Remaining Sponsors List

We are maintaining the remaining sponsors list at the link here. The short URL for this list is embedded in this post, so it can be shared. If you want to thank the sponsors who have pulled out of KRXQ, click here.

Here are some sample letters to advertisers that you can personalize:

Institution sample:


Please pull your advertising from KRXQ Radio in Sacramento.

I listened to KRXQ Radio’s segment about trans-gender boys.  I can’t imagine anything more cowardly than two grown men advocating violence against children.

Obviously the disk jockeys have the right to their opinions, and the right to voice them.  But framing Rob and Arnie’s rant as a First Amendment issue is disingenuous.  As a station they are responsible for the ignorance and hatred they promote.  People–children–get killed over these issues.  There’s more to free speech than the right to mouth off, and more to life than ratings.

Intentionally or otherwise, your continuing advertisements on KRXQ Radio indicate your support of Rob and Arnie’s positions.  I find this totally inconsistent with your mission as a hospital, and ask you to rethink your sponsorship of KRXQ.

Sincerely,
Armando Wilson

Which is really too bad, as Dr. Pepper has always been my favorite soda.

Sincerely,
Armando Wilson
