Clear Channel Won't Run Women's Center Ads Because They're ‘Divisive’


News broke Wednesday that a Wichita radio station owned by Clear Channel chose not to run ads for the South Wind Women’s Center because of “decency standards.” They’ve since elaborated to explain that yes, the ads was too controversial and they try to air “non-divisive” content at all times.

Women, Action & the Media is reporting that Rob Burton – whose title according to LinkedIn is Vice President/Market Manager for KZSN but is described elsewhere as station General Manager of the Clear Channel station in Wichita – gave the following statement:

As members of the Wichita community, KZSN has a responsibility to use our best judgment to ensure that advertising topics and content are as non-divisive as possible for our local audience.

TL;DR: Women’s health is a “divisive” issue.
