Fla. Gov. Ron DeSantis speaks about conservative icon and radio host Rush Limbaugh’s legacy at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
In a touching tribute, the nine-minute ode touched on all parts of Limbaugh’s career — from an up-and-coming DJ in suburban Pennsylvania to America’s top-rated radio talk host at EIB Southern Command in Palm Beach, Fla.
As the video described, Limbaugh once went by the alias “Jeff Christie” on a top-40 station in McKeesport, Pa. — near Pittsburgh, as he worked his way toward becoming “America’s Anchorman.”
American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, who organized the CPAC conference, remarked in the tribute that Limbaugh — who died Feb. 17 after a battle with cancer — “singlehandedly saved radio.”
