Just a Reminder: Boycott Clear Channel


One of our local DJs is at it again. His name is Bob Dumas (rhymes with Dumb Ass?). He works for G-105. He likes to insult people. Apparently it's good for ratings. This time Mr. Dumas insulted American Indians. He called them lazy. Haha. What a Jokester, Mr. Dumas is.

The local Indian leaders are upset and have called for his firing. The station suspended him for 3 days instead.

In 2003, Mr. Dumas encouraged motorists to run bicyclists off the road and throw Yoo-Hoo bottles at them. Haha. What a Jokester, Mr. Dumas is.

The local cycling advocates were upset and called for his firing. The station suspended him for 2 days instead.

It feels like we're caught in a rut here.

G-105 is owned by Clear Channel. Want to have the last laugh at DJs like Mr. Dumas? Stop listening to Clear Channel radio.

Here's the list of 20 stations they own in North Carolina.

You can search for stations they own in your state here.

Also, feel free to drop Lisa Dollinger an email at lisacdollinger@clearchannel.com. Or give her a call at 1-210-822-2828. She's in Communications / Media Relations for Clear Channel so she'll love to hear from you. Haha.

Update: A friend in Washington state just forwarded this note about a new Clear Channel show.

A radio show for cyclists is being launched by Clear Channel sports station 1460 KXNO in Des Moines, Iowa. It's scheduled to air Sundays at 6-7 p.m. CT beginning on April 20 and be available worldwide at http://www.kxno.com. The show host is longtime cycling advocate Kim West, who promises to deliver his "provocative and entertaining insight" into racing, racers, touring, advocacy issues and lots more in a call-in format.

That does not change Clear Channel's responsibility for this local mess. Clear Channel: why do you keep Mr. Dumas on the payroll?

Thanks for putting this info together Mike. I will write Clear Channel (again) expressing my displeasure with Mr. Dumb Ass's behavior and ask that they considering firing him yet again. But since I'm already on notice with them as one who will never listen to a Clear Channel station, I doubt they'll pay much attention. If we all vote with our ears, maybe something will happen.
