He said the decision “Really sucks because I spent a lot of time building this. “And I love it, and it’s grown on me.”
He told listeners that the company approached him following the death of Rush Limbaugh in 2021, and at the time, he wasn’t interested in trying to fill the talk legend’s shoes.
“I said ‘no, I don’t want it,'” Bongino told his audience. He reconsidered after thinking back to Limbaugh’s final show.
“And I changed my mind. I said ‘You know what”? I’ll take it, but for a limited amount of time’.”
Bongino and Cumulus Media have had public fights in the past, notably over the company’s vaccine mandate during the pandemic. The host took a hiatus from his program in protest of the policy.
Bongino said he still has a year and a half left in his current deal with the company. ‘I’m going to enjoy and savor every minute of it.”
He said the decision was not made due to finances and that his podcast, which is independent from his radio show will continue. Bongino also has a television show on Fox News.
Cumulus Media did not immediately respond to the Washington Examiner’s request for comment.
