So far Grolsch, Kopparberg, Nivea, Ikea, OVO Energy, Octopus Energy, Open University, Bosch, Boomin, Indeed, Vodafone, Specsavers and LV have either pulled or paused their advertising on GB News after customers raised concerns. A huge thanks to everyone who’s taken action and helped make this happen.
Advertising sales for GB News are handled by Sky Media. If you work for a company that buys programmatic advertising from Sky, it may be worth checking with them to ensure that your ads aren’t placed on GB News.
Many thanks to the Stop Funding Hate volunteers who have come together to help identify GB News advertisers.
