Rush Limbaugh has died at age 70.

Fox News:

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 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.

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.

“Rush Limbaugh: Thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country,” President Trump said during the address.

    I was just pulling into my parking space when his wife came on the air and announced he had died. Even when you know something is going to happen it can be a shock when it does. Rest in Peach, Rush.

    I’ve started to post a number of times on these threads and each time I welled up and it was just too much. My dad got me started listening to him and I never stopped.
    Rush was a legend and his loss makes the recent political happenings all the more painful.

    We will miss you, Rush. Thank you for everything you did for us.
