His death certificate listed his occupation as “GREATEST RADIO HOST OF ALL TIME,” reported TMZ, who obtained a copy of the certificate.
Kathryn Limbaugh, the late host’s wife, was listed as the one who gave his job info for the certificate, TMZ reported.
She previously said her husband was “just shy of a president” after his death.

The duo had been married since 2010.
Limbaugh’s show had been on the air for more than 30 years, since 1988.
He was a known critic of Democrats, feminists, environmentalists and others.
It was estimated in December 2019 by Talkers Magazine that his radio show drew an average of 15.5million listeners per week.
Forbes listed the radio show host’s earnings at $84.5million (£60.3million) in 2018.

Limbaugh was a member of the National Radio Hall of Fame and the National Association Of Broadcaster Hall Of Fame.
In October 2020, he described his cancer diagnosis as a “death sentence” and said he prays every night that he “wakes up” again.
In his first interview since leaving the White House, Trump praised Limbaugh as his friend.
“Rush was a friend to myself and millions of Americans – guiding light with the ability to see the truth and paint vivid pictures over the airwaves,” Trump said.
There’s questions of who may replace Limbaugh – but for now re-runs of the show are running.
Hosea Belcher, senior vice president of affiliate marketing for iHeartMedia Inc – the company that controls the fate of the show – previously said “No one can replace Rush Limbaugh.”
