Rush Limbaugh Dead At 70

Rush Limbaugh Gives A Speech In Michigan

Rush Limbaugh has died at the age of 70.

Limbaugh died on Wednesday (February 17) following a lengthy battle with lung cancer. His wife, Kathryn, made the announcement during his radio show.

"I know that I am most certainly not the Limbaugh that you tuned in to listen to today," she said. "I, like you, very much wish Rush was behind this golden microphone right now, welcoming you to another exceptional three hours of broadcasting. ... 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."

Former President George Bush called Limbaugh "an indomitable spirit with a big heart."

“While he was brash, at times controversial, and always opinionated, he spoke his mind as a voice for millions of Americans and approached each day with gusto,” Bush said in a statement. “Rush Limbaugh was an indomitable spirit with a big heart, and he will be missed.”

Other media politicians and media personalities shared their condolences on Twitter. See below.
