Conservative radio host Dan Bongino expanded on his ultimatum to radio distributor Cumulus Media that it could either enforce the vaccine mandate or keep him as a talent after his Monday declaration went viral.
During Tuesday’s show, Bongino said that he was standing up for the rights of Cumulus employees to have “sovereignty over their own bodies.”
“My decision has no impact on my stance,” he said. “I’m not even subject to the mandate because I’m already vaccinated. I’m doing it for other people who don’t have the oomph, the leverage, or the ability.”
Bongino criticized critics of his stance as members of the “conspiracy-theorist Left and grotesque-grifter Right” and accused them of having no principles. He dismissed the two myths he said they were propagating about him wanting to leave his contract with Cumulus as “hilarious,” the first being that his ratings were bad and, second, that his contract is up.
“Once people started to get let go and moved around, I felt that it was my responsibility at Cumulus to stand against it,” Bongino said. “Talking is one thing, but we got to do.”
Cumulus Media did not immediately respond to the Washington Examiner's request for comment.
