Limbaugh launched his popular syndicated radio show in 1988, and quickly became one of the most influential conservative voices in media.

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

Back in 2008, the media icon acknowledged the weight of his words in an interview with The New York Times. “I take the responsibility that comes with my show very seriously,” he revealed at the time. “I want to persuade people with ideas.

He went on to say to the newspaper, “I don’t walk around thinking about my power. But in my heart and soul, I know I have become the intellectual engine of the conservative movement.”
