Rush Limbaugh, legendary conservative talk radio host of the nationally syndicated Rush Limbaugh Show, has died at age 70 after a battle with lung cancer.
Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, made the painful announcement on his radio show this morning.
Limbaugh was being treated with Stage IV lung cancer, a diagnosis he learned of in January 2020. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Trump at the State of the Union address days later.
The Rush Limbaugh Show was broadcast daily on KTTH from 9 a.m. to noon. It debuted in 1988 on a handful of AM radio stations across the country, reports Fox News.
Limbaugh first announced he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer in February 2020 on his show.
