2012 sponsor twitter links


Update and thank you 25th Jan

There are many SACK VILE KYLE facebook groups that rose to existence following the November 2011 outbursts from radio shock jock Kyle Sandilands, after he verbally attacked a newspaper journalist for criticising one of his recent television shows.  This vitriolic attack outraged both women and men across the country, and brought together one such group of dedicated Australians who are committed to working together to bring an end to this man’s reign of vulgarity and assault on public airwaves.  It therefore came as no surprise then, that when the women co-founders of this particular group, reached out to friends, family, co-workers and other networks, inviting them to join in their plight to bring this man down, the group membership went from national to global within months. Recent media stories about this group, and the work they have tirelessly put into the group objective, resulted in an explosion of requests to join the group.

We now have over 250 people working around the clock contacting companies that have advertisements on either the Kyle & Jackie O breakfast show or the Kyle & Jackie O website. A lot of the companies that we have approached stated they had not been aware that their advertisements had been placed in spots on the 2Day Fm schedule, that associated them with Kyle and Jackie O. This has been due to 3rd party media buyers, bonus placement spots and other marketing arrangements. These companies have worked with us to identify when and where their advertisements have appeared and have then promptly advised us that they have requested their brand not appear on any show or website associated with Kyle Sandilands.

In recent days our members have contacted and received notification that the following companies have withdrawn advertising from either the Kyle & Jackie O breakfast show, or Kyle & Jackie O website
Weight Watchers
Vitamin King
Bulla Splits
Booty Camp
William Blue College of Hospitality
Air New Zealand
Jenny Craig
Australian Institute of Fitness
Trilby Misso

Austereo sack scapgoats, protect Kyle

If Austereo are losing money and can not guarantee jobs they only have one person to blame for this. If Austereo had heeded the calls of tens of thousands of people in November and December last year, they would not have lost over $10 million in advertising revenue, they would not have had to use old sponsor advertisements. The aim of our campaign is to make it financially unviable to continue to employ Kyle Sandilands. This campaign is working, as evidenced by today’s article in The Australian; however we are ready, willing and able to stop the campaign as soon as Austereo or Kyle Sandilands announce Kyle’s parting from the radio. The departure of two successful, award winning executive directors of Austereo’s advertising agency is due to one person and one person only. We call upon Kyle Sandilands to do the right thing, take personal responsibility and remove himself from 2DayFm and Austereo before more people lose their jobs and livelihood over his remarks

Statement 23rd Jan 2012

On Thursday 19th January the Sydney Morning Herald and its related companies posted a story about our efforts to rid the public airways of Vile Kyle. In the four days that have passed since this story was originally published we have been inundated with requests from people that support our campaign and would like to like. Our group membership has grown from around 60 dedicated members to over 250 people who want to see Kyle gone and who are happy to follow our successful, non-confrontational strategy of hitting Austereo where it hurts, the hip pocket. These members join us in working tirelessly to achieve our goals and their efforts are outstanding. Since the article ran, a further five companies have either withdrawn their advertising or have indicated to us that they are looking into how and where their advertising dollars are spent, after being flooded with requests from our members to justify how supporting Kyle Sandilands can have a positive impact on their brand. We will continue to ask this via email, phone calls, Facebook and letters to those companies that continue to sponsor Kyle. Whilst this campaign is being run by four committed women from Australia, we have been supported by people and groups from all over the world. As well as the members in our group, members and staff from Collective Shout and Change.org have been steadfast in their support of both the four of us and our campaign. www.tinyurl.com/vilekyle (Facebook) @sackvilekylefb (twitter)
