Radio Icon Rush Limbaugh Dead At 70

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Talk show host Rush Limbaugh died early on Wednesday morning, according to his wife Kathryn, who made the announcement on his radio show.

Fox News reports:

Rush Limbaugh, the monumentally influential media icon who transformed talk radio and politics in his decades behind the microphone, helping shape the modern-day Republican Party, died Wednesday morning at the age of 70 after a battle with lung cancer, his family announced.

Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, made the announcement on his radio show. “Losing a loved one is terribly difficult, even more so when that loved one is larger than life,” she said. “Rush will forever be the greatest of all time.”

The radio icon learned he had Stage IV lung cancer in January 2020 and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Trump at the State of the Union address days later. First lady Melania Trump then presented America’s highest civilian honor to Limbaugh in an emotional moment on the heels of his devastating cancer diagnosis.

Limbaugh is considered one of the most influential media figures in American history and has played a consequential role in conservative politics since “The Rush Limbaugh Show” began in 1988. Perched behind his Golden EIB (Excellence in Broadcasting) Microphone, Limbaugh spent over three decades as arguably both the most beloved and polarizing person in American media.

The program that began 33 years ago on national syndication with only 56 radio stations grew to be the most listened-to radio show in the United States, airing on more than 600 stations, according to the show’s website. Up to 27 million people tuned in on a weekly basis and Limbaugh has lovingly referred to his passionate fan base as “Dittoheads,” as they would often say “ditto” when agreeing with the iconic radio host.


Limbaugh truly had a talent for what he did and there were many things he was right about. However, I must say, and this is not to tear the man down, after all, he’s not here to defend himself, but he sometimes would let things pass that Republicans did that were unlawful that he would never allow Democrats to get away with and in some measure, this was passed on to his audience. This is why many supported people like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in 2012 and even why many supported Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2016 and in 2020 despite some of their own unconstitutional behavior that had they been of the other political party, they would have been called out.

Thankfully, Tim Brown is not the standard nor is Rush Limbaugh. The Bible is the standard and in our country, the Constitution is to be the standard to limit those in our representative republic.

While we offer our condolences to Rush’s family, we must be those who are not just talkers but doers of the Word (James 1:22). Only when we get back to that and applying the law equally to all men regardless of their status, bringing about justice will we once again guard our liberty.
