Rush Limbaugh, Talk Radio Legend, Dies at 70 of Lung Cancer | Newsmax.com

Conservative icon Rush Limbaugh, who single-handedly created the era of national political talk radio and had the most listened to program in U.S. history, died Wednesday of lung cancer a year after announcing his diagnosis with the disease. He was 70.

Limbaugh's wife, Kathryn, made the announcement on his radio show.

A cultural force with a cumulative weekly radio audience of more than 20 million at his peak, an author of seven books — two of which were New York Times best sellers, and the host of a nationally syndicated TV show, Limbaugh was hailed by Republicans and conservatives and derided by Democrats and liberals.

RIP Rush.

The first time I listened to Rush was on "WABC-AM, 770 on your dial" in July of 1988 in the parking lot at Nathan's Hot Dogs on Coney Island, NY.
I have listened to him almost every day since then. He was like a kitchen table buddy that you could have a vigorous and intelligent debate with and end up liking even more afterwards.
I am 78 and I did not think he would go before me.

I will miss his wit and wisdom and all around patriotism on a daily basis.

RIP good buddy.
