Conservative radio star Dan Bongino says the fight with Cumulus Media has turned “ugly.” Bongino has not missed three straight shows after he said Cumulus Media would have to decide between him and a company vaccine mandate.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Behind the scenes, it’s getting a little ugly here,” he said Tuesday. “I wasn’t on the radio today or yesterday. But you don’t treat people this way.”
He reiterated Wednesday that “it’s unfortunately an ugly fight. I wish it weren’t. But some of the people who have been fired from Cumulus, their stories are piling in, and they’re pretty disturbing,” referring to an email he read the previous day from an employee allegedly fired from the company for not complying with the mandate. The employee claimed Cumulus rejected his religious exemption within a day.
“This fight’s been wearing me down but not wearing me out,” Bongino said, adding he’d learned not to choose business partners who “treat people poorly and just have poor character.”
The former Secret Service agent turned commentator is opposed to vaccination mandates on the grounds of bodily autonomy, although he himself is vaccinated.
