Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh died Wednesday after a battle with lung cancer. He was 70.
The right-wing broadcaster was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Feb. 4, one day after he announced his diagnosis.Advertisement
In his last broadcast of 2020, an emotional Limbaugh told listeners he didn’t expect to see the end of the year and was grateful he did.
“Because I have outlived the diagnosis, I’ve been able to receive and hear and process some of the most wonderful, nice things about me that I might not have ever heard had I not gotten sick,” he said. “How many people who pass away never hear the eulogies, never hear the thank-yous?”
