An alum of the nationally syndicated Doug Banks Morning Show, Rush has hosted a number of events, earning praise as the host of Showtime at the Apollo’s Kids Tour sponsored by McDonalds and host of the 2017 Soul Beach Music Festival, featuring Usher and Mary J. Blige. He also led the national tour for NPR’s acclaimed The Moth Radio Hours Storytelling series.
Hitting record numbers on the airwaves at iHeartMedia 93.7 The Beat Houston, Rush has connected with listeners on the Number 1 afternoon drive show in Houston, The Rush Hour With Rudy Rush.
