Rush Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh is “America’s Anchorman.” Heard on over 600 stations across America, he is credited with saving AM radio. Born in 1951 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Limbaugh dreamed of a radio career as a child and would “call” imaginary baseball games.After leaving radio in 1978 to work with the Kansas City Royals, he returned five years later to give it one more shot. When he started injecting his opinions into his Kansas City newscasts, management was upset and he was fired. Limbaugh then moved to KFBK/Sacramento, and his climb to the top escalated when he landed at WABC/New York. In 1988, Limbaugh went national, and his outspoken opinions touched a political nerve and propelled him to superstar status. In the fall of 2001, Rush was stricken with severe hearing loss, which threatened his career, but his massive audience rallied to support him. He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1993. Hear Rush live Monday through Friday, plus the encore Rush Limbaugh Week in Review Sunday from 9:00am to 12 Noon on News Talk 780 KOH.
