The late Rush Limbaugh will be the first person to be enshrined into the American Conservative Union’s Conservative Hall of Fame, according to Fox News. The National Rifle Association was the first entity to be inducted back in 2018.

Limbaugh, who passed away at the age of 70 following a year-long battle with lung cancer, will also be honored at this weekend’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Longtime Rush Limbaugh Show producer Bo Snerdley is expected to be in attendance, according to a source.

American Conservative Union (ACU) chairman Matt Schlapp told Fox News that he was hoping Rush would return to the CPAC to speak again. Schlapp recalled Limbaugh’s 2009 speech about conservatism.

“The fact that that speech stands alone as this very important moment for CPAC and for conservatism is somehow appropriate,” Schlapp told Fox News.

All the cable news network’s took Limbaugh’s 2009 speech live, helping to put CPAC on the map outside of conservative circles. His remarks were considered a “Conservative State of the Union” and allowed liberal viewers who tuned in on mainstream media outlets to get a glimpse of the conservative movement.

77 WABC Radio host Sid Rosenberg is organizing a protest outside of the Saturday Night Live studios following a skit that he felt was offensive towards Jewish people. The skit depicted Israel’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

Rosenberg will be joined by former Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind. The protest is set to take place this Saturday. “We are going to NBC to educate — not to crucify anybody — we are going there to say this is not funny,” said Hikind in a recent YouTube video.

The skit occurred during the Weekend Update portion of the show. Cast member Michael Che said “Israel is reporting that they’ve vaccinated half of their population. I’m going to guess it’s the Jewish half.”

Rosenburg is the co-host of Bernie & Sid in the Morning. “I think Lorne Michaels should be ashamed of himself,” said Rosenberg “Whether it is Pete Davidson or Michael Che, they should be more sensitive.”“77 WABC Radio is proud Sid is taking action in the community. Any hate should not be tolerated,” said Chad Lopez, President of Red Apple Media Group.
