Rush Limbaugh launched his phenomenally successful radio broadcast into national syndication on Aug. 1, 1988, with 56 radio stations. Now it is heard on nearly 600 stations by up to 20 million people each week and is the highest rated national radio talk show in America.
Known as the media pundit who reshaped the political landscape with his entertaining and informative brand of conservatism, Rush is also widely credited with resuscitating AM radio by many industry experts.
Rush received the Marconi Award for “Syndicated Radio Personality of the Year” given by the National Association of Broadcasters in 1992, 1995, 2000 and 2005. In 1993, he was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame and in 1998, into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
