Guitar Center Drops KRXQ: Joins the Nice List

Finally, it should be noted that yet another advertiser has dropped their contract with the station. Guitar Center Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Norman Hajjar, directly reached out to GLAAD following emails from concerned community members.

Norman has provided us with this statement to share with our readers:

Last Thursday, I asked our media agency to speak to KRXQ about the outrageous comments made by their morning on-air team. I wasn’t satisfied with the station’s response. So we decided to pull our dollars from the station.

It’s simple: wrong is wrong. We don’t want our brand associated with such epic insensitivity.

Guitar Center now becomes the 11th confirmed advertiser to pull their contract from KRXQ.
