Read The Most Touching Tributes To Broadcast Legend Rush Limbaugh – By Tristan Justice (The Federalist) / Feb 17 2021
Legendary conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh died of lung cancer at age 70, his family announced Wednesday.
Garnering an audience of more than 15 million listeners each week, Limbaugh transformed talk radio as a titan of the industry, becoming an indispensable voice of the conservative movement. In 2015, Limbaugh was one of few voices on the right to take President Donald Trump’s candidacy seriously in the beginning, helping to catapult Trump’s rise from a reality television New York businessman all the way to the White House.
First Lady Melania Trump presented Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the Republican president’s final State of the Union address last year, one day after the radio host revealed his diagnosis with advanced-stage lung cancer.
“Thank you for your decades of devotion to our country,” Trump said in the prime time address.
