Rush Limbaugh

Talk-radio giant Rush Limbaugh will reportedly join Katie Couric this week on the CBS Evening News to help launch the former “Today” show host in her new duties as anchor at the Tiffany network.

“I’m trying to figure out how to turn my TV back on,” said Internet reporter Matt Drudge on his national radio show tonight, as he broke the news of Limbaugh’s participation. “Will you tune in to watch this? Because I will.”

“For them to bring in talk radio’s top personality in the backdrop of all this – that Katie is a liberal, she is an acknowledged liberal,” said Drudge, “this guy (Limbaugh) is at the top of the media pyramid. … Limbaugh’s been king for at least a decade. What has taken so long for them to bring him into this?”

Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, broadcast legend Walter Cronkite, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and TV commentator Bill Maher are said to be other major personalities slated for “guest editorials” during the initial broadcasts with Couric.

“This is quite a master stroke. You have underestimated Katie Couric,” said Drudge. “She is now bringing in people we want to hear from. How long until she declares World War III?”

Drudge clowned what else might be in store for the opening moments of Couric on CBS.

“Is Katie actually doing a pap smear on the CBS Evening News for opening night, too?”
