Rush Limbaugh dies at 70 after battle with cancer


Conservative talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, has died following a battle with Stage IV lung cancer. He was 70.

Fox News reports that Limbaugh’s wife Katheryn announced his passing on his radio show.

Limbaugh has been an influential voice in politics since the start of “The Rush Limbaugh Show” in 1988. He spent over 30 years as an iconic, and sometimes controversial, voice in conservative politics and media.
