Rush Limbaugh’s gatekeeper, ‘Snerdley,’ opens up
It takes a special kind of person to keep pace with the king of conservative talk radio, Rush Limbaugh. Long-time producer James Golden, aka “Bo Snerdley,” accepted the challenge over 25 years ago, and he hasn’t had time to look back since.
The years flew by, Golden told BizPac Review in a candid interview. At the beginning “I was real skinny and I had hair,” he said.
Despite juggling the duties of producer, researcher and call screener, Golden made the high-stress job sound almost effortless as he described a day in Rush’s world.
He and his boss have a similar work ethic and a knack for radio built on decades of experience, Golden revealed (see insight video below).
The “golden” rules: Work hard, keep up with the news and have patience with people.
The down-to-earth conservative charmed a South Florida crowd at Wednesday’s Republican Business Network meeting, where he answered questions both political and personal in nature.
