Rush is irreplaceable. One-of-a-kind and all conservative media agree.

I've been a Buck Sexton listener since his first Blaze days... his Saturday show (Testudio/Shields High/Commie Bear etc.) and IMO he's a great guy to attempt to fill the timeslot. Smart, opinionated, fast on his feet, excellent at extemperaneous speech. He's partnered for this effort, but he could do a one man show without guests if necessary.

The King is Dead, Long Live the King.

He singlehandedly took AM radio out of the dustbin and turned it into a Conservative powerhouse. Progressives move on to the latest greatest technology. Conservatives see value regardless of hype. Long Live Rush.

From what I recall, he became such a juggernaut it just became sheer economics - if you didn't have him in that slot on your station, you might as well not exist during those hours. And advertisers fought to get his slot, because it could make or break local business.

He had a hell of a run. Iconic run. Historical run - his name will be remembered.

Even if you had a dad more importantly if you didn’t Rush was a guide for life and kept many men on the right path.
Always humbled and appreciative for what he had and how people loved him. A total gem worthy of signing the original Declaration of Independence but his place in time was even more important. His ability to see through the BS is applicable to so many facets not just politics. It’s a recipe for knowing who you are as a human and being able to deal with the lost masses. I love to hear his voice even still when they do segments with the guest hosts. I hope they have a reference library that’s easily searchable on any subject for generations into eternity.

It’s not just him, but his brilliant and patriotic callers. I’d say that’s the best part of his show, the conversation with his listeners, the most informed and insightful audience. He didn’t make interviews with celebrity guests who were already on ten other radio shows and/or podcasts, he talked with us!

Yeah, I would agree - and from what I remember, it was how he dealt with nasty callers, too, which he got a lot of, early on. How he dealt with them with humor and intelligence. The only time I remember him letting a caller getting to him was over his father's death, but he shook it off pretty fast.

He’s a trailblazer. He created the format of talk show radio. Before him there was just news flash and music on the radio.

He would say he had “talent in loan from God” with a wink and a nudge. Fact is, it was the honest truth.

Rest in peace Rush.

One vote for Jesse Kelly here. He's the man!

Mark Steyn could be Rush's successor but nobody can truly replace Maha Rushi

When Rush announced he had cancer, I hoped he would have transitioned Steyn into that slot.

Suckitreddit 12 points ago +12 / -0

I didn’t think Steyn wanted to do it. Doing 15 hours of radio a week is a full time job... but Steen is my favorite show host—really gets free speech as he had been fighting for it in Canada for a decade w Maclean’s magazine and the global warming BS.

Bongino took his afternoon slot with his own radio show.

So did Buck Sexton. I like both.

I know, I think he was a good pick, but I would like to hear more of Steyn.

None of those guys have Rush’s personality. The only one I’ve found that comes close is Quite Frankly, way more chill, and different personality, but Frank gets the format where the other guys are just soapboxing.

I like what Mark Steyn says it’s his British accent that gets me,he should clean up The Queens land and not criticize Americans.

rush was great and one of the greatest of all time in all media.

but i miss the days of rush before his huge contract in the late 1990s when he was making jokes and winking at us with the clinton body count like vince foster and commerce secretary ron brown. he was pretty out there like alex jones until that huge contract that pushed him to dial it back on the clinton body count and other 'conspiracy theories'.

He had his unique talent, which is that he understood his callers and he could articulate their ideas. He got them. He knew what they wanna express.
