Conservative talk show radio host and Republican party icon Rush Limbaugh has died. He was 70 years old.
His wife Kathryn announced his passing on his radio show Wednesday, saying Limbaugh died earlier this morning.
“Rush will forever be the greatest of all time,” she said.
Limbaugh had been battling advanced lung cancer since February.
Back in October, Limbaugh provided this somber update on his show: “You know, I wake up every day and thank God that I did. I go to bed every night praying I’m gonna wake up. I don’t know how many of you do that, those of you who are not sick, those of you who are not facing something like I and countless other millions are.”

“I can’t help but feel that I’m letting everybody down with this, but the upshot is that I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer,” Limbaugh said in February.
“The Rush Limbaugh Show” first aired in 1988.
