Dan Bongino To Take Over Rush Limbaugh's Time Slot Starting May 24

No one can replace Limbaugh. But someone does need to be on the mic from 12 to 3.

Dan Bongino is a good choice.

Cumulus Media's Westwood One announced on Wednesday that Dan Bongino will be launching a new radio show during the time slot left vacant by conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh.

The program, "The Dan Bongino Show," will broadcast 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET in select markets starting May 24, including KABC Los Angeles, WLS Chicago, WBAP Dallas, KSFO San Francisco, and WMAL Washington, D.C.

"The Dan Bongino Show will tackle the hot political issues, debunking both liberal and Republican establishment rhetoric," the press release described. "As a former Secret Service agent and NYPD officer, Bongino is uniquely positioned to provide commentary and analysis that directly questions the philosophical underpinnings of both the Left and Big Government Republicans."

A commenter said that Erick Erickson's Cvckshow would be aired during Rush's timeslot in some markets, which I take to mean "the area right around Erick Erickson's house."

That may be true. Just because Westwood One is offering this show doesn't mean that all markets will run it.

A friend with very inside knowledge of syndicated political radio tells me that many markets are just going to run local radio hosts during this timeslot.

That seems obvious. Rush Limbaugh was a phenomenon and a once-in-a-generation talent. Obviously, many more local stations are going to air his show than any other conservative broadcaster.

Anyone who gets syndicated by one third of the markets that Rush had would be a huge success.

If Dan does well in the ratings, more markets will pick him up.

I wish him luck. He's a strong conservative who actually likes conservatives -- take note, Cvcks who are forever attacking and lecturing conservatives -- and he seems like a good guy.

I also wish him good health. Bongino was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, which he says is treatable. He recently had a mass detected in his lung, but, fortunately, it turned out to not be a tumor.
