    I know it’s trite, but it’s really the end of an era. There will never be another like him. I’m grateful to have been an off and on listener of his show since 1992. Obviously, we knew this day was coming, but it’s still shocking and sad. Just don’t have the words.

    Hey Guys, well, I agree ‘RebelSansClue’ end of an era is understatement . I listened to Rush first time in late summer 88, at lunch break in my truck at work, WFIR, sometimes taking a lite power-nap of 20 minutes .
    I drifted away from Rush from time to time, in the first decade after 2000, listened to others during that noon to 3pm eastern time slot, when I didn’t think Rush was hard enough or was a little to ‘establishment’. When he jumped on the Trump bandwagon I started listening more. Alex jones wore me out, John Gibson retired, Dennis Pregar puts me to sleep sometimes, & GB is right : If you are a fake, you will be found out. I don’t think he was fake. I would always check in on Rush and if in the car, he was on .
    I remember Fred talking years back, there is no one really on the bench after Rush and others as they age. Thats bad, we need someone now. Mitch McConnell is a turtle boy and cannot be trusted.
    I listen to John B Wells at nights now , he is live and back on terrestrial radio. ( WPMO Pascagoula ) 10pm to midnight eastern , you can listen on line with Vlan.

    I don’t know if they will trust Mark Steyn with that show, or will they move Beck to that slot ? I like Chris Plante, but he isn’t in the same professional announcer league as Limbaugh or Beck is. I listen to Plante a lot cause Beck went crazy in Obo era. I have been listening to Beck more lately , he is in his ‘wheelhouse’ on economy and that will be popular now with Joe-mentia pretending to be president and running the economy into the ground.

    we’ll see. Hope all is well guys ! Best regards for a prosperous 2021 or a ‘best we can do’ .

    A very sad day. We knew it was coming, but hoped for a miracle- as we always do when someone receives a terminal prognosis. End of an era? I hope not, but as the baby boomers age out it will be very hard to attract any critical thinking audience from upcoming generations whom are permanently addicted to watching cat videos.

    Does anyone else see the correlations between the death of Rush Limbaugh and the end of the constitutional republic? Not that they’re directly linked of course, but it certainly does contribute to that “end of days” feel we’ve been suffering through this winter.

    The past few days, I resumed listening to radio. There is not much there. Today’s announcement that iHeartRadio is acquiring Trident digital emphasizes that everything is moving to on demand podcasting. If it isn’t live, over the air radio has no purpose.

    With no obvious successor, it is probable that many AM radio stations will give up the talk format. The stations will either be sold for their land under the tower, convert to an FM music format with their FM translator, or become religious or Mexican music formats. There really is not critical mass left to fill a program schedule.
