(Nashville) Famous conservative radio presenter from Tennessee was skeptical about vaccines until he was hospitalized with COVID-19. He is 61 years old.
Nashville radio station SuperTalk 99.7 WTN confirmed in a tweet Saturday that Bill Valentine was dead.
Bill Valentine was skeptical about the corona virus vaccines. But before being tested positive for Covit-19 and being admitted to the hospital, he advised his listeners to get vaccinated and chose not to get vaccinated because he thought he would not die. Probably not.
After Phil Valentine was transferred to the intensive care unit, Mark Valentine regretted that his brother was “not a loud voice for the vaccine.”
“I know he can, he said, ‘Go and get vaccinated. Stop worrying about politics. Stop worrying about all conspiracy theories,'” Mark Valentine said on July 25.
“He regrets not being very definite about the vaccine. Look at the data,” said Mark Valentine.
Phil Valentine has been a radio personality since the age of 20 and became a prominent Conservative presenter in protest of the income tax proposed by then-Republican Don Sandkist.
According to the newspaper, its program grew to broadcast nationwide, with less than 100 stations broadcasting for 12 years Tennessee.
“Bill Valentine was a visionary of the conservative movement who made a huge impact on the lives of many people in Tennessee,” US Senator Marsha Blackburn tweeted. My deepest condolences and prayers to Phil’s wife Susan and her family. May they be comforted and surrounded by love during this difficult time. ”
