DAYTONA BEACH -- Longtime radio talk-show host Marc Bernier has been hospitalized with COVID-19, according to a top official at WNDB (1150 AM, 93.5 FM).

"I don't have an update on him at this point, other than he has been hospitalized," said Mark McKinney, the station's operations director.

Bernier has been a fixture there for three decades.

While he did not have specific knowledge of Bernier's vaccination status, McKinney said that the host has made his anti-vaccination opinions well known on the air.

"If you've listened to his show, you've heard him talk about how anti-vaccine he is on the air," said McKinney.

Bernier wasn't exactly shy about his voicing his disdain for masks or the vaccine. This is a recent tweet, comparing mandates to Nazism. Nikki Fried is Florida's Agricultural Commissioner and a Democrat running against Ron DeSantis.

Bernier's show will be replaced by The Sean Hannity Show, which tells you what kind of station WNDB is.
