Conservative radio hosts Buck Sexton and Clay Travis are slated to take over the late Rush Limbaugh's time slot on Premier Networks, the distributor of the show announced Thursday.

"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," Julie Talbott, president of iHeartMedia Inc.’s Premiere Networks, said Thursday, according to The Wall Street Journal.

"The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show" begins at noon ET starting June 21.

"Rush's connection with his audience is one of the primary legacies of his show," Travis said. "I also think Buck and I have the unique ability to offer a perspective that many people in their 20s and 30s are desperate to hear."

Sexton tweeted: "get ready for it, America."

Limbaugh, a leader in conservative thought and media, died Feb. 17 from complications from stage-four lung cancer. He was 70. His show was first syndicated in 1988, and by the end of 2020 had more than 20 million monthly listeners.
