Rush Limbaugh Career
At 16, he chose to explore his passion for broadcasting by working as a disc jockey for a hometown radio station. After four years, he left for Pittsburgh to work for the former ABC owned and operated KQV. Tired of the disc jockey life, Rush briefly left broadcasting for business, joining the Kansas City Royals as Director of Group Sales, and later as Director of Sales and Special Events.
Rush couldn’t resist the urge to return to broadcasting. In 1983, he re-entered radio as a political commentator for KMBZ in Kansas City. A year later Rush hosted a daytime talk show in Sacramento, California, tripling the program’s ratings in four years. From there, in 1988, he went on to New York where the record-breaking national show was born.

His passion inspires millions of Americans to be the best they can be and keeps the country on course to a bright future.

Rush Limbaugh received a call on his radio program Tuesday from President Trump, who applauded the conservative commentator for reaching the 30th anniversary of his show.
“So I just want to congratulate you — 30 years. And just do it for another 30 years, after that you can take it easy, okay?” Trump said.
“I will stay around just as long as you do,” Limbaugh said in response.
“Okay,” Trump said. “You have a deal.”
During the call, Limbaugh said that former President Obama had claimed “what is happening now couldn’t happen” and told Trump that he has “reversed the direction of the country was going.”
“You have a lot of bad people in Washington. You knew that a long time ago,” Trump said. “Frankly, before I knew it. I had no idea how evil some of them are, but you have a lot of great people too. And outside of Washington you have the greatest people in the world.”
Limbaugh also asked Trump if he was aware of “what you mean to everybody who voted for you,” and honed in on why people are attracted to Trump.
“I understand the bond that those people attending your rallies have with you and you with them,” Limbaugh said. “I’ve seen it. I know why it exists. And you are consistent. Things you said during the campaign are things you still say today. You haven’t given anybody reason to doubt you. You haven’t betrayed anybody or made them think that you’re going to.”
The call comes a day after Trump tweeted that Limbaugh is “a great guy who truly gets it.”
Earlier this week, Limbaugh addressed Trump’s warning that he wouldn’t shy away from a government shutdown in September should Congress fail to include substantial border security funding in an upcoming spending package.
Limbaugh said the move was favorable to Trump’s base and would “turn people out in November.” Limbaugh also said Trump was indicating to supporters that immigration would be a key issue in the midterm elections.
“I think there’s some reliance on the strength of the economy, but people showing up to vote, thanking the president for a good economy?” Limbaugh said on Monday. “I don’t think they want to bank on that as much as they want to bank on the fact that we could be losing the country here if the Democrats gain control.”
