    LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Last night at the 2005 National
 Association of Broadcasters Marconi Radio Awards Dinner and Show, the radio
 industry's "Oscars," Mr. Rush Limbaugh won "Network Syndicated Personality of
 the Year."  It is the fourth time he has won this prestigious award.
     Mr. Limbaugh stated, "I would like to once again thank my audience for
 making this possible.  Their loyalty and support are unprecedented and I am
 grateful.  And I am the first to realize that this kind of recognition doesn't
 come without the help, support and partnership of each and every single radio
 station carrying my program.  I appreciate them all and will never take them
 for granted.  Even 18 years into this phase of my career, I am still humbled
 by this award."
     Established in 1989, and named after inventor and Nobel Prize winner
 Guglielmo Marconi, the NAB Marconi Radio Awards are given to radio stations
 and outstanding on-air personalities to recognize excellence in radio.  An
 independent task force selected finalists and ballots were sent to members of
 the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Selection Academy in August.  The ballots were
 tabulated by RSM McGladrey.
     Known as the media pundit who reshaped the political landscape with his
 entertaining and informative brand of conservatism, Mr. Limbaugh is also
 widely credited with resuscitating AM radio by many industry experts.  Heard
 by nearly 20 million weekly listeners, "The Rush Limbaugh Show" airs on nearly
 600 radio stations.
