Time for Rush Limbaugh's show
to look toward the future again

Original Article

I loved the Rush Limbaugh show.(Snip)The show serves a purpose--a purpose that we need fulfilled more now than ever. Unfortunately, it is not serving that purpose fully now. Rather than building on his legacy, we are wallowing in the sadness of his loss.(Snip)The radio show was never about the past; it was about the urgency of the present and the future. The show is an enormous asset to its owners and to America.(Snip)Rush always said he didn't want it "to be all about him.”(Snip)The owners are frittering away the fruits of all his work.

In due time. I think this is more about getting the right successor than getting somebody on the job right away. Look at how Coast to Coast AM imploded after the Art Bell era. The show is saddled with a lemon.

He was an institution. It is natural to have a grieving period. I don't listen very often, but when I do, I hear some Rush clip that is just as relevant today as it was many years ago. There are more than three decades worth of material to draw upon and it can be spliced into new programs until a new, dynamic host with a sense of humor can be found.

This household appreciates the rotation of guest hosts and suspects that may be exactly what Rush wanted—to give a variety of conservative hosts the opportunity to keep Americans informed with the truth from a variety of conservative perspectives. Rush cannot be replaced and the guest hosts are well aware of and respect that reality; however, Rush’s compassionate, magnanimous, nurturing persona suggests that he would want these rotating conservative voices to be heard for their own observations and prognostications—a forward-thinking benefactor’s legacy to keep America strong and other conservative voices the means of fulfilling his lifetime’s ambition. Rush will not be forgotten and using clips of his “talent on loan from God” interspersed from time to time would be not only appropriate, but welcome.

Please listen to this author! "Give us the Limbaugh Institute for the Advancement of Conservative Studies" already. We want Styne and we want Mrs L to be in charge of publishing: the Limbaugh Letter and kids' book franchise. Let Rush's influence animate the conservative base, which HE defined and built, deal with saving our country going forward.

I agree 100%. The only upside is that I no longer arrange my daily schedule around that 3-hour bloc every morning. Quit listening because I wasn't learning anything. Nothing fresh. No more keen insight or prescience.

Rush understood liberals dead to rights, backwards and forwards and every which way. His good humor didn’t allow him to be as blunt as he could have been but nothing they did surprised him. He was not, however, prone to sharing prescriptions about what to do about them apart from political processes. Some things he said towards the end of his life led me to think that he recognized this fact and was concerned that more had not been accomplished to rout them out of public life. A reasonable replacement for Rush’s time slot would be someone, another man, who will be sensible but fearless in leading a way out of the morass we are in. We need a plan and a road map. Someone formidable like Donald Trump but less bumptious. Some names that immediately come to mind for whom God could loan to loan talent: David Webb, Allen West, Mark Steyn and James Woods. There are probably more. No one will ever take Rush Limbaugh’s place but maybe now we need a change of focus on the movement which that great, brilliant, engaging and fearless man began.

I agree completely. EIB has become Eulogy In Broadcasting. The rotation of guest hosts should be dealing with current issues head on, not with a shrink-to-fit connection to Rush. It's time to gently and respectfully let go, and focus on the future.

A big resounding YES!!! We tried to listen the other morning. Rush was always right on point. Current. These replays sound like a lazy way to keep the show itself going until they come up with another idea. Rush is up there saying “get on with it!!!!"

There probably will never be another Limbaugh. He was an all time favorite. Coming in 2nd was Paul Harvey with his unique News and comments. Mr. Harvey was also an icon in his own right. The Armed Force radio network carried his show, I listened to him when I vacation in Europe in the early 70's

To me, the only replacement that would keep me listening daily is Mark Steyn. The other ones are ok, but only Steyn would have me looking forward to listening. I loved Rush Limbaugh and his death was a great blow to me, but I agree with Leann Horrocks' article.

Mark Steyn is great. I think he has been offered a show of his own before but I'm guessing he did not want to be tied to that fixed schedule. He would probably be the best replacement on the EIB network, but no one will match Rush.

Give the folks there a break. Rush's body hasn't spent much time at room (or ground) temperature. Making decisions in haste will spell a quick ruin for what is a very profitable venture for the Limbaugh family and its partners (be they staff, syndicators, local affiliates, advertisers, etc.). Some day, the memories of Rush will fade and we'll live with an occasional rememberance of his wit and wisdom. But time is needed to determine who is the best fit for the 12-3 time slot and the continued success of that franchise. It might be Todd Herman, he's been spending a bunch of time behind the EIB Golden Microphone. I tend to like Mark Steyn, but as another poster said, does Mark have the interest in being tied down to a regular schedule. Look to how Jeopardy is dealing with the loss of Alex Tribec, not a perfect comparison, but it's one that they are taking their time. Those that Rush left behind to continue the program would be wise to follow that lead.

When the star dies, the show goes, too. Paul Harvey presents a good example. So do Lawrence Welk and Ed Sullivan...both of whom are available for nostalgia seekers on obscure channels. Rush gave his all. And now there is a three hour block of radio programming to fill. It won't be by Rush, nor will it be the Rush Limbaugh Show.

I find it hard to believe that, with full knowledge of his fate, Rush and his team didn't develop a plan to keep his show moving forward. On today's live Q&A show, Mark Steyn stated that his show with Kathryn was the last time he will be hosting Rush's show. He said his connection was with Rush personally and he can't feel comfortable with the corporate entity that controls EIB, especially after the disaster he experienced with the CRTV venture.

Oberlin College issues $80 million in climate bonds 13 replies

OBERLIN — Investors bought $80 million in bonds last week to finance Oberlin College’s four-year geothermal energy conversion project. Following Stanford University, the Lorain County-based college is now the second higher education institution in the United States and third in the world to make use of Certified Climate Bonds for campus construction projects. The green financing avenue can only be used for projects that align with the Paris Climate Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to less than 2 degrees Celsius compared to temperatures before the age of industrialization.
