As his fans are all too aware, Rush Limbaugh announced Feb. 3, that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.
The following night, during the State of the Union address, President Trump awarded the obviously surprised Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom, (brief video) which First Lady Melania Trump seated beside him, placed around his neck. The president thanked the radio host for his longtime charity work and “decades of tireless devotion to our country.”
Rush Limbaugh’s influence was immediate from his first nationally syndicated show August 1, 1988. He paved the way for conservative talk radio to lead on AM radio.
It is with our profound gratitude to Limbaugh’s impact on the thinking of so many that we direct our readers to, “What Rush Limbaugh’s life says about eternity,” by Richard Jack Rail. The author says of Rush Limbaugh, “He has pointed millions of Americans back to the path we ought never have left.” According to EIB (Excellence in Broadcasting) the number is 43 million daily.
Watch the opening of his Dec. 23 show, the last of this year, as he wishes “Merry Christmas everybody…I love you all.”
His grateful audience loves him back and wishes him and his wife, Kathryn, a Merry Christmas and many blessings in return.
