Long Time Conservative Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Has Died

Talk Show Radio Host Rush Limbaugh has died at the age of 70 due to complications of Lung Cancer.  His wife, Kathryn Adams Limbaugh began his radio broadcast today with the sad news.

Rush Limbaugh was born on January 12, 1951, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  After breaking into a radio career in the 1970s, Limbaugh was fired for being too controversial as a news commentator. However, by 1984, he had become the top radio host in Sacramento, California. Limbaugh’s greatest success came in August 1988, when The Rush Limbaugh Show (nationally syndicated from New York City by the ABC Radio Network) premiered. Known for its heavy political focus and sometimes extreme conservative slant, The Rush Limbaugh Show has been on the air for more than three decades. It has been part of our station for several years.

We here at NewsTalk 987 WOKI want to extend our deepest condolences to Mr. Limbaugh’s family and friends and many loyal listeners.

Rush’s wife, Kathryn, announces his passing.
