Peter Collins, talk show host at Novamradio.com received this list yesterday.
It a copy of an email that went out from ABC Radio Networks.
The message reads
“Please be advised that Hewlett Packard has purchased schedules with ABC Radio Networks between (certain dates). Please make sure you black out this advertiser on your station, as they do not wish to air on any Air America affiliates. Please see below for a complete list of advertisers requesting that none of their commercials air within Air America programming.”
The memo lists 90 companies that are included in what appears to be an apparent boycott of all Air America Radio affiliates of ABC.
TVNL has been able to decipher the names of most of the companies on the list, with the exception of a few that were too difficult to read.
These are the companies on the list:
American Heart Association
Bank of America
BMVV Motor cycles
Chattamâ€¦. Phisoderm, Gold Bond, Selsun Salon, Ultimate Healing Lotion,.
Johnson & Johnson
Masterfoods (all brands}
National Cattleman Beef
