Conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh had been off the air for about one week from his show The Rush Limbaugh Show — a nationally syndicated show on AM and FM radio stations since 1988.

Limbaugh was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer on January 20, 2020, after first experiencing shortness of breath on January 12, 2020. He announced his cancer diagnosis on air during his radio show on February 3, 2020. He announced he would miss airtime to undergo treatment, and stated that he planned to continue the program “as normally and competently” as he could while undergoing treatment. He said he didn’t want to make his show about him.




Limbaugh was a guest of President Donald Trump at the 2020 State of the Union Address on February 4, 2020, where he was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

On October 20, 2020, Limbaugh announced that attempts to treat the cancer were no longer containing the cancer, that his diagnosis was terminal and that he had been given a time frame on when he should expect to die, although he did not reveal the time frame. Limbaugh said he is living under a death sentence.
