Premiere Networks, the syndication company that distributes The Rush Limbaugh Show, announced they will use guests hosts for the foreseeable future. The news comes less than a week after a rival syndicator announced that Dan Bongino was sliding into the coveted midday time slot.
“No one can replace Rush Limbaugh,” Premiere said. “And Premiere Networks will continue to provide millions of loyal listeners with the voice of Rush for the long term,” the network said in a statement.
Limbaugh passed away on Feb. 17 after a year-long battle with lung cancer. At the time of his death, Limbaugh’s show was being broadcast on 600 radio stations. His show remains the most listened to in the United States, according to Nielsen Audio.
Last week, Cumulus Media’s Westwood One announced The Dan Bongino Show, a new three-hour radio program airing Monday-Friday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET. The news and opinion show will launch May 24 in markets nationwide.
His 30 years of audio has been archived and cataloged by subject, topic and opinion, Premiere said.
