Phil Valentine, a popular radio show host in Nashville, of conservative ideas and averse to vaccines for covid-19, died at the age of 61 due to the coronavirus, according to the station.
“With sadness we inform that our announcer and friend Phil Valentine has died. Please keep your family in mind and prayers ”, said Super Talk 99.7 in a message to its audience via Twitter.
According to the digital medium tennessean, Valentine announced on July 11 on social networks that he had covid-19, but he maintained that he would survive.
A few days later, members of his family said that he was very ill in a hospital and he wanted his listeners to get vaccinated.
Mark Valentine, brother of the deceased, stated that if Phil could speak he would tell his audience to get vaccinated and stop worrying about politics and “Conspiracy theories”.
At the beginning of August, it became known that Dick Farrel, a former radio host and presenter of the right-wing news outlet Newsmax TV, had died of complications from covid-19.
He was a “staunch opponent” of coronavirus vaccines, which he once called “false”, according to the WPTV channel.
A friend of Farrel revealed that he had received a text message from him in which he stated that the coronavirus is not a “joke” and that he would have liked to have been vaccinated, according to the same outlet.
