Today (Feb. 17) marks the one-year anniversary of the death of Rush Limbaugh so expect to hear much in the way of tributes to the talk radio trailblazer. “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show,” which succeeded Limbaugh in the noon-3pm daypart on hundreds of stations, will reflect on Limbaugh’s “way of life,” as he often described it, syndicator Premiere Networks says, and the inspiration and motivation he brought to millions of fans.
The two hosts plan to show how prescient Limbaugh was on the issues of the day, showcasing highlights and predictions from his long-running and influential program. There will also be some mining of the archives. Travis and Sexton plan to replay notable on-air moments from Limbaugh’s 30-plus year career, along with listener memories, and special appearances by family, former staff, and fellow broadcasters. Among the guests scheduled as of Wednesday evening were Limbaugh’s wife Kathryn; long-time call screener and “official show observer” James Golden (aka Bo Snerdley), frequent guest hosts Mark Steyn and Todd Herman; and national radio and TV personality Sean Hannity.
It's likely that other shows, particularly those that also now occupy the noon-3pm slot on stations that previously carried Limbaugh, will mark the occasion with tributes and remembrances. We’ll update this story with those details as they become available.
