About Rush Limbaugh

The Rush Limbaugh Show

Weekdays 12 PM - 3 PM

Rush Limbaugh, the “Doctor of Democracy,” is one of the leading names in AM radio. Limbaugh brings unique talent to the media and political landscape with his unprecedented combination of serious discussion of political, cultural, and social issues along with satirical and biting humor.

Rush Hudson Limbaugh III was born in 1951 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri to a family with a long line of attorneys. At 16, he chose to explore his passion for broadcasting by working as a disc jockey for a hometown radio station. After four years, he left for Pittsburgh to work for the former ABC owned and operated KQV. Tired of the disc jockey life, Rush joined the Kansas City Royals as Director of Group Sales, and later as Director of Sales and Special Events.

In 1983, he re-entered radio as a political commentator for KMBZ in Kansas City. A year later Rush hosted a daytime talk show in Sacramento, California, tripling the program’s ratings in four years. In 1988, Rush launched his successful radio broadcast, The Rush Limbaugh Show. Now, 32 years later, the show is heard on more than 600 stations by up to 27 million people each week and is the highest-rated national radio talk show in America. In his expansive career, he continues to also write political commentary and has published seven books.

Rush is decorated in broadcasting and prestigious accolades. Most recently, President Donald Trump awarded Rush the Presidential Medal of Freedom, our nation’s highest civilian honor. Rush has also received the Marconi Radio Award five times, and has been inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians, the Radio Hall of Fame, and the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
