Host who opposed vaccinations dies after battle with virus

Marc Bernier, a talk radio host in Daytona Beach for 30 years, died after a three-week battle with COVID-19.

Bernier, 65, has been remembered in the Florida community in recent days as a conservative who sought out and aired others’ points of view.

He also was an outspoken opponent of vaccinations. 

Volusia County, Florida Sheriff Mike Chitwood, a longtime guest on Bernier’s radio show on WNDB, said a representative of the Florida station confirmed to him that Bernier died Saturday night. 

Chitwood said he had appeared regularly on Bernier’s show for the last 15 years, first as Daytona Beach police chief and then as sheriff. He said the two didn’t always agree on everything, but that never got in the way of their friendship.
