Sean Hannity took time in his show Wednesday to celebrate 30 years of Rush Limbaugh's radio show, calling the longtime conservative voice a "pioneer" who changed the media landscape.

Hannity, who hosts his own nationally-syndicated talk radio show, said Limbaugh gave voice to millions who were being ignored by the mainstream media. 

"He started what would become a new media revolution, one that radically and permanently altered the media landscape in America and paved the way for people like me, 'The Great One' Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and so many others," said Hannity.

On his anniversary show Wednesday, Limbaugh heard from President Trump, who called in from the White House to congratulate him. 

Trump asked Limbaugh if he could stay on the air for another 30 years, calling him "fantastic."

"I am floored. I thought there was nothing anybody could do to surprise me today," Limbaugh told Trump. 



"You have people that love you. I'm one of them. You're a very special guy. What you do for this country, people have no idea how important your voice is. ... You're stronger now than ever before," Trump said, calling Limbaugh "the dean" of talk radio. 

Hannity asked what America would be like without Limbaugh and all who followed his lead on talk radio, calling Limbaugh "the doctor of democracy."

"The media has some diversity because of his life's work."
