[Steven Nelson] Rush Limbaugh died Wednesday after a year-long battle with cancer.
Limbaugh’s death at age 70 was announced Wednesday on his influential conservative radio program, by his wife Kathryn.
Limbaugh announced last February that he was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer.
“I know that I am most certainly not the Limbaugh that you tuned in to listen to today. I, like you, very much wish Rush was behind this golden microphone right now, welcoming you to another exceptional three hours of broadcasting,” his wife told listeners in a surprise noon announcement on his radio show.
“For over 32 years. Rush has cherished you, loyal audience, and always looked forward to every single show. It is with profound sadness I must share with you directly that our beloved Rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning due to complications from lung cancer.”
Kathryn Limbaugh said, “as so many of you know, losing a loved one is terribly difficult, even more so when that loved one is larger than life.”
