In 2020, Rush Limbaugh was the 11th highest celebrity earner in the United States. Forbes reported his 2020 earnings at $85 million, noting that in January 2020 he’d renewed his contract with Premiere Radio Networks, which paid him $70 million per year. Limbaugh also wrote seven books, including a children’s series, Rush Revere, and received fees for the streaming of videos of his radio show.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Limbaugh’s net worth when he died was a staggering $600 million. In addition to the $85 million annual salary, which made him the second highest paid radio host in America, after his fellow Time magazine cover feature Howard Stern, Limbaugh lived in a “$26 million oceanfront home in West Palm Beach…[with] seven bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, and an elevator.” He also owned “a penthouse condo on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.” Limbaugh married his fourth wife, Kathryn Rogers, in 2010 and had no children.
