Nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh announced today that he is facing "advanced lung cancer". The announcement was made on his radio show, which can be heard in Shreveport and Bossier City on 710 KEEL.

From the Washington Examiner:

"Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh revealed that he has been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

On his radio show Monday, Limbaugh, 69, also said that he would likely miss some time on the program while he undergoes treatment."
