Clay Travis, Buck Sexton to fill Rush Limbaugh’s old time slot

Conservative commentators Clay Travis and Buck Sexton will take over the late Rush Limbaugh’s old time slot, Premiere Networks announced Thursday.

“The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show,” will air from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., replacing Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated program. The first episode will air Monday, June 21, CNN reported.

Mr. Travis, 42, founded Outkick in 2011 and has hosted a FOX Sports Radio show since 2016.

Mr. Sexton, 39, has hosted his syndicated program, “The Buck Sexton Show,” since 2017.

“Rush Limbaugh is irreplaceable,” Premiere Networks President Julie Talbott said in a statement obtained by The Wall Street Journal, “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.”

Limbaugh died on Feb. 17 at age 70 following a year-long battle with lung cancer. Premiere Networks had previously filled the vacant time slot with old clips from his show, CNN reported.

“I could not be more excited to step onto the biggest platform in radio with my fantastic co-host, Clay Travis,” Mr. Sexton tweeted Thursday afternoon. “We’re going to do a show that will make Rush listeners proud and bring a new generation of audience to the table.”

“Can’t wait to get rolling!” Mr. Travis tweeted.
