Controversial Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Dies 1 Year After Advanced Lung Cancer Diagnosis


Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, 70, has died after receiving an advanced lung cancer diagnosis one year ago.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh died at the age of 70, after receiving a lung cancer diagnosis in February 2020.

During his nationally syndicated radio show back in October, Limbaugh had announced that his stage 4 lung cancer had progressed in “the wrong direction.”

“It's tough to realize that the days where I do not think I'm under a death sentence are over,” Limbaugh said at the time his disease had worsened. “Now, we all are, is the point. 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.”

Limbaugh was the host of “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” a nationally syndicated radio program, for 32 years.

“No words ... I just got news the Rush Limbaugh has passed away. Thanks Rush for all you taught, gave and were. A hero to many. An icon. A patriot. A revolutionary that saved radio. Heavens gain, our loss,” fellow conservative media personality Glenn Beck tweeted.
