  • Allstate
To: Franklin.Chance@allstate.com

Dear Mr. Chance:

Thank you for your response to my inquiry about Allstate and Air America. Now that you have assured me that your company has not instituted an advertising boycott of progressive radio, I urge you to consider buying time on some of the stations that provide this type of programming. I am certain that you will be impressed not only by their demographics but also by the loyalty of their listeners.

I would be interested to see if any of these companies also prohibit advertising on conservative talk shows. If they do, then we should assume they have a policy to support neither side. If they do support conservative talk radio, then they should be boycotted.

My well-placed sources have identified that the Vice President/Director of Sales, Brad Samuel ( BradSamuel@ClearChannel.com / (858) 292-2000 ) is the key driving force behind the move to kill off KLSD.

Should you care to contact Mr. Samuel, please use your best judgment on the message. I encourage you to tell a friend as well - this is your local AM broadcast voice for the information you require.
