The man affectionately known as “Bo Snerdley” to millions of loyal Rush Limbaugh listeners has written a book about his time with the late iconic broadcaster. 

James Golden worked behind the scenes on the Rush Limbaugh Show for three decades. His new book called “Rush on the Radio” will share stories on how Limbaugh grew his show into the highest-rated radio program of all time. 

According to Amazon, Golden aims to continue “Rush’s legacy” which “must be framed carefully. “The stories must not be lost. In fact, we need them now more than ever.”

Following Limbaugh’s death from advanced lung cancer last year, Golden hosted a podcast reflecting on the life and times of Limbaugh. Golden now hosts a one-hour weekday program on 77 WABC in addition to his Saturday morning program on the station.

According to a review in the Washington Times, Golden wrote that he never wanted to portray Limbaugh as some mortal being. 

“He was a man, in many respects like any other man,” He wrote. “But here is where he was different from most. He was willing to stand and take the arrows the Left launched at him for over three decades — because he dared tell the political truth.”

It’s a midterm election year and despite 2022 barely getting underway, various news media outlets are preparing as to how they’ll be covering the upcoming races. 

Late-night host Samantha Bee spoke with NPR about how she feels covering another election after coming off the 2020 race, which will also present plenty of material for her “Full Frontal” show on TBS. 

“Listen, I’m sure you feel the same. I mean, I’m sure that you’re having the same discussion that we’re having in your offices, where you’re like, OK, well, here we go again,” Bee said on “Weekend Edition.”

Bee elaborated on how she feels heading into covering the midterms for her late-night show. Nonetheless, the TBS host elaborates that for now, she and her team don’t know how they’ll tackle these issues, but they’ll be figuring it out in the coming months. 

“I apologize for really not knowing how we’re going to take it on or – you know, that’s it. I mean, we’re kind of, as a show, trying to figure that out in the next couple of months because we will be covering it,” Bee said.

“And, of course, we have to cover it, and we have to cover it with joy. But I definitely woke up just a couple of days ago going, hey, everybody, we’re going to be voting again real soon. Do you think anybody’s going to be there with us?”

SiriusXM’s Joe Madison Ends Months-Long Hunger Strike

Madison ended his months-long hunger strike after Senate Democrats failed to pass a bill that would strengthen voting rights laws.

SiriusXM radio host Joe Madison ended his months-long hunger strike after Senate Democrats failed to pass a bill that would strengthen voting rights laws. 

The “Black Eagle” started his protest more than weeks before Thanksgiving and lasted a total of 74 days in his attempts to bring awareness to voting rights legislation. 

“A hunger strike is a nonviolent protest that is both political and moral,” said Madison. “It (hunger strike) states to those in power that an individual is willing to sacrifice their life, their health, for calls bigger than themselves.” 

Madison said when he began the hunger strike back on Nov. 8, he remembered the words of the late Howard University professor, Ron Walters as motivation for his advocacy. 

“He once stated that the difference between a moment and a movement is sacrifice. All movements require sacrifice. And that’s when I decided this was a movement that is going to require a sacrifice for us all.” 

During an interview with fellow satellite broadcaster, Sway Calloway, Madison revealed that he had lost 25 pounds. 

“The mantra of my show has always been after all the talking is done; each individual has to ask themselves the question: what are you going to do about it? Because everybody can do something,” Madison said.
