What was it like to work with Rush Limbaugh for decades? What was it like inside the studio?
The words of James Golden, affectionately referred to as “Bo Snerdley” by Limbaugh, went on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show to tell the nation about his former boss.
“[Y]ou know, Sean, we can’t wrap our arms around this,” said Golden. “We can’t wrap our brains and our hearts around this that our beloved Rush has returned his talent to God. And we are so thankful to him.”
Golden said Limbaugh’s impact on the nation has been incredibly significant.
You know, Rush is to me a second-generation founding father. This went beyond radio. This went beyond politics. What Rush did for America, one man changed so many trajectories in this — in this country. When Rush began his career, there were 1,200 radio stations roughly doing the talk radio format. Today, there are over 12,000. The number of print conservative publications, very few, today, they — it’s a flourishing market.
Golden also said the Limbaugh America loved was as lovable and authentic in real life. “He never looked down on people,” said Golden. “It burns me to my soul when people sully his reputation with falsehoods calling him a racist. This man was just an incredible phenomenon. And we love you, Rush. God bless you.”
