The 58-year-old Rush, who has an army of 20 million listeners, was taken to Queen's Medical Center in serious condition, station KITV said.

Limbaugh's lawyer, Roy Black, told CNN he couldn't confirm reports that he had a heart attack but said he was "concerned" about Limbaugh.

Rush Limbaugh reportedly suffered a heart attack yesterday.

The popular talk show host was vacationing for several days in Hawaii and was seen playing on a golf course nearby. It is unclear if he is still in the hospital.

Limbaugh has increasingly been seen as a key leader in the Republican Party, and a top-rated voice on radio for years who earns up to $50 million a year.

A rep from his program said in a statement: "Rush was admitted to and is resting comfortably in a Honolulu hospital today after suffering chest pains."
