Conservative radio giant Rush Limbaugh has died, following a bout with lung cancer. His wife Kathryn made the announcement at the outset of his radio show Wednesday.
“It is with profound sadness I must share with you directly that our beloved Rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning due to complications from lung cancer,” Kathryn announced to the audience.
Limbaugh first announced his diagnosis just over a year ago. He shared his health battle with listeners regularly in candid fashion.
“It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over,” Limbaugh told listeners in October. “We all know we’re going to die at some point.
