Multimedia personality Dan Bongino thinks that the person or group trying to damage Tucker Carlson’s career is failing. The situation surrounding Carlson has been ongoing for two weeks as the media speculates what he will do next.

Bongino shared his thoughts during his daily Rumble show.

According to Bongino, the explanation commonly given for Carlson’s departure from Fox News doesn’t make sense. Some people have suggested that Carlson was fired because Fox settled a defamation lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million.

“It seems like whoever is trying to hurt him, why would leak this stuff (video) to Media Matters? Let me explain; Media Matters is a leftist goon organization. It’s a bunch of kids in their mama’s basem*nts. They sit around eating Ben and Jerry’s and pat each other on the back; they probably watch p*rn all day. It’s like a joke of an organization, and it’s a clown show.”

Bongino suggested that if someone at Fox News wanted to retaliate against Carlson and leaked a video to a left-leaning organization like Media Matters, it would not be long before Media Matters exposed the leak to the public and turned against Fox News.

A leaked video obtained by Media Matters showed Carlson openly criticizing the streaming service FOX Nation. He expressed frustration that the high-quality content created for the platform would go to waste due to usability issues.

“You have to dig deeper; something is going on here that’s difficult to explain,” Bongino explained about a text message from Carlson allegedly sent after January 6.

“A couple of weeks ago, I watched a video of people fighting on the street in Washington. A group of Trump guys surrounded an Antifa kid and started pounding the living s—t out of him. It was three against one, at least,” Carlson said.

“I want to realize that this was not a public statement by Tucker Carlson,” added Bongino. “This was how the man felt; he was texting privately someone else. Again, I’m not sure how this damages Tucker Carlson. He’s talking about sympathizing with an Antifa kid, even though he hates his politics because he’s getting beaten half to death. I am perplexed as to how they thought this (text) would destroy his (Carlson) reputation.”

Brian Kilmeade — in addition to hosting Fox & Friends on Fox News — hosts a successful talk radio show syndicated by Fox News Radio. He believes that program wouldn’t have reached the heights it has without the help of Sid Rosenberg and 77 WABC.

While joining Rosenberg on Friday, Kilmeade gave the New York host and station props for where his own show is in its success.

“You are killing it, Brian Kilmeade,” Rosenberg told the Fox News host.

He had congratulated the host for his ability to secure an exclusive interview with former President Donald Trump this week. That interview was originally scheduled to last for 10 minutes, but the Republican nominee ended up speaking for 25 minutes.

“I appreciate the support, man,” Kilmeade said during his weekly appearance on the 77 WABC morning show. “This show would not be close to successful without you, so I appreciate it, and everybody there at WABC.”

The Brian Kilmeade Show is heard from 9 AM-Noon, and airs from 10 AM-Noon on the Red Apple Media-owned station.

WGN Radio afternoon host Lisa Dent has plenty to celebrate, as she was named the Best Non-Morning Drive Talk/Personality Host in a major market in the 49th annual Gracie Awards.

Dent spent decades working on country radio — being inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame in 2016 — before shifting to working at WGN Radio in 2021.

And while she spent the majority of her career outside the talk radio space, she shared that she’s always been a talk host at heart.

“Always,” she said. “That’s why I think for 25 years in my career I did mornings, so I had more freedom to talk about what was happening and get away from the music a little bit and really be focused on what was happening in Chicago.”

Lisa Dent started her radio career as an assistant chief engineer in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, because the station wouldn’t put women on the air. She eventually worked her way to stations in Rockford, San Diego, Minneapolis, and other stations in Chicago before signing on with the news/talk outlet. And despite all of her travels, she says she had her sights set on her current station.

“The whole time, from the moment I left Rockford, my focus was always WGN,” Dent told hosts John Williams and Bob Sirott after the news was announced that she took home the Gracie Award.

“It took us a while to get good at that. We sucked at it at first.”

Dave Ramsey has built a multi-million dollar company on a set of principles entitled The Ramsey Way. However, he admits it wasn’t easy to get that foundation set completely.

While discussing hiring and getting employees to operate in the manner he’d like them to with an entrepreneur during the EntreLeadership Podcast, Dave Ramsey shared with the contractor from Atlanta that he himself had to go through some trial and error to get his business working the way he envisioned it.

“We’ve got like a ‘Ramsey Way’ to do things. So if you come in and do sales, and you’re a good salesman, that’s different than doing sales at Ramsey,” the company founder said. “And so you’re gonna walk with one of our salespeople for a little while, and you gotta learn the ‘Ramsey Way’ to make that sale.”

Dave Ramsey admitted the process takes time, and Ramsey Solutions is proof of that.

“It took us a while to get good at that. We sucked at it at first. And so we would have salespeople doing sales five different ways. And we had all these inconsistencies and different kinds of complaints from different kinds of customers, depending on who their rep was,” said Ramsey. “Somebody can function within their personality, but we’ve got some core tenants on accounting, some core tenants on project management, and some core tenants on sales.”
