WOW!!!!! I LOVE Mark Steyn. This is one time I wish I could record radio.

I may have to join the EIB Network just to hear that show.

Cool, if he's half as good at radio as he is at writing, I'll definitely enjoy that.

I listen to Rusty Humphreys at night and he sometimes lets Bob Dornan sub for him, Dornan needs to stay away from radio........

Really? WOW! I like his thinking and style of writing. Should be interesting to see how it translates to radio.

You can, I do it every day. Get a $10 cassette-radio (from the dreaded Walmart), tune to your EIB station and hit record. 2 hour cassettes are available. You could even use a light timer so the radio turns on at home automatically with the record buttons already depressed (some units won't allow this). Got to go, have to switch tape sides to get the first hour of Mark Belling.

Steyn is great and Rush needed to add a new member to the replacement lineup.

Steyn's articles are great. I'm sure he's a hell of a lot better than Mark Belling.

Wow, I've never heard Mark Steyn (just read him). I like Roger Hedgecock the best after Rush, but of course, nobody is equal to Rush. Still, I'm really looking forward to hearing Mark Steyn tomorrow. Thanks for posting this!

B-1 Bob has subbed for Rush, I believe - I know he had his own show for a time. He, uh, rambles. Cannot seem to otganize his thinking

Steyn is a great get for sub...2 days I hope? I bet his ratings fare a lot better than when the usual suspect host the show!

This is AWESOME news. Steyn is way way up there with Rush in terms of influence IMO

This should be good. It would seem to go against Rush's usual practice of having Guest Hosts who do not approach the wit and intelligence of The Host.

Have no fear. He has been great on C-Span and on interviews with Hugh Hewitt.

I think this will be a breakout for Mark Steyn, the heavily praised pundit by FR.

He's often interviewed on Bennett's show and Hewitt's, and he's just like he is in print: on target, colorful & insightful, funny!

I listen to Rusty if I get off work in time. He handles libs better than Hanitty does. He listens to what they have to say and tries to get them to think. He doesn't cut them off and call them names...until they prove they're beyond rational thinking. He's also very funny!

Can't wait to hear Mark tomorrow!

I was wondering the same thing. I didn't know he was interested in radio hosting. I've heard him as a guest on several radio programs.

Yeah, and this means I'll have to listen to a day Rush doesn't host.

Steyn, Barone..there are a few guys like that that are a cut above. I am kind of surprised Steyn hasn't done so before now, given his segments with Hewitt.

I know Steyn has been a guest on radio before but I don't know if he's ever hosted. He's certainly bright and witty. I enjoy most of his political columns. It's a little different, though, when you are hosting a show as opposed to being a guest.

Best EIB guest host to date: much depends on taste here but I'd go with Tony Snow.

Worst EIB guest host to date: Chris Matthews (yes, it really happened - what was Rush thinking?).

If you haven't yet, Read Mark Steyn speech at Hillsdale college about the UN.
(Hillsdale.edu).
He positively lacerates them.
Good stuff.

I've heard Mark on the radio as a regular contributor to the Hugh Hewitt show, and he's always spot on target, and every bit as clever 'live' as he is on paper. Hosting a show is a bit different, but I'm quite sure that he's up to the task, and I won't miss it...
