    Conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh passed away on Wednesday morning at 70-years-old following his year-long battle with lung cancer.

    "We, the Limbaugh family, are deeply saddened to announced that our beloved Rush has died," Limbaugh's wife, Kathryn Adams Limbaugh, said in a post on her husband's Facebook account. "Rush Hudson Limbaugh III will forever be the greatest of all time, a courageous, brilliant gentle giant and radio pioneer. Our entire family is so thankful to everyone who prayed and cared for Rush, especially the audience he adored. Rush's love for our country, and for all of you, will live on eternally."

    Limbaugh's "The Rush Limbaugh Show" first aired in 1988 and spent 33 years on the air, growing from being nationally syndicated with 56 radio stations to more than 600 stations with up to nearly 27 million weekly listeners.

    "I wasn't expected to be alive today," Limbaugh said in his final radio broadcast of 2020, as reported by Fox News. "I wasn't expected to make it to October, and then to November, and then to December. And yet, here I am, and today, got some problems, but I'm feeling pretty good today."

    President Donald Trump awarded Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the 2020 State of the Union following Limbaugh revealing to the world that he had been diagnosed with cancer.
