Rush Limbaugh has died, and obituaries are highlighting his long career as an effective broadcaster and polarizing figure. His show was syndicated on 600 stations via Premiere Networks, reaching 27 million people weekly. It was highly successful and bought the college dropout a 24,000-square-foot home in Palm Beach that also housed his broadcasting studio. By 2018, Limbaugh's annual salary was $84.5 million, second only in radio to Howard Stern. This didn't happen because he was bad at what he did.
