Rush Limbaugh is one of the most famous and trending Radio personality in whole world right now. Rush Limbaugh was born on January 12, 1951 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, U.S. He was born as Rush Hudson Limbaugh III, but best known as Rush Limbaugh.
He is the son of Mildred Carolyn “Millie” and Rush Hudson Limbaugh Jr. His father was a lawyer and a U.S. fighter pilot who served in the China Burma India Theater of World War II. His mother was a native of Searcy, Arkansas. The name “Rush” was originally chosen for his grandfather to honor the maiden name of family member Edna Rush. He graduated from Cape Girardeau, Missouri Central High School in 1969.
He began his career in radio as a teenager in 1967 in his hometown of Cape Girardeau, using the name Rusty Sharpe. Opinionated and conservative talk show host known for his controversial and inciting commentary. In 1972, he moved to McKeesport, Pennsylvania and started off his radio career but as a music Disc Jockey. He started a morning and afternoon show as Jeff Christie. After a failed attempt at trying to have a successful career, he moved back home to Cape Girardeau but never gave up on his dreams. By 1984, he was back again on the radio, this time as a show host in a radio station in Sacramento. Rush gained popularity for himself with his conservative comments and his constant criticisms of the Democratic party, their government and policies. In 1990, his show was ranked the most popular by the New York Times and he was shortly awarded an honorary membership in the Republican Party. At times in his career, he’s had the highest-rated talk radio program in the United States.
In December 1990, journalist Lewis Grossberger wrote in The New York Times that Limbaugh had “more listeners than any other talk show host” and described Limbaugh’s style as “bouncing between earnest lecturer and political vaudevillian. He had publicized personal difficulties in the 2000s. In late 2001, he acknowledged that he had become almost completely deaf, although he continued his show. He was able to regain much of his hearing with the help of a cochlear implant in 2001.
In 2003, Limbaugh had a brief stint as a pro football commentator with ESPN. He resigned a few weeks into the 2003 NFL season after making comments about the press coverage for quarterback Donovan McNabb that caused controversy and accusations of racism on the part of Limbaugh. Limbaugh’s radio show airs for three hours each weekday beginning at noon Eastern Standard Time on both AM and FM radio. The program is also broadcast worldwide on the Armed Forces Radio Network.
Radio broadcasting shifted from AM to FM in the late 1970s because of the opportunity to broadcast music in stereo with better fidelity. Limbaugh’s show was first nationally syndicated in August 1988, in a later stage of AM’s decline. Limbaugh’s popularity paved the way for other conservative talk radio programming to become commonplace on AM radio. The show increased its audience in the 1990s to the extent that even some FM stations picked it up, even though AM’s poor sound quality and lack of stereo make AM preferable for a talk show like Limbaugh’s.
He got married 4 times: first to Roxy Maxine McNeely on September 24, 1977, then to Michelle Sixta Wennerholm on December 19, 1982, to Marta Maranda Fitzgerald on May 27, 1994, and to Kathryn Rogers on June 5, 2010.
