Controversial political radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has lost his battle with lung cancer. He was 70.

The radio icon passed away on Wednesday, Feb. 17, according to Limbaugh's widow, Kathryn, who announced his death on Limbaugh's popular radio show.

Former First Lady Melania Trump presented him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom during President Trump's State of the Union address in the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, DC on Feb. 4, 2020.

Last year, his show aired on more than 600 stations via Premiere Networks and reached 27 million people weekly.
