Family says Phil Valentine in “grave condition, will take a miracle for him to survive” – on a ventilator with COVID19

Share this article...

The family of 99.7 WWTN’s Phil Valentine Monday morning posted on social media that the conservative talk radio host is gravely ill, and it will take a miracle for him to survive. He remains on life support at Williamson Medical Center, in need of ECMO, but not stable enough for transport. In addition to COVID-19, he is dealing with pneumonia, a secondary infection, irregular heart rate, AFIB, kidney failure, and uncontrolled blood pressure. The family has removed all health updates from public view.

On June 20th, Phil Valentine, who was unvaccinated, released this parody song, called ‘Vaxman’

Song parody of Taxman by The Beatles. Vaxman by Phil Valentine & The Heartthrobs.

Additional lyrics by Phil Valentine

Let me tell you how it will be.
And I don’t care if you agree,
‘Cause I’m the Vaxman.
Yeah, I’m the Vaxman.

If you don’t like me coming ‘round
Be thankful I don’t hold you down.
‘Cause I’m the Vaxman.
Yeah, I’m the Vaxman.

If you try to cry
I’ll block your tweet.
If you ask me why
I’ll block your street.
If you try to fly
I’ll block your flight.
If you try to lie
I’ll take your rights.

‘Cause I’m the Vaxman.
Yeah, I’m the Vaxman.
And you’re living for no one but me.


Conservative talk-radio show host Phil Valentine remains hospitalized with COVID-19 at Williamson Medical Center, just outside of Nashville. His brother says Phil is “fighting for his life”, and this is likely to be resolved in a time frame of weeks, not days. The family is calling on everyone to please get vaccinated.

He was diagnosed with COVID-19 on July 9th, and has progressively gotten worse, having to be hospitalized over the weekend. Williamson County Medical Center confirmed his stay late Tuesday to Scoop: Nashville after many listeners noted his absence on-air, but his current condition wasn’t publicly available.

The family released this statement Thursday

Phil contracted the Covid virus a little over a week ago & has since been hospitalized & is in very serious condition, suffering from Covid Pneumonia and the attendant side effects. He is in the hospital in the critical care unit breathing with assistance but is NOT on a ventilator. We’d ask that everyone please refrain from contacting him while he is in the hospital.Phil would like for his listeners to know that while he has never been an “anti-vaxer” he regrets not being more vehemently ‘Pro-Vaccine’, and looks forward to being able tomore vigorously advocate that position as soon as he is back on the air, which we all hope will be soon.Phil & his family would like for all of you to know that he loves ya’ll and appreciates your concern, thoughts & prayers more than you will ever know.Please continue to pray for his recovery and PLEASE GO GET VACCINATED!

-Mark Valentine, Brother.

    What a MORONIC slant here…
    Everyone who gets hit by a truck or mangled on a motorcycle ALSO dies of CONvid…
    Phil’s mistake was going into a hospital to be MURDERED by “AMA protocols”…..

    1. Chris Snyder

      Not really.. this article is just stating facts. The people who helped FL set a record for covid hospitalizations are in there because they have covid.

      That said, I don’t push people to get vaccinated. We need unvaxxers to help us learn how Delta spreads, hospitalizes, and kills people… later we’ll need them to track “long hauler” effects.

    2. DDDDDuane is a sheep

      The whole “everyone who dies died of COVID” lie you’re spreading has been proven long ago. It’s part of a disinformation campaign, and you fell for it like the sheep you are.

      I’d say ask Phil if it’s fake, but he can’t answer because he has COVID and he is going to die.

    3. Viviane Aston

      Praying for him and his family. I had 2 children that were in grave condition that made it through by the grace of God. You are in our prayers.

    4. Christy

      phil had to go to the hospital he could not breath.Phil is a smart man he’s sick.

  2. God

    Maybe God gave us the vaccine

  3. Debby

    The stupidity of the people posting comments on all platforms about Phil Valentine amazes me. So many are vicious and written with such ignorance and disregard for human life. I hope these people can answer for their comments when their time is up and they are kneeling before God. I don’t condone what this man has done when it comes to telling everyone that there is no need to get the vaccine unless they think they will die from the virus, and I have even stopped listening to this guy months ago because of what he was peddling, but I have human decency and won’t wish him dead – no matter how many people listened to a radio show host over their MD.

    what an idiot… got what you deserve…..did they try bleach…

  12. Kranz Kerdinand

    I love his parody of Taxman. Brilliant and topical.

    It inspired me to write my own.

    What rhymes with ‘Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation’?

  13. Tom

    If he was a smart man he would have gotten vaccinated instead of mocking vaccines.. karma, darwinisim at work.

  14. Earl

    I pray he pulls through. The government has been awful in probiding helpful information regarding covid beyond just saying, “get vaccinated “. Other countries like israel and the UK provide more info and it is not nearly as clearcut as the US government says. Do vaccines help? I believe so ,but will there be some long term effects? Time will tell.
    I suppose in Phil’s case the vaccine would have been the better decision. I hopeAll those on here talking about karma and darwin aren’t so brutally judged or punished for their wrong decisions.

  15. Nancy

    I am shocked by the horrific comments here. I knew that people in general were getting meaner and more vicious, but this is out of control. I thank God Himself for the kind and considerate people left in this world. It’s splitting our society into 2 groups…….those who still have manners and try to be good and helpful to our neighbors, and those that can’t wait to say and do something evil.

    1. Donna

      I completely agree! The people like Phil valentine who mocked others getting the vaccine is beyond the pale. And seriously, the people on here who claim to be a child of God are horrible, terrible people. I’m glad you gave me the courage to speak out along with you. Thank you!
