Conservative news talk host Rush Limbaugh is crediting his support system as his public battle with stage 4 lung cancer continues.

“There were days I didn’t think I would be here on this date,” Limbaugh said. “I thought if I was here, I wouldn’t be doing this but I’m alive and kicking and thriving.”

Limbaugh announced that he had advanced lung cancer back in February, since then, his cancer has spread to other parts of his body. The host said that the progression of his cancer occurred during the third-wave of treatment. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it more difficult for people battling cancer. The reason is that access to hospitals has been restricted and cancer patients are more susceptible to getting the coronavirus.

“For our patients with lung cancer, they are not at higher risk for developing COVID-19,” said Dr. Karen Reckamp, Director of the Division of Medical Oncology at Cedar-Sinai in Los Angeles. “But because most patients who have lung cancer and have had treatment or are receiving treatment for lung cancer have some compromise to their lung functions. We are concerned about the possibility of COVID-19 developing into pneumonia.”

She advised that people with lung cancer continue to practice good safety habits. Meanwhile, Limbaugh continues his nationally syndicated radio show with no indication of slowing down. I’ve got the greatest support system at home that you could possibly imagine, unconditional support.”

Los Angeles radio hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou reacted Monday to a climate change article printed in the New York Times which describes a mega storm that could last for a month.

The KFI Radio hosts described the article written by Raymond Zhong as an “odd story.” 

“When I saw it on the front page of the actual printed paper, I was like we are being hit over the head with a drought,” said Chiampou. “Now you’re telling us that we’re going to drown?” 

Zhong wrote that a storm of this magnitude could cause more economic damage than a massive earthquake. 

Kobylt pointed out that the same report was published in the Los Angeles Times

“They (media) really go for these frightening stories so they can continue pushing their global warming obsession,” he added. 

The report states that the amount of rain predicted during this mega storm could test the levees, dams, and rivers in the state’s systems. 

John and Ken suggested that the New York Times may have received federal grant money to research this report. 

“From what I have read, if you’re doing climate research you aren’t allowed to research anything other than global warming, climate change disaster,” Kobylt said. “If you do any research that pushes back on what the cult says, then you are out of business.”

Pittsburgh radio personality Kevin Battle announced that Audacy-owned KDKA NewsRadio unexpectedly terminated his contract Tuesday. Battle shared the news on Facebook, stating that “evolving business situations” prompted the cut.

“It has been an absolute thrill and honor to be able to return to Pittsburgh to work at the legendary KDKA-AM/FM and with the professionals who make it sound great – especially our producer, Rob Graner,” Battle said.

Last year, Battle told Barrett News Media that he became involved in the news/talk format after a stint at a Baltimore sports station came to an end.

“I started selling motorcycles part-time and then I landed a part-time job at WNEW 99.1 FM in Washington D.C. After a year, somebody told me about a position in New York at Fox News Radio,” he said at the time.

A native Pittsburgher, Battle graduated from nearby Clarion University.

“I will be forever grateful to those of you who chose to tune in to the show each morning,” he said. “It really means so much to me that you spent your time listening and sharing your busy day with us. Thank YOU! I will miss you all.”

Meanwhile, radio listeners can begin to hear the show on Saturday, August 20, from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on KFI, iHeartRadio, and all other platforms.

“In the season three opener, Gregory will focus on the 2013 case of Bryce Laspisa, a missing student who was driving home from college to visit his family in Orange County,” a press release stated that Barrett News Media obtained. 

“He was last seen in Kern County, but his overturned SUV was found in north Los Angeles County off Lake Hughes Road near Castaic Lake. The evidence inside the vehicle included blood stains which matched those of the college sophomore. The case remains one of the most unusual missing persons cases in Los Angeles County.”

During season one, Gregory explored cases like the unsolved murder of Mark Leonard, the father of NBA superstar Kawhi Leonard. Furthermore, the radio host also observed the 75th Anniversary of the Black Dahlia, the most notorious unsolved case in the history of the LAPD.
