Helzberg Diamonds’ ads recently started running on Glenn Beck’s program on Fox News.
As with other advertisers, the StopBeck effort reached out to Helzberg Diamonds. We kindly requested that they follow the responsible action of hundreds of other former advertisers and refrain from advertising on Glenn Beck’s show.
In a statement sent to the StopBeck effort, Helzberg Diamonds advised that they were removing their ads from Glenn Beck’s show:
