We Protested Nellie’s Eggs Ads: WAMU 88.5 Listened!
Dear UPC Supporter:
WAMU 88.5 has responded favorably to our request to remove ads for Nellie’s Eggs!
We are thrilled to share this great news with you from WAMU 88.5, Washington, DC’s NPR station:
“Thank you for this feedback regarding Nellie’s Free Range
Eggs. Your voice is critically important to WAMU and we take feedback
seriously as an institution. WAMU evaluates all corporate sponsor
messaging closely before it airs to ensure it meets our messaging
guidelines. However, we greatly value listener feedback and at times
may reverse our decisions on the content we elect to air on behalf of
our sponsors. We have reassessed the Nellie’s Free Range Eggs
messages and have elected to suspend the campaign at this time.”
– Allison Kennedy, Senior Manager, Audience Engagement, July 3, 2019
We thank everyone who took action on behalf of the hens who are being falsely portrayed by Pete and Gerry’s Organics, the owner of Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, as enjoying “humane practices” and being “loved.” “Lies, Lies, Lies,” as Eliza Doolittle sang in My Fair Lady.
Here is our June 26th alert including our Letter to WAMU 88.5:
WAMU – Stop Advertising Nellie’s “Free‑Range” Eggs!
Thank You for Being a Voice for the Birds
