I'm sure their are plenty of no-names who are really good, and the radio people probably know. Guys like the young Mike Pence (though I have no idea how entertaining he was,) who I assume was not well-known on a national level before he went into politics. I would think they would have a rotating system of guests until they identify which one gets the most listeners. Similar to what Fox seems to be doing now with their "Primetime" show.

I think Ben Shapiro would be much better than Dan Bongino, but even Shapiro sometimes gets caught up in his Shtick, and probably does not appeal to as wide an audience as Limbaugh did because of his fast-pace style.

Mark Steyn also seems like a better choice to me.

There are a lot of no names that are excellent, but the syndicate (is that what it's called)? doesn't want to start from scratch. Many people won't tune in without name recognition.

He's not prime time material anyway. Just not the right style. You need to have really wide appeal

Agreed. Hes filled in for the great Rush many times. Although there is no replacement for the man with the nicotine stained fingers behind the golden microphone.

Levin is always angry & bitter. Rush knew how to chill & have a good time. I cant think of any good replacement. Whenever there were guest hosts filling in I'd be done before the first break.

Nobody will be Rush. The only question is who is second best.

We forgot to mention the most obvious replacement, which leaves me perplexed as to why anyone else was even considered. Heshy Tishler.

Could actually work once they transplant the other half of Rushs brain that was always tied behind his back.

Why not the jobless guy at the other end of the Palm Beach strip, The former President himself?? He'd love doing daily rally talk.
Would be the most fun radio host. If former mayor Rudi can, perhaps former president Trump can too.

Most of them stinks. DJT is one I would actually enjoy listening to. Win win scenario.
