Right-wing USA talk radio host Rush Limbaugh dead at 70

Rush Limbaugh, known for his conservative radio show, passed away on Wednesday, his wife confirmed.

The right-wing radio personality, whose impact on the GOP's more extreme messaging in the U.S. is well-documented, died due to complications from lung cancer. The host announced he had stage 4 lung cancer in February 2020.

"This is not good news, but what is good news is that he is the greatest fighter and victor that you will ever meet".

At the time, former President Donald Trump said Limbaugh's cancer diagnosis was not good news, but added, "What is good news is that he is the greatest fighter and victor that you will ever meet".

Limbaugh began his nationally syndicated "Rush Limbaugh Show" in 1988, and at that moment began to reshape the Republican Party and the conservative movement.

"It's tough to realize that the days where I do not think I'm under a death sentence are over. We all know that we're going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it".

Unflinchingly conservative, Limbaugh was one of the most powerful voices on the American right who galvanized listeners for more than 30 years with his talent for vituperation and sarcasm. Given how timeless and insightful Rush's commentary is his producers will be able to pull segments that are relevant for each day's news cycle and allow us to feature the best of Rush for the full three hours of the program.
