“The Rush Limbaugh Show” will remain on the air in its regular time slot for the time being until listeners are “prepared to say goodbye.”
Conservative icon Rush Limbaugh had been battling advanced lung cancer for over a year and died Wednesday at the age of 70, leaving the fate of his beloved talk radio show up in the air.
Premiere Network said in a memo that the show will continue to air in its regular noon to 3 p.m. time slot using archived segments and clips primarily with Limbaugh’s voice, “until his audience is prepared to say goodbye,” The Wall Street Journal reported.
“No one can replace Rush Limbaugh,” senior vice president Hosea Belcher said.
Guest hosts like Mark Steyn, Todd Herman and Ken Matthews will help with new segments addressing the day’s news.
