When storms or snow blasted Michigan’s Upper Peninsula over the past three decades, viewers turned to Karl Bohnak as their trusted guide. Bohnak has been known not just for his steady approach to the forecast but also viral moments and bloopers that helped make the WLUC meteorologist an amiable community mainstay.

But when he refused to get vaccinated against the coronavirus as part of the media company’s mandate for all employees, Bohnak said this week that he was fired after 33 years as the station’s weatherman. The vaccination mandate at Gray Television, WLUC’s parent company, went into effect Wednesday, according to a copy of the policy obtained by The Washington Post — the same day Bohnak announced on Facebook that he had been dismissed.

“Since I chose not to take one of the shots, I was fired,” Bohnak wrote. “Many of you have taken one of these injections, and that is absolutely your right. It is also my right to choose the medical options I feel are right for me. I have authority over my body.”

  1. When did all these corporate bosses get their medical degrees?

    Firing employees for not taking the Covid19 injections which do jack shit in stopping the contraction of the virus, spreading the virus or even keeping you from getting very sick and possibly dying from the virus is not only unconstitutional but it’s immoral.

  2. Michigan is an “at will” state so he will only be entitled to what is left on his contract. Generally, conservatives have supported “at will” as it favours employers.

    What specific article of the Constitution does it violate? Be specific, quoting directly.
