There's no replacing a legend, only continuing the work they did that made them a legend. Saying that, good luck to Buck Sexton and Clay Travis! 

The pair will be taking the time slot of the late, great conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, with the "Rush Limbaugh Show" becoming "The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show," which will begin on June 21.

Travis is a 42-year-old political commentator and founder of the wildly popular sports commentary website. Fans can see his daily takes that he posts on the OutKick YouTube channel as well.

Sexton, 39, is a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officer and counterterrorism expert, who is a regular political contributor on news and entertainment programs that run the ideological gamut.

Both understand that Limbaugh's radio presence isn't something that can easily be replaced. Travis and Sexton know that they have to carve out their own niche while establishing their own connection to the audience in a way that only Limbaugh knew how to do.

"Rush's connection with his audience is one of the primary legacies of his show," Travis said. "I also think Buck and I have the unique ability to offer a perspective that many people in their 20s and 30s are desperate to hear."

"The most dominant talk radio hosts have been from one generation; Clay and I represent the next phase," Sexton said, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. "We're going to bring the perspective of two guys who see a country they're deeply worried about, and a massive audience that needs people who will speak for them."

Limbaugh was that voice who spoke for millions for so many years. Travis again understands that the radio legend's message is one that needs to endure.

"While no one will ever replace Rush Limbaugh, Buck and I are excited to continue advancing the causes he held dear," Travis said.

Limbaugh died on February 17 at the age of 70 following a year-long battle with Stage IV lung cancer.
