Rush Limbaugh’s timeslot taken over by Clay Travis and Buck Sexton next month after radio host’s lung cancer death

RUSH Limbaugh’s timeslot will be taken over by Clay Travis and Buck Sexton next month after the radio host’s tragic cancer death earlier this year.

The pair will host the debut episode of “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show” on June 21 from noon ET.

However, iHeartMedia President Julie Talbott said that the late radio star’s show would not be replaced.

“We’re not going to replace Rush Limbaugh, we’re going to have an evolution of the show with fresh voices – those that grew up on Rush and admired him,” Talbott said.

Speaking of the new opportunity, Travis, 42, said that the pair have “the unique ability to offer a perspective that many people in their 20s and 30s are desperate to hear” before paying tribute to Limbaugh.

“Rush’s connection with his audience is one of the primary legacies of his show,” Travis said.

The pair have both had experience on the radio, with Travis having hosted a Fox Sports Radio show since 2016, and Sexton, 39, having a three-hour self-titled weekday evening show.

“The most dominant talk radio hosts have been from one generation; Clay and I represent the next phase,” Sexton said.

“We’re going to bring the perspective of two guys who see a country they’re deeply worried about, and a massive audience that needs people who will speak for them.”

The news of the takeover comes just three months after Limbaugh’s tragic cancer death.

Limbaugh‘s wife, Kathryn, confirmed the devastating news at the beginning of his morning show on February 17.

Rush will forever be the greatest of all time. Rush was an extraordinary man. A gentle giant. Brilliant, quick-witted, genuinely kind,” she said.

“Extremely generous. Passionate. Courageous. And the hardest working person I know.”

“From today on, there will be a tremendous void in our lives, and on the radio.”

Kathryn continued: “Rush encouraged so many of us to think for ourselves. To learn and to lead. He often said it did not matter where you started or what you look like, as Americans we all have endless opportunities like nowhere else in the world.”

She also thanked “each and every one of you who prayed” for Rush while he was battling cancer on behalf of their family.

“In Rush’s honor, may we all continue Rush’s mission in our individual lives and communities. I know all of you listening are terribly sad. We all are. I’m terrible sorry to have to deliver this news to you. God bless you Rush. And God bless our country.”

The show then played Ray Charles’ version of America The Beautiful, as opposed to Limbaugh’s traditional theme.
