Pence to narrate Limbaugh documentary series for Fox Nation
Former Vice President Mike Pence is lending his voice to Fox News Media's streaming service Fox Nation on an upcoming docuseries about the life and career of the late, famed, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
The former vice president will narrate the four-part limited series on the life and career of Limbaugh, who passed away last month at the age of 70 from lung cancer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Age of Rush," set to premiere March 10, will chronicle the radio host's lengthy career in four parts, titled, "The Spoken Word," "Revolution," "Rise of the New Right" and "A Blessed Life." The series will cover Limbaugh's radio career roots, his impact on the 1994 midterms, his rise during the Obama administration and his cancer diagnosis and consequent battle with the disease, respectively, Deadline reports.
Pence, a former radio host himself, joins the cast of high-profile conservative radio personalities slated to participate in the docuseries.
Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Brian Kilmeade, Mark Steyn and Larry Elder are also involved in the project, as well as Fox News Channel's Bill Hemmer, MediaBuzz's Howard Kurtz, Fox News contributor and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) and Limbaugh's producer James Golden, better known as "Bo Snerdley," according to Deadline.
Following the news of Limbaugh's death, Pence hailed the media figure, tweeting "Today America lost a giant."
Fox News also mourned the loss of Limbaugh, dedicating the majority of its air time to honoring him on the day he died.
"Throughout daytime and prime-time programming, [Fox News] will provide continuous coverage to honor the life and legacy of Limbaugh," the network said in a statement at the time.
