Conservative personality Dan Bongino isn’t stepping down from his fight against authoritarian vaccine mandates but he says the future isn’t looking bright.
In October, Bongino announced he was hitting Cumulus Media with an ultimatum over the company’s vaccine mandate for employees. The company could repeal the vaccine mandate or Bongino would not be filming more content for the popular Dan Bongino Show.
The Washington Post reported that Bongino said on his show in November that he spoke to Cumulus’ top brass, and got “some concessions” out of them — though he didn’t provide much in the way of detail.
“We’re at a stalemate here,” Bongino said at the time. “We basically got guns to each other’s heads.”
Bongino gave The Post an update on his fight with Cumulus.
[Bongino] suggested he wants to protect the job security of his workers. “I have numerous employees who work on my show too. I have to protect them,” he said.
He said he was in “an ongoing fight” with Cumulus — “there are conversations happening, but I’m not optimistic.” Asked how long these conversations could take, and how long he would wait before parting ways with Cumulus, he said, “I can’t speak to their timeline.”
As Bongino fight against Cumulus, his other employer Fox News recently announced it is putting its own vaccine mandate into effect for 2022 and ending the option for employees to show regular negative Covid-19 tests in lieu of getting the shot.
