He left his stamp on the nation’s political debate for decades.
Rush Limbaugh, a scathing conservative voice who made himself into a powerhouse political figure on talk radio for the past three decades, died on Wednesday. He was 70 years old.
Kathryn Rogers, the longtime radio host’s wife, announced her husband’s death at the beginning of his show on Wednesday. The cause of death was complications from lung cancer, she said.
“As so many of you know, losing a loved one is terribly difficult, even more so when that loved one is larger than life. Rush will forever be the greatest of all time,” Rogers said. “Rush was an extraordinary man. A gentle giant. A brilliant, quick-witted, genuinely kind, extremely generous, passionate, courageous and the hardest-working man I know. Despite being one of the most recognized, powerful people in the world, Rush never let the success change his core or beliefs. He was polite and respectful to everyone he met.”
