The long-awaited Dan Bongino radio show debuts on more than 100 affiliates across the country on Monday. While the former Secret Service agent turned political commentator is not officially replacing Rush Limbaugh, many stations are treating this move as such. In Washington D.C., 105.9 FM WMAL will debut a new program with Mr. Bongino hosting his own talk fest beginning at 3 PM EST and running through 8 PM ET daily, while in Chicago listeners can tune into 97 WLS for their dose of conservative commentary from 6 AM to 9 AM CT every morning!
Secret Service agent turned conservative commentator Dan Bongino will be taking over the airwaves in more than 100 major markets across the country with his new radio show. While he won’t replace Rush Limbaugh as host, many stations are treating him like it. In Washington D.C., 105 WMAL is jumping on board and dumping their current format to air Bongino’s program from Monday-Friday at 4:00 PM EST while also debuting a station for Chicagoans who listeners can tune into weekdays starting at 7:00 AM CST (just remember not all of us live east of New York City).
Bongino will be interviewing former President Donald Trump for the first time on his new show. The interview is scheduled to take place in Limbaugh’s second hour of broadcast, and Premiere Networks has yet to announce whether or not they plan on continuing with guest hosts.
“Dan has been on a meteoric rise since his podcast launched in 2019, and we look forward to watching his star continue to rise,” said Suzanne Grimes, Westwood One president.
The Dan Bongino Show will air from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern the same time slot Limbaugh occupied before his death.
“I’m excited to embrace the immense power of radio to connect with my listeners live for three hours every day,” said Bongino. “This is an incredible privilege, and I pledge to honor the trailblazing work of those who came before me.”
