One month after the death of radio superstar Rush Limbaugh, the scramble to replace him on air has officially begun.
Cumulus Media’s Westwood One network said Bongino will start his show May 24 at Cumulus stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington and other markets.
But as to what will happen at KMOX (1120 AM), which carried Limbaugh's show, is anybody's guess.
Entercom Communications, which owns KMOX, is not commenting about its plans to replace Limbaugh here and at 10 other Entercom stations.
One radio source did say that the company is looking at its options and a decision will be made in the coming weeks.
Currently, KMOX is running a "best-of" style of old Limbaugh shows interspersed with some live commentary.
Limbaugh's show is syndicated through Premiere Networks, which has not announced its plans.
