More on KRXQ's Sponsors

There's an update over at GLAAD (sorry I just now posted this, but I had to work today--ugh). But good news, because McDonald's has decided to drop their sponsorship of KRXQ.

From GLAAD's page:

McDonald’s wrote:

McDonald’s has a proud legacy of diversity and inclusion. The views expressed by the hosts are not consistent with our core values.

As such, we are in the process of withdrawing advertising from KRXQ until further notice.

McDonald’s USA LLC, Pacific Sierra Region

The global fast food chain now becomes the tenth company to either retract or to not renew its advertising contract with KRXQ.

The entire listing of companies include:

  • Chipotle
  • Snapple
  • Sonic
  • Bank of America
  • Verizon
  • Carl’s Jr (CKE Restaurants)
  • Wells Fargo
  • Nissan North America
  • AT&T
  • McDonald’s
I wonder how much time before all sponsorship is dropped and the station realizes they're better off without Rob and Arnie (hint to KRXQ--YOU'RE LOSING MONEY ON THESE ASSHOLES).

I'd love to see an announcement from KRXQ that's pretty much a "waah.... we're sorry. We'll do better next time!" cry. It would feel so productive.
