In 2016 and 2017, Entercom partnered with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) to launch a nationwide public service announcement campaign promoting EDF’s plan to turn the corner on climate change. Entercom donated $1 million worth of free airtime to run three PSA spots that ran across 124 Entercom stations in 27 top markets.
In the spots, acclaimed actress Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Office) expressed her motivation as a parent to ensure a healthy planet for generations to come. Academy Award-nominated actor, Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda, House of Lies), praised EDF’s ability to work with both political parties in Washington on behalf of the environment. The actors both donated their time to the project.
“I’m happy to help introduce more people to the great work of EDF,” said Cheadle. “We’re in the fight of our lives against climate change and EDF has been a real leader in that struggle. So I hope this helps.”
