Here’s more from the Conservative Brief:
Popular talk host and Fox News personality Dan Bongino posted a thank you to his social media pages following a surgical procedure that left him hospitalized for a short period.
“Doing okay! Out of surgery and the doc did a massive clean up operation on my elbow. Thanks for all of your prayers and messages. I really appreciate it,” the former Secret Service agent and NYPD officer noted.
Earlier this month, Bongino got the word after it was revealed his Fox show reigned supreme in the ratings. A report from Ad Week found that his Saturday night show was the most-watched primetime show in all of cable news.
In the 9 p.m. ET time slot, Bongino racked up 1.19 million total viewers. In the same time slot, CNN had 219,000, and MSNBC secured 315,000 total viewers. In the 8 p.m. ET time slot, Fox News host Brian Kilmeade received 1.06 million total viewers. CNN secured 282,000 total viewers, and MSNBC has 282,000 in that same slot.
Bongino made headlines late last year when he took time out on his nationally syndicated radio program to announce that he won’t renew his contract with Cumulus Media’s Westwood One when it comes due, effectively ending his show. Bongino, who also has a podcast independent of the radio show, explained that the decision to walk away “really sucks because I spent a lot of time building this, and I love it, and it’s grown on me.”
He also told listeners that the company approached him after industry giant Rush Limbaugh died following a battle with lung cancer in 2021 and asked him to take over the time slot. At the time, he said he did not feel like he could fill Limbaugh’s shoes.

“I said, ‘No, I don’t want it,’” Bongino recalled, but then added he reconsidered after he thought back to what became Limbaugh’s final broadcast.
“And I changed my mind. I said, ‘You know what? I’ll take it, but for a limited amount of time,’” he explained.
Beyond Bongino, Fox News continues to dominate cable news.
Bongino himself posted to Facebook an update:
Get better soon Dan!
