(RepublicanReport.com) – Rush Limbaugh has been one of the most prominent conservative voices in the media for decades. Born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, he’s worked in radio since the 1970s, and he has never been afraid to court controversy when defending his beliefs.
Sadly, Limbaugh received a lung cancer diagnosis earlier this year. In October, he revealed that his disease had progressed “in the wrong direction” and was at stage 4.
In a statement he released on Tuesday, December 15, he stated his intention to continue working on his radio show as much as possible. However, he will need to take days off sporadically in order to undergo treatment or rest.
Despite the fact he did not have better news to share regarding his condition, Limbaugh remained positive. He expressed his gratitude to his many listeners for their “understanding,” and reminded them that he would be taking his journey “day-by-day.”
An Illustrious Career
Rush Limbaugh has worked on radio stations across America since 1971. Never afraid to push boundaries, he left numerous stations before he began hosting the Rush Limbaugh Show in New York in 1988. It soon became the top-rated chat show on radio, attracting 20 million weekly listeners.
He has also written two best-sellers, The Way Things Ought to Be and See, I Told You So, as well as a number of children’s books. Donald Trump awarded Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom during the State of the Union event in February 2020.
Rush Limbaugh has, for a long time, been a breath of fresh air in the political commentary community. He has never been afraid to stand up for what he believes or challenge those he feels are pushing America in the wrong direction. We wish him the best in his battle against cancer and pray he will be around to fight the good fight for some time to come.
