(Natural News) A veteran weatherman for a television station in Michigan who was very well-loved by his community has been fired for refusing to be vaccinated against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).
Karl Bohnak has served as the weatherman for WLUC-TV for over 33 years, bringing up-to-date weather reports to people all over Michigan's central and western regions as well as the Upper Peninsula. WLUC's parent company, Gray Television, had instituted a vaccine mandate for all of its employees.
"Today, it is with a heavy heart, I announce after over 33 years, I am no longer employed at TV6," wrote Bohnak in a long Facebook post detailing his firing.
"I am sad, but, to borrow a quote from a famous ballplayer, 'I'm the luckiest man on the face of the earth' because I had a dream as a kid to be a weatherman," he continued, quoting Lou Gehrig's famous farewell speech. "That dream came true and to top it off, I got to broadcast weather for one of the most challenging, beautiful spots in the United States. As an added bonus, the people I broadcast to all across Upper Michigan were so kind and encouraging. Thank you for watching."
