Good for Business. Good for Image. Good for Community.

Why Radio?

Research shows that businesses who give to, or give back to, their local community and are seen as in a positive light. Investment and alignment with community organizations demonstrates and portrays virtuous intention and a vigorous commitment to that said community or locale.

 

When you underwrite with KVMR, you are supporting a valuable and valued community asset that is positively received locally, regionally and on the internet. Underwriting with KVMR is reinforcing the “shop local” adage.

 

KVMR community radio portrays values that are: independent, original, organic, creative, community-minded, autonomous and intelligent.

As a medium, radio’s greatest strength is frequency. Frequency is the ability to reach a prospect many times over a given period, with the end result being top-of-mind recall.

For information on supporting KVMR as a business underwriter, please contact Melissa Seibold, KVMR Account Executive, at underwriting@kvmr.org or call 530-362-7006.

While KVMR’s on-air underwriting is limited by FCC regulations to value neutral, non-promotional content, the underwriting message is informative, listing your business location, business hours and services offered. Using live on-air scripts, KVMR programmers will regularly thank your business for being a regional business that supports community radio in the Sierra Nevada Foothills and the Sacramento Valley.

 

KVMR can change your underwriting copy as needed. Your business support recognition on KVMR may be: “KVMR receives support from . . . your business name here.”

Using live, on-air scripts containing factual, value-neutral copy, KVMR programmers will thank you and your business for supporting community radio while broadcasting your dignified marketing message to thousands of KVMR listeners at a time.
