In a post on Twitter, the host of midday show Off the Cuff said he was ordered by TSN parent company Bell Media to take the vaccine.

“After consultation with my doctor and based upon my medical conditions, I have decided not to take the shot,” Nilan wrote. “I sought a medical exemption and was denied.”

Nilan did not specify what those medical conditions are.

In what he described as an “unfair action by Bell Media,” Nilan’s contract was terminated on Tuesday.

“I want to thank all of my loyal listeners and the greatest fans in hockey for all of your support and friendship over these many years,” Nilan wrote on Twitter. “I would especially like to acknowledge publicly the support and friendship of Mitch Melnick and Wayne Bews, two gentlemen who have always been in my corner, as well as my co-host of nearly 10 years, Sean Campbell.”
