“The Rush Limbaugh Show” will continue to air across the U.S. well into the new decade. The talk radio kingpin cut a "long-term agreement" to renew his syndicated show with Premiere Networks, CNN Business confirmed Sunday, after President Trump broke the news during a rally in Miami on Friday.
Limbaugh and Trump have been allies for years, well before Trump ran for office. The president offered praise for Limbaugh and other conservative talkers that have supported him while launching an "Evangelicals for Trump" coalition Friday. "We have great people," Trump said. "Rush just signed another four-year contract. He just wants four more years, okay. Rush, Sean Hannity, Laura – a lot of great people – Tucker's been great, 'Fox & Friends,' right?"
CNN Business confirmed the renewal with a Premiere spokeswoman over the weekend. Details are so far scarce – the spokeswoman said Limbaugh re-upped for a “long-term agreement” but didn’t elaborate on specifics.
Limbaugh last renewed in August 2016, signing a long-term, multiplatform contract extension with Premiere parent iHeartMedia. August 2019 marked Limbaugh’s 31st year in syndication. He broadcasts weekdays from noon-3pm Eastern on more than 600 affiliates, reaching millions of listeners. His show "continues to be the most-listened-to national radio talk show in America," according to Premiere.
