Clear Channel Communications announced they would take the billboards down because they did not comply with the company’s policy of including a sign’s sponsor on political messaging boards.
Clear Channel Communications owns the billboards, but an anonymous “family foundation” purchased the space.
“We reviewed the situation and in light of the fact that these billboards violate our policy of not accepting anonymous political ads, we asked the client how they would prefer to work with us to bring the boards into conformance with our policy,” said Jim Culinan, vice president of corporate communications for Clear Channel Outdoor. “The client thought the best solution was to take the boards down, so we are in the process of removing them.”
