Dan Fagan to return to airwaves Tuesday


Dan Fagan, a popular conservative talk show host, returns to the airwaves on Tuesday, Jan. 4, after more than two weeks of sick leave.

Fagan has been released from then hospital and said he is feeling well again. His heart started failing shortly after he had his second Covid vaccine on Aug. 12, he said, but he ignored the symptoms until two weeks ago, when he couldn’t breathe well enough to do the show. He called for an ambulance. After tests, doctors determined that his heart and other organs are healthy, but there was a buildup of fluid on the outside of the tissue around his lungs.

Fagan said that at one point he was close to death. He doesn’t know if the condition he suffered is a result of the vaccine but said it’s a “huge coincidence” that it started a week after the second Covid shot. However, he acknowledged that he had not been taking good care of his health, was overweight, and needed to exercise more. He said with better health habits, his heart should be able to repair the damage; there was no evidence of a heart attack, but his heart was not pumping properly.

Since then, he has lost weight, been exercising regularly and is eating healthy, he said, adding that he expects to live for many years.

Fagan, a conservative icon in Alaska who pioneered a now-retired conservative news blog, The Alaska Standard, and now broadcasts his morning show from New Orleans, can be heard on 650 KENI between 5:30 and 8 am weekdays; his is the highest-rated morning drive time radio show in Alaska.


  1. I’m a faithful listener though I don’t always agree with him. I was sad to hear that he had taken the jab since it has caused the death of over a million people now according to VAERS. Even young people and athletes are succumbing to the adverse effects. Millions more in years to come. They are experimental drugs and not real vaccines.

    Keep your blood pure folks.

    • This is simply false information. VAERS is a system in which any symptom or condition that a patient experiences within days or weeks after receiving a vaccine are reported. The fact that a symptom is reported does not mean it was caused by the vaccine. More than 496 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through December 20, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 10,688 reports of death (0.0022%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine. In the United States, over 500 billion jabs of the vaccines have been administered to around 250 million people. The fact that an extremely small percentage of persons who received a vaccine dose subsequently died, does not mean the vaccine caused those deaths. People die of natural causes every day, and some people who received Covid doses died of natural causes in the days or weeks after getting their shot.

      • Would you also agree that the fact that someone dies “with” Covid does not mean that they died “from” Covid?

        • It doesn’t matter at all if a person dies with covid, what matters is if it contributed to their death. If they would have continued to live if it were not for covid then they died because of covid. This is how deaths are recorded. As the CDC guidelines say “COVID-19 should not be reported on the death certificate if it did not cause or contribute to the death.”

      • OK Rick.
        Don’t forget your booster.
        Triple mask up.
        Don’t worry about increased risk of cancer, heart inflammation, myocarditist, immune disorders, brain swelling, infertility etc – I’m sure you’ll be ok. .
        Fauci, the WHO, CDC, BigPharma, and Bidrm said so, right.

    • This is a blatantly false lie. “ Reports of death after COVID-19 vaccination are rare. FDA requires healthcare providers to report any death after COVID-19 vaccination to VAERS, even if it’s unclear whether the vaccine was the cause. Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem. More than 496 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through December 20, 2021. During this time, VAERS received 10,688 reports of death (0.0022%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine.”. ‘https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/adverse-events.html’

  2. You believe the garbage reported on the VAERS? Have you actually used it? I mean as in entering data into it? A person can enter any lie they want into that thing. Good grief, the twaddle you people believe.

    • It’s a convoluted mess by design, a little like the IRS tax fraud hot-line– it too puts one off using it, mainly for fear of reprisal for getting involved!
      Therefore, I would postulate that those who ethically report to VAERS are only a tiny fraction of those who should.
      #thinkaboutit #allbydesign #broughttoyoubypfizer

    • And yet YOU believe the egregious and demonstrable lies and self-serving, pro-Big-Pharma propaganda and fearmongering over a very mild viral disease?
      And you are wrong (as all you radical leftists invariably are, on pretty much anything and everything), PaintedPony, as only certified DOCTORS can enter reports into the VAERS database.
      Good grief, the pro-establishment lies and twaddle you radical leftist extremists believe!

      • From the VAERS website:
        “The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a passive reporting system, meaning it relies on individuals to send in reports of their experiences. Anyone can submit a report to VAERS, including parents and patients.”
        Signs of people suffering from Mass Formation Psychosis include:
        “Facts no longer matter to them. Given the facts, they are be unable to come to sensible conclusions, even in their own best interests.”

        • Good job Suzanne isn’t big tech or she’d ban you for using the loaded phrase “Mass Formation Psychosis” as they did over on YouTube with Dr Robert Malone.

        • S . O .
          Its not soley a passive reporting system. Certain items are required to be reported by medical professionals.
          You just added inaccurate information to this convoluted crazy extreme thread .
          You say Jeff attacks attacks attacks like a leftist. There for a minute I thought you were talking about yourself.
          Were you smearing leftists or Jeff ? Calling someone an anti vaxxer because they oppose this gene therapy is a fat lie . Ya stoop pretty low dude . It has nothing to do with being anti vaxxer and everything to do with personal choice , liberty and safety as the jab isn’t very effective and has a unusual high percentage of adverse effects. As well as a lack of long term studies. But you knew all that and chose to lie and slander. Majority of People against this vaccine are not anti vax they are just pro choice and anti tyranny. S.o. likes to lie to unjustly twist arguments in his favor. Got to give you one dude , you are master at deception.
          To bad its true that there are no long term studies before implementing this vaccine and now all the vaccinated are the biggest test run ever.
          To bad Phyzer is hiding its studies. They fought the release. They fired the whistle blowers who presented that fetal cell lines were used .
          Congratulations everyone who is bold enough to take the gene therapy. Im praying it turns out well as you were doing it for the greater good and were duped into thinking it would keep you from catching covid. Ouch .
          The newest covid omi walks around your protection so easy
          Pray for America .

          • American,
            You sure used a lot of words.
            I am, as I have repeatedly said, for personal choice regarding vaccines. I do not support vaccine mandates. The Federal Government has absolutely no constitutional authority to make such mandates. I am also for people being informed and not simply accepting whatever they hear, from any dubious source, as gospel. Sadly some people are unable to discern truth from fiction.
            What I posted above that you responded to are direct quotes, the one from VAERS is exactly what is said on their homepage.
            If you have other information, instead of attacking me, please feel free to share that information. Teach me where I am wrong, don’t insult me, teach me.

        • Who do you believe???? Just wondering. There is no integrity in media. All drama . One of these thin skinned reporters will set of a chain of events with their flakey reporting that will kill millions. O wait they already have. Corona. Remember the freezer vans in new York the football fields with huge tents in Seattle even though there was enough cruise ship beds at anchor in Seattle to bed 100.000 people. Ah the horror of it all. And as it’s turned out mostly BS. And yet thin skinned cowards are seen in vehicles all alone with masks on everywhere. Welcome to the twilight zone.

      • Wrong. ANYONE can enter anything into VAERS. It is not peer reviewed or administered.

        There is an entire subreddit dedicated to the crazy stuff people find on VEARS from increase in penis size, making your hairline come back to a guy that said he grew a 6th finger.

        But don’t worry. I’m sure the fact Dan is 60+ years old, in questionable health (his words, not mine.)` and 50lbs overweight had nothing to do with anything.

        If someone with those issues died of COVID, you’d blame his/her health. Lol.

        It’s actually ridiculous.

      • You are delusional. I’m as conservative as they come although not part of the radical right. You need to quit posting lies or else do a little research. VAERS is for anyone to enter their information. I did after my first shot and that system was relentless in asking for information daily. You need a little bit more education.

        • PP,
          Jeff is a covid “conservative”, he doesn’t actually believe in any conservative values but has jumped on the anti-vaccine bandwagon that some people claiming to be “conservative” are riding. He recently admitted that his political principles originally derived from the “left” which makes sense, the way Jeff writes it’s easy to see the leftist influence. Lot’s of talk, little substance, attack, attack, attack, shout down anyone who dares question…rinse and repeat repeatedly.

  3. Get well, live long, live strong. Best wishes for a complete recovery and those lifestyle improvements!!!

  4. I listen to Dan every now and again, I used to listen to him more but covid has broken him like it has so many. People have devoted their lives to covid and they see covid in everything, it’s sad. I’m guessing that many of his devoted listeners are going to be surprised that he’s been vaccinated, although now he may or may not have a whole new shtick about how the vaccine may or may not have almost killed him.
    Get well Dan, get plenty of exercise, eat good real wholesome food and get your immune system healthy again. Hopefully you are staying safe down there in LA.

  5. Welcome back!
    The COVID Vax that you received, will help protect you in the event you catch the virus, since you are not at 100%

  6. Dan, great to hear you back on the radio. I listen most every day. Let’s “Make Dan Fagan Great Again” with a better lifestyle!

  7. This is one area I can actually agree… in a roundabout fashion… with many American conservatives. Covid isn’t really what folks like Dan Fagan should be worried about. Diabetes or heart disease will get most of them before Covid does. My advice is that instead of spending hours a day on OAN, Fox, or Newsmax or whatever…… spend 30 minutes a day exercising.
