RIP Rush Limbaugh

Conservatism was handed a major blow...perhaps even a crippling one with the passing of Rush Limbaugh today.  He was the greatest at what he did, and nobody will ever fill the void that he left.  I'm very sad.

Even if Trump were to be revealed as the Dark Lord of the Sith, he's still better than the last four presidents we've had.

He was the defining voice for conservative punditry, or perhaps all political punditry regardless of leaning, in the modern era.  For me, he defined conservative politics of the 1990s when i listened to him the most.  He had such a command of the issues and the English language as well.  He was clear and concise - just an all around great communicator.  RIP.

Looks like Premier has filled the slot.

I noticed that.  Surprising.  I follow Buck Sexton a bit on Twitter so I'm familiar with him, but I never thought of him as a big-name conservative.  As for Clay Travis, that's kind of odd.  He's a sports guy, and can be kind of crass.  He might lean to the right but I have never heard of him described as a "conservative".  Have no idea why he'd be chosen to inherit the reins from Rush. 

Also, I thought I had heard that Bongino was already given the job?  I guess I heard wrong.

My guess is that Clay and Buck will last a few years before the time slot morphs into something else, kind of like what happened post-Larry King on CNN.

Bongino must not be covering all of the radio stations then.

I just read an article in the WSJ which said Bongino actually did take over Rush's spot in markets carried by Westwood One (many major cities), which Sexton/Travis are being carried by Premiere Networks.  It also looks like some individual markets have their own programming (e.g. Erick Erickson).

I'm not familiar enough to understand how the radio networks operate, but it looks like it the major change is that instead of one giant conservative personality broadcast at the same time from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m., it's a patchwork of conservative personalities.  Kind of like what happened in the Hellenistic world after the death of Alexander.

An army of conservatives could not equal the content Rush put out in 3 hours everyday.
