TheBlaze’s very own Buck Sexton is filling in for “America’s anchorman” Rush Limbaugh while he is away on Friday. It will be Sexton’s first time sitting behind the “golden EIB microphone” (though, technically, he will be broadcasting from New York).

“If you told me when I started doing radio in 2013 that by 2014 I would be sitting in for Rush Limbaugh, I would have laughed,” Sexton told TheBlaze. “Today, it is happening, and what would have sounded like a joke then is the realization of a dream now. I couldn’t be more excited, or more thankful, for the opportunity.”​
