“Bo Snerdley” Announces Prostate Cancer Battle

James Golden began hosting a podcast about Limbaugh recently

Published

on

Rush Limbaugh’s long-time call screener, James Golden, known to listeners as Bo Snerdley, recently revealed that he had been battling prostate cancer. Golden made the announcement during a podcast called Rush Limbaugh: The Man Behind the Golden EIB Microphone.

Golden said that he had just finished his treatment in Maryland when his former boss made the announcement to his staff that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.

Golden shared how he felt when Limbaugh called a meeting in 2020 to reveal his terminal diagnosis to his staff. He said the emotions that he felt at the time given the news and his recent battle, were overwhelmingly.  

“Premiere Networks and our engineers on the West Coast did extraordinary things to allow me to work in Maryland, where I moved to for almost a half-year while I was being treated,” Golden said. “No one knew, because I kept working, my workdays were kind of normal, I would have my treatment in the morning and then just go to work in the afternoons.”

The new podcast documents Golden’s experience as Rush’s phone screener. The newly released series also gives listeners a unique perspective into the inner workings of the one of the most successful radio shows in the country.

“I had the feeling like Rush was invincible,” Golden said during the podcast. “But in the same sense that word “advanced” was a bothersome word.”

Limbaugh lost his battle with advanced stage lung cancer on Feb 17. Premiere Networks is still airing Rush’s show utilizing special guest hosts and insight from Limbaugh’s previous shows.
