Rush Limbaugh
Joins ESPN

Rush Limbaugh, who had been passed over by ABC's "Monday Night Football" three years ago, has been hired by ESPN to do a weekly broadcast.

Limbaugh will deliver a weekly opinion piece on ESPN's "Sunday Night NFL Countdown." He will join Chris Berman, Tom Jackson, Steve Young and Michael Irvinon on this weekly program.

Limbaugh, 52, said he would do at least half the shows from the ESPN studios in Bristol, Conn., and the remainder at his home in Palm Beach, Fla.
