Rush Limbaugh died Wednesday after a battle with lung cancer, his family has announced. He was 70 years old.
Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, made the announcement on his radio show today.
There will be time to look back at Rush’s legacy and the influence it will carry for decades to come. In short, Limbaugh is the greatest radio host to ever live. There will never be another one, and there never should be.
My thoughts from December:
Long ago, Limbaugh established his legacy as the most influential, important political voice in the country. In fact, no single personality has changed the landscape like he has. It remains a treat today to listen to Rush Limbaugh open the mic for three hours, with no guests, on a wide range of the most critical topics.
Those who knew Rush say he was an even better man.
We at OutKick send our condolences to the Limbaugh family.
