Market your business or organization while supporting one of the Triangle’s three best local radio stations (Indy Week Best of the Triangle 2018), an all-volunteer station serving the community since 2004.
You have the opportunity to sponsor the entire station at three different levels and receive daily announcements or select the weekly show that reaches the audience you want. Because there is no commercial clutter, your message will always stand out. Your announcements will be heard and remembered by the show’s listeners, who favor those businesses supporting their favorite station.
See below for information about our partnership levels.
