Clay Travis and Buck Sexton to Take Over Rush Slot
|RADIO ONLINE | Thursday, May 27, 2021|
The replacements for the "Rush Limbaugh Show" have been announced. Conservative talkers Clay Travis and Buck Sexton will take over the late Limbaugh's three-hour time slot (Noon-3pm ET) according to distributor Premiere Networks.
Listeners can expect similar conservative, right-wing fare, tackling news stories of the day, politics and current events, peppered with call-ins from listeners and humor. Premiere Networks hopes the younger voices will bring something new to talk radio, while also continuing on in Mr. Limbaugh's legacy. Slated to debut on June 21, the new program will be called "The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show."
"I've loved spending the past six years building 'Outkick The Coverage' into one of the most-listened-to sports talk shows in the country, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to join Buck Sexton as we launch this new program in the most coveted timeslot in the talk format," said Travis. "While no one will ever replace Rush Limbaugh, Buck and I are excited to continue advancing the causes he held dear, most importantly American exceptionalism, a fervent embrace of capitalism, and a belief in a robust marketplace of ideas.
"I could not be more thrilled - and am deeply humbled - by the opportunity to host this new program with Clay Travis," said Sexton. "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."
"We couldn't be happier to have Clay and Buck - two incredibly talented personalities from our Premiere family - at the helm of this new program," said Premiere Networks President Julie Talbott. "Rush Limbaugh is irreplaceable, but we're confident they will continue his legacy by delivering their own brand of intelligent, informed and entertaining talk radio, while providing our partners with a powerful platform to connect with their consumers."
"The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show" will also be available as a podcast on the iHeartRadio Podcast Network.
