Rush Limbaugh, the 70-year-old radio host who lost his battle to lung cancer earlier this week, will continue to be heard over the airwaves.

Limbaugh's radio show, which held the title for most listeners in the United States reaching over 20 million monthly subscribers, will be broadcast from noon to 3 p.m. on weekdays.

"No one can replace Rush Limbaugh," said senior vice president of affiliate marketing for Premiere Networks, Hosea Belcher.

Old clips of "The Rush Limbaugh Show" will be broadcast "until his audience is prepared to say goodbye," Premiere Networks said.

The conservative icon's death brought about an outpouring of support from prominent political figures.

"There are no words to adequately capture the man that was Rush Limbaugh," said Fox News host Laura Ingraham. "Even though we knew this day was coming, typing the word 'was' in reference to him seems horribly wrong, an impossibility. Millions of us have relied on his wisdom and perspective for decades, and many of us cannot imagine another election without hearing his voice."

Conservative radio host Mark Levin said Limbaugh was a "tremendous patriot of this country."

"He refused to accept the attacks that came against this country from within," Levin said. "He refused to accept the ideological changes in this country. He defended the traditions of this country, and he spoke for tens of millions of us."
