Rush Limbaugh, a talk radio pioneer, known for his passion for American politics died today at the age of 70.

The Conservative host died after a year-long battle with advanced lung cancer, a diagnosis he revealed was terminal just months ago.   

His radio show reached syndication stardom in the late 80's.

Limbaugh was infamous for right-wing rants, anti-Black racism, misogyny and homophobia.

He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Trump at the State of the Union address recently after announcing his cancer diagnosis.
