CF VI (NASDAQ:CFVI) has fallen about -15% in afternoon trading after a report that popular podcast host Joe Rogan has rejected an offer to transfer his show to the platform of CF VI’s target, Rumble.
The SPAC was riding a two-day surge, which saw it hit a high of $18.52, after Rumble tweeted a $100 million offer sent by its CEO to get Rogan to switch to their social content platform. Rogan has had a bumpy few weeks at his show’s current home, Spotify (NYSE:SPOT), but Variety reported that he told a stand-up audience in Austin, Texas on Tuesday evening that he was staying put.
Spotify’s shares are correspondingly up 3.9% on the report, erasing its losses from earlier in the week amid the Rogan situation. Other “conservative stocks” also experienced bumps alongside Rumble’s earlier jump, including Digital World (NASDAQ:DWAC), which has a pending combination with Trump Media & Technology Group. It is now down about -3.4% on the day, but this could also be related to reports that Trump Media would be once again delaying the launch of its social media platform.
