no one in the conservative talk radio industry would aspire to take Rush’s spot. They understand better than anybody that it is impossible to replace a human being who is so good at what he does that he is practically irreplaceable.

Nonetheless, a talk show host will take over Limbaugh’s old time slot, 12 noon-3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the person chosen — former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent Dan Bongino — was an excellent choice.
To state the obvious, Bongino isn’t Rush Limbaugh, but he’s also not attempting to be. Bongino is Bongino, and he is as singular as he is gifted. He is politically astute, can hold his own against left-wing critics, and is well-versed in his subjects. In some ways, he’s similar to Limbaugh in that he’s a consummate professional.
According to The Western Journal, Bongino will take over Limbaugh’s old slot on Monday, and his first guest will undoubtedly attract a large audience:
In an effort to fill the gap left by late radio icon Rush Limbaugh, conservative analyst Dan Bongino will be joined by former President Donald Trump on Monday during Bongino’s first national radio broadcast.
Of course, Limbaugh, who died of lung cancer in February, will never be replaced.
Many conservatives seeking a semblance of normalcy on the radio while driving or working are in need of a lift in the absence of his booming voice and towering intellect.
“In markets such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., the show will take over the three-hour slot formerly occupied by the late great Rush Limbaugh. When the show goes live, a radio station locator will be available here on Bongino.com to assist anyone who needs assistance finding a way to listen,” the host noted on his website.
We last saw Trump and Limbaugh together in February 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic, during the former’s State of the Union Address, when Limbaugh was awarded the country’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
