Rush Limbaugh to Get Freedom of Speech Award

Tuesday, 05 May 2009 12:15 AM

Top-rated radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh will be honored with Talkers magazine’s Freedom of Speech Award at its upcoming New Media Seminar, becoming the first media personality to receive the award twice.

Limbaugh will be lauded at the June 5-6 event “for the massive attention he garnered in the mainstream press as a result of statements made on the air critical of the President of the United States and particular branches of the Federal government that went on to spark a national dialogue and debate — a process that reflects the very heart of the First Amendment,” Talkers announced.

Talkers also issued a statement saying the award recognizes “the recipient’s contribution during the past year to keeping the principles of the First Amendment viable through highly visible example and practice.”

The 12th annual New Media Seminar will be held at the Concierge Conference Center in New York. Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity will deliver the keynote address. The more than 60 other scheduled speakers include talk radio’s Montel Williams, Ed Schulz, Monica Crowley, Mancow, and Curtis Sliwa.
