Outkick reports that Dan Bongino is poised to sign a contract with Westwood One airing a new live three-hour broadcast in the time slot Rush Limbaugh owned for years.
The conservative radio host, who already boasts of a top listened-to podcast, would be airing his new show between 12 and 3 p.m. Eastern.
Limbaugh dominated the airwaves at that time for decades.
Outkick conveys that the contract isn’t quite signed, “but is expected to get done barring last-minute differences.”
They note that while “no one” can replace Rush, “radio executives saw Bongino as the logical successor from 12-3.”
Limbaugh, the conservative icon, radio legend, and conscience of the Republican Party, passed away last month at the age of 70, having battled Stage IV lung cancer.
