Prominent Radio Host, Rush Limbaugh, Passes on at age 70

Prominent radio host, Rush Limbaugh, died on Wednesday, February 17, after a battle with lung cancer. He was aged 70. He is well known for his daytime show, The Rush Limbaugh Show, which he started in 1988. His efforts helped the radio station to become more profitable. 

He was the conformist voice for many American generations. More so, his show spanned seven presidential administrations – Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barrack Obama, Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
Last year, he was awarded by former president Donald Trump with the Medal of Freedom. He is equally a Radio Hall of Fame member. In his remark on Limbaugh’s passing, Trump said that the late radio host was special, irreplaceable, a fantastic person with a fantastic talent. He was dubbed an inspiration of American conservatives by former Vice President Mike Pence.

Limbaugh was a formidable author of numerous books. Some of them are See, I Told You So; The Way Things Ought to Be; and a series for children, Rush Revere.

Last year, he was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. On October 2020, he talked about how he felt each day. He admitted that he was always grateful to be alive every day. Despite the health challenge he faced, he was always thankful to God that he wakes up to a new day. He sees it as an avenue to be more appreciative for God’s blessings.

In addition, he talked about his faith and how it has brought him this far. He said that he had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and this gave him value, confidence, and strength. This is even more reason why he believed that anything that happens, happens for a reason when it is time. Although there is fear in knowing that we are not all powerful as humans, there is also a comforting feeling knowing it. It helps us to believe in the Supreme being. He was also famous for saying that his talent was a loan from God.

In a tribute to Limbaugh on Wednesday, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem picked from the words of the late radio host. He said that our gifts are not our own. They are simply God’s blessings for us on earth. Hence, Limbaugh shared his gift with us and he will be surely missed.

In the words of radio host, Erick Erickson, Limbaugh was a mentor and a friend. However, he now gets to return his talent back to God.
