Rush Limbaugh's longtime producer asked for prayers as the conservative broadcaster missed another show due to his health.

The 70-year-old Limbaugh was expected to miss Wednesday's show as he battles advanced lung cancer, and producer James Golden, known as Bo Snerdley, gave listeners an update on his health, reported Fox News.

"Our prayers are with Rush as he continues to fight the illness he has been afflicted with," the producer posted on Twitter.

Limbaugh has been off the air since Feb. 2 and has missed numerous shows for treatment of his cancer.

"I wasn't expected to make it to October, and then to November, and then to December," Limbaugh told listeners just before Christmas, "and yet, here I am."
