The wife of the late conservative talk show legend Rush Limbaugh confirmed an amazing fact about him before he passed away in February 2021 after losing a battle with lung cancer.

In an appearance on Glenn Beck’s radio show this week, Kathyrn Adams Limbaugh was asked to confirm a rumor about something that was put on Rush’s death certificate.

Beck asked: Did Rush’s final official document say that his occupation was “greatest radio host of all time”?

After laughing briefly at the question, Kathryn responded: “Yes. We have to be on brand at all times. … Another thing that we wanted to do and a way to tweak the media as a final goodbye from Rush, which we know he certainly would have loved.”



Rush died on Feb. 17, 2021, in Palm Beach, Fla., after a year-long battle with lung cancer. He was born in Cape Girardeau, Mo., on Jan. 12, 1951.

The Western Journal adds:

Kathryn, a direct descendant of Founding Father John Adams and an event organizer by trade, met Rush in 2004 at a charity golf tournament. They reconnected shortly after Rush divorced his third wife, Marta Fitzgerald, that same year, The Sun reported.

Elton John famously performed at the couple’s 2010 wedding. When Beck asked about the flamboyant singer, Kathryn said he and Rush were very similar.

“This may be breaking news, but I believe that Sir Elton John and Rush are actually very, very similar. They had quite a similar demeanor off of their performance personality. I believe that they both were so hard-working, they both were at the top of their game, so to speak, they both loved their audience. … So in many respects, they were very similar,” she told Beck.

Roughly a year before he died, Rush was honored by then-President Donald Trump with the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, during the State of the Union Address.
