Rush Limbaugh, the talk titan who made right-wing radio financially viable in American media and himself a Republican kingmaker years before Fox News has died, after he revealed in 2020 that his lung cancer was terminal.

Limbaugh's radio show spawned a self-titled TV series as well, which aired in syndication from 1992 to 1996.

His wife Kathryn announced the death today on his radio show.

As a longtime syndicated broadcaster and a forceful personality in political discourse, Limbaugh held significant media influence as a champion for conservatives and a nemesis for progressives.

Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Trump during Trump's State of the Union speech in February 2020, in recognition of his "decades of tireless devotion to our country", Trump said. Mark Levin joined later, mourning Limbaugh as a "tremendous patriot" and "we lost a voice like no other". "He was really a believer in the First Amendment, over anything that might be canceled as long as it was true".

There was a similar outpouring of grief for Limbaugh on Twitter, where many conservatives offered their somber farewells.
