Radio talk show host Phil Valentine died Saturday, August 21, after spending over a month in the hospital, reports SuperTalk 99.7.

“We are extremely saddened to report that our host and friend Phil Valentine has passed away. Please keep the Valentine family in your thoughts and prayers,” SuperTalk 99.7 wrote in a Facebook post.

Phil Valentine was diagnosed with COVID-19 in July and shortly after was hospitalized. He suffered from COVID pneumonia and other side effects. Read more here. 

According to his bio, Phil was born and raised in a small town of about 3,000 people in rural eastern North Carolina. As a child he frequented his father’s law office and thought he was destined to be a lawyer. Once at college, he changed career paths when a friend suggested he get in the radio business. And the rest is history…

By 2003, Phil had received eight Nashville AIR awards and had the most listened-to political talk show in the city. On January 2, 2007, Westwood One launched The Phil Valentine Show into syndication. The show is now heard on over 110 radio stations across the country through the Westwood One Radio Network. Phil has also authored books and appeared in TV commercials and movies.


  1. So sorry to hear about Phil. Listened to his radio show for many years. I’m deviated to hear of his passing. Prayers and thoughts go out to his family and friends. There’s now a big void on the radio station that cannot be filled. Love yah Phil you will be missed but never forgotten.

    • Hopefully what is forgotten is the straight up bullshit that this radio station let this guy spew for the last 18 months. That would be a start. Leave the void on the radio until they can hire somebody that respects others in this world instead of a brainwashed QANon sheep like Phil turned out to be. At least he got his freedoms

      • Such a miserable person you are. There’s a time and place for snide comments. This isn’t one of them.

        • There’s a time and place for snide comments yet Phil was given almost 2 yrs to spread garbage information on the radio. Nobody did anything to stop it.
          His ivermectin treatment, doing his part for herd immunity, no masks, you dont need a vax, his less than 1% chance of dying, vaccine would give him a heart attack or paralysis. This guy leaves a legacy of absolute dogshit. Stop celebrating him

  2. Very sad but how many of his misguided listeners followed his advice and refused to take the vaccine seriously? They very well may have suffered the same fate as he thanks to their blind loyalty to him and other naysayers like him.

    • You are a disgusting troll…..there are thousands who are unvaccinated who have caught the virus and have done just fine. Take your liberal logic elsewhere.

      • @Jason – In December 2020, Phil Valentine said, “What are my odds of getting COVID? They’re pretty low. What are my odds of dying from COVID if I do get it? Probably way less than one percent.” D’oh! Looks like Phil’s Mathematics Degree from Trump University wasn’t so great.

        Get a clue you smooth brainer – your determination to “own the libs” might put you in a grave just like good ol’ Phil. If that moron had taken the vaccine, he would still be on the air spewing his garbage.

      • He F-ed around and then he found out.

        My advice to everyone here is to not do as Phil did.

        Get vaccinated.

      • Phil said he was doin just fine too! Its just a cough! LOOOLL

        Ill see you on CNN soon askin for prayers and GoFundMe donations just like the rest of the GOP trash.

        Keep gettin your freedoms pal. But when they put you on the vent dont waste our time with prayers OK

    • This was another preventable death. Too bad Phil got brainwashed by DeSantis and Abbott and Trump. He was still young. Now he’s loaded with antibodies. But he was right, vaccine didn’t kill him!!!

  3. I was hoping for a positive outcome for Phil. I have listened to his show for over 20 years. Had Phil survived this he would have become an iconic advocate for the vaccine and I am certain that he would have been responsible for a massive increase of people getting vaccinated. God bless Phil and his family, including his tight knit “radio family.” Hopefully, WTN will somehow turn this into a positive campaign to get more listeners vaccinated against the China Virus.

    • He coulda been an iconic advocate last year. Too late now.
      He chose QAnon and Trump. Big mistake pal.
      Stop celebrating this guy who had no regard for anybody UNTIL he got sick
