My Pillow CEO Pulls Advertising from Salem Radio Network

Mike Lindell said the network singled him out by attempting to cancel him.

Inside Radio is reporting that My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell is pulling all of his advertising from Salem Radio Network.

Lindell said the network singled him out by attempting to cancel him. Lindell has been an outspoken critic of election integrity and sincerely believes that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump. 

Salem isn’t the only broadcast network that Lindell is feuding with. Business Insider reports that Lindell planned to protest outside of Fox News because he believes the network played a big part in facilitating Biden’s victory over Trump. 

“With Salem, nobody gets to sell My Pillow products going forward,” Lindell continued. “You are done selling My Pillow products!”

Salem Radio Network is home to conservative talk shows hosts, including Hugh Hewitt, Dennis Prager, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, and Larry Elder.

Lindell’s products are being removed from Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s.

WFMD Kicks off Its “Christmas Cash for Kids” Fundraising Program

The week-long radiothon program began in 1975 at the now-defunct WZYQ in Frederick

WFMD Radio in Frederick, Maryland, will kick off its flagship fundraising program Monday called “Christmas Cash for Kids.”

The week-long radiothon program began in 1975 at the now-defunct WZYQ in Frederick. A deejay received a distressing phone call from one of his listeners. There was a family in the Frederick area that would have had no Christmas had it not been for the generosity of the station, which raised $1,500, enough to provide Christmas for several families.

Since then, “Christmas Cash for Kids” has become a holiday tradition in Frederick County. It has evolved into the single largest provider of children’s toys and clothing for those who would otherwise have to go without. 

“For me, the most distinctive aspects of this event are zero overhead and that all the money stays local,” said Frank Mitchell, WFMD Program Director. “Deserving recipients are all vetted, and contributions come from kid’s piggy banks, corporate donations, and everyone in-between.”

Last year, WFMD raised $ $128,201.32 due to the generosity of caring people in Mid-Maryland. Once again, the Salvation Army will partner with the station to assist in this annual tradition.
