Limbaugh Inks New Deal: Four More Years
Talk show legend Rush Limbaugh, heard weekdays on 101.7 / 710 KEEL from 11 til 2, has signed a new, four year contract to continue his nationally syndicated show well into the next decade.
According to a number of reports, the 68-year-old Limbaugh's soon-to-expire deal with Premier Radio Networks was for eight years and paid him in excess of $400 million.
Rush's new agreement, as many have noted, was announced by a beaming President Trump. From thehill.com:
"The deal was first announced, unofficially, by President Trump at a rally in Miami on Friday. 'We have great people. Rush just signed another four-year contract,'Trump said Friday. 'He just wants four more years, OK?'"
Though terms of the contract will forever remain somewhat shrouded, Wikipedia reports that Limbaugh's salary topped the $84 million mark.
A previous version of this article included a quote from Michael Harrison. The quote was from 2016 about a previous Rush contract and was mistakenly applied to Rush's new contract.
