Conservative commentator, podcast show host, and Fox News contributor Dan Bongino will be launching a new three-hour radio program that will air Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET, running in Rush Limbaugh’s former time slot.
It will launch on May 24 nationwide.
Bongino will continue to host his existing and very popular podcast.
Cumulus Media’s Westwood One made the announcement on Thursday, March 18.
From Westwood One’s press release: “‘The Dan Bongino Show’ will tackle the hot political issues, debunking both liberal and Republican establishment rhetoric. As a former Secret Service agent and NYPD officer, Bongino is uniquely positioned to provide commentary and analysis that directly questions the philosophical underpinnings of both the Left and Big Government Republicans.”
The release went on to say: “Bongino has attracted an impressive and loyal following since he left the Secret Service in 2011 and became a media personality. Over the past 10 years, he has earned a spot on The New York Times’ bestseller list several times and has joined FOX News as a commentator. Bongino’s podcast has risen to the top of the charts; in 2020, the podcast was downloaded more than 117 million times. In the weeks following the election in November, it ranked either #1 or #2 among ALL podcasts on Apple.”

In a statement, Bongino called the development of his new radio show “an incredible privilege, and I pledge to honor the trailblazing work of those who came before me.”
As “The Dan Bongino Show” noted on Thursday in an article about the development, “The Dan Bongino podcast is currently the second most listened to conservative show in the country, and the move into talk radio will bring over a newer audience (podcast listeners) to the platform.”
