Condolences to family and friends of longtime RUSH LIMBAUGH "Chief of Staff" CHRISTOPHER "KIT" CARSON, who died after a battle with a brain tumor TODAY (1/26) at 58. CARSON, also known on the air as "H.R.," joined LIMBAUGH when the host's syndicated show debuted in 1988 at WABC-A/NEW YORK.
On his show TODAY (1/26), LIMBAUGH eulogized CARSON, saying, "We all here at the EIB Network are experiencing a huge void in all of our hearts here today because of a death, one of our staff members, the very first staff member to join me 27 years ago in NEW YORK. CHRISTOPHER CARSON, "KIT," my trusted chief of staff, aide-de-camp, passed away today at 8a at his home in NEW JERSEY after what really was a four-year battle, really valiant, never-seen-anything-like-it battle with essentially brain cancer. He thought that it was beaten back two years ago, but it came back again last fall with a vengeance ... KIT was in all ways, every way I can of think of, a special human being and person."
"I wish all of you could have -- many of you around the course of the country and various parts have probably met him, and if you did, you know exactly the kind of person and personality I'm talking about," LIMBAUGH said. "I wish everybody could have met him ... Even though you never heard him, and even though many might not have known who he was or what he did other than hearing me call him chief of staff, he was irreplaceable."
