South Carolina Radio Host Complains He Was Fired After Refusing to Comply with Vaccine Mandate

Tim Hill, a host of “The Game” show on 107.5 FM in Columbia, South Carolina, is complaining that he was fired by Cumulus Media, the company that owns the station, after he refused to comply with its vaccine mandate.

“Never thought it would come to this and am pretty sad,” Hill said in a video posted to his Twitter account. “It was something I feel like I needed to stand up for, I believed in sincerely. I would never tell anyone they had to be vaccinated or unvaccinated. I feel like this is a very personal choice.”

“If you have a sincerely held religious belief, then it becomes a matter of reasonable accommodation,” Hill told reporters. “They said they couldn’t reasonably accommodate me.
