Radio Host

Limbaugh might not be popular with blue staters, but when he speaks, his loyal listeners (called “Dittoheads”) respond. Case in point: Shortly after Nike pulled its sneaker featuring the “Betsy Ross flag” in July, he began selling “Stand Up for Betsy Ross!” T-shirts on his website, raising more than $2 million for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, a charity honoring 9/11 first responders. But the real proof is in the ratings. After 31 years in syndication, “The Rush Limbaugh Show” reigns as the most-heard talk-radio program in the U.S., reaching more than 25 million monthly on more than 650 affiliates nationwide. Limbaugh also offers fans the premium online content hub Rush 24/7 and “The Limbaugh Letter,” a monthly print and digital magazine now in its 26th year.
