Rush Limbaugh

On the one year anniversary of Rush Limbaugh’s death, Brett shares some memories from “El Rushbo”.

WBT afternoon host Brett Winterble joins Bo Thompson talking about the one-year anniversary of the passing of Rush Limbaugh and the two-year anniversary of Brett joining WBT as a full-time afternoon talk show host.

"He was always focused, no matter what."

"Rush was a patriot, a defender of Liberty, and someone who believed in all of the greatness our Country stands for. Rush was a friend to myself and millions of Americans—a guiding light with the ability to see the truth and paint vivid pictures over the airwaves," Donald Trump about Limbaugh said in a statement.

Limbaugh was one of the most influential media figures in American history.  "The Rush Limbaugh Show" began in 1988 and evolved into the top-rated program in syndication over the past four decades. The EIB Network show is aired on more than 600 stations, and heard by nearly 30 million people weekly.

“I am just overjoyed at the chance to connect with the greatest audience in all of talk radio," Winterble said. "It is a homecoming. I have kept in close touch with everyone at the Rush Limbaugh show over these years and nothing could be more special than to sit in that legendary seat for a man I consider a friend and mentor.”

As heard on 600+ radio stations coast-to-coast, WBT's Brett Winterble filled in for Rush Limbaugh on his nationally syndicated radio program Wednesday afternoon. The former producer for the most famous voice in talk radio lived out a dream by standing in for his former boss on the EIB Network.
