Talk radio icon and conservative legend Rush Limbaugh died Wednesday at the age of 70 following a year-long battle with Stage IV lung cancer.
According to Fox News, "Limbaugh's wife, Kathryn, made the announcement on his radio show."
A little more than a year ago, former President Donald Trump awarded Limbaugh with the highest award possible for an American civilian, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, during Trump’s last State of the Union address.
"The Rush Limbaugh Show" began in 1988, where Limbaugh became perhaps the most prominent voice in the conservative movement -- certainly the loudest at times.
Back in October 2020, Limbaugh credited his faith in Jesus Christ as the driving force in dealing and living with cancer.
"I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ,” he said. “It is of immense value, strength, and confidence. That’s why I’m able to remain fully committed to the idea that what is supposed to happen will happen when it’s meant to."
RIP, Mr. Limbaugh.
Rush was one of the most humble men I ever met. I once told him that America would have been lost but for him. He recoiled, insisting he'd done no such thing. But he did. And so America mourns a magnificent man. #RestInPeace— Brent Bozell (@BrentBozell) February 17, 2021
