The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports:
Marc Bernier, a talk radio host in Daytona Beach for 30 years, died after a three-week battle with COVID-19, WNDB and Southern Stone Communications announced on Twitter Saturday night.
Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood, a longtime guest on Marc Bernier’s WNDB radio show, said a representative of the station confirmed to him that Bernier died Saturday night sometime after 6 p.m. Bernier had issues with vaccines for years.
Mel Stack, an attorney and friend who regularly advertised on the program, said Bernier’s anti-vaccination views were not based on politics, but personal experience based on how he believed vaccines had impacted people near to him. Bernier’s concerns extended to the COVID-19 vaccines.
It’s with great sadness that WNDB and Southern Stone Communications announce the passing of Marc Bernier, who informed and entertained listeners on WNDB for over 30 years. We kindly ask that privacy is given to Marc’s family during this time of grief. pic.twitter.com/vXQIAtVN9e
