On the one-year anniversary of her husband’s passing, Kathryn Limbaugh spoke about her late husband, radio icon Rush Limbaugh, and what he would think about the state of the country if he was broadcasting today.

Kathryn said that Rush would be “rather furious” with America’s condition in the one year since his passing at the age of 70 after battling lung cancer, according to Fox News.

“He would be upset with the United States not being as strong as it has been and should be. I know he would say it’s not time to panic,” she said.

“It’s never time to panic. Folks, it’s never, ever going to be time to give up on our country. It’ll never be time to give up on the United States. It’ll never be time to give up on yourself,” Kathryn said.

While speaking with Fox News, Kathryn spoke about Rush’s life and everything that he accomplished as one of the most influential conservative voices for decades.

“To me, it really represents Rush in so many ways, not because of the grandness of it. That’s not really him. It represents success, American freedom,” Kathryn explained.

She spoke about Rush Limbaugh’s career, when what he called his “talent on loan from God” hit the airwaves when he broadcast for WABC in New York City.


“He would like to say [it was] when he was eight and he was broadcasting from his bedroom down to his mother and brother. But the big break probably was New York.”

“He knew there was a much higher plan and much higher purpose. He believes strongly in his relationship with God,” Kathryn said.

Kathryn said Rush was able to “keep going” when things got tough because of his commitment to his audience.

“Rush always said that this audience meant everything to him, and we want that to carry on and make sure that we continue our American values, that we continue to have pride for our symbols,” she said.

During a visit to the broadcaster’s Missouri grave, she recalled an interaction with one Limbaugh fan.

“I happened to be sitting there when out of nowhere, a man gave me his rosary that he had brought there to give to Rush. In that time, I felt he’s still with us. He’s living on through these people.”


In December 2020, Limbaugh choked up while thanking fans and contemplating “when the day comes,” meaning he passed away from his cancer.

“A yearly tradition. We wrap up with Mannheim Steamroller and ‘Silent Night,’ and my ongoing attempts to thank everybody in the audience — all of you — for everything you mean to me. That last call. That reminds me how much I love all of you, how much I so appreciate everything you’ve meant to me and my family,” Limbaugh said at the time.

“You don’t have any idea how — I know so many people think this program has changed their lives for the better. You have no idea what you all have meant to me and my family. The day’s gonna come, folks, where I’m not gonna be able to do this. I don’t know when that is. I want to be able to do it for as long as I want to do it,” he added.

“I want to, but the day will come where I’m not going to be able to, and I want you to understand that even when the day comes, I’d like to be here. Because I have this sense of needing to constantly show my appreciation for all that you have done and meant to me. So I hope you all have a great Christmas, a great New Year, and I hope that the things that are in store for all of us in the coming year are certainly better than what we have endured in 2020,” he said.

“I don’t know too many people who’ve enjoyed 2020. There are probably some sickos out there who have. But 2021 has to be better. We’re gonna try to make it that way here at the EIB Network. Again, folks, thank you so much. I wish there were a way to say it other than ‘thank you.’ You’re just the best. My family is just the best. Thank you. Merry Christmas, everybody, from all of us to all of you. Make it happen,” he concluded.
