The Hill’s Joe Concha tweeted that Rush Limbaugh announced of his radio show that he has advanced lung cancer.

Ryan Saavedra has Limbaugh’s full remarks:

“Ladies and gentleman, this day has been one of the most difficult days in recent memory for me because I’ve known this moment was coming in the program today,” Limbaugh began. “I’m sure you all know by now, I really don’t like talking about myself and I don’t like making things about me other than in the usual satirical joking way.”

“I like this program to be about you and things that matter to all of us,” Limbaugh continued. “The one thing that I know that has happened over the 31 plus years of this program is that there has been an incredible bond that has developed between all of you and me.”

“So I have to tell you something today that I wish I didn’t have to tell you,” Limbaugh continued. “And it’s, it’s a struggle for me because I had to inform my staff earlier today.”

“I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer,” Limbaugh said.
