Corporate Support

You Can Join This Network Of Supporters.

When your business becomes an underwriter (or Corporate Supporter) on Northern Public Radio, not only do you contribute to the success of a valued community service, you reach an exceptional audience of active, educated adults with above-average income.

Our underwriters include organizations of all sizes - from large financial, health, and law institutions… to innovative technology driven companies… to traditional and specialty retailers… to arts and educational organizations.

There’s a lot more to learn about our uniquely-engaged listeners, too. You'll find links to download our Media Kit and our Top Five Countdown of reasons your company's message must be heard on Northern Public Radio at the bottom of this page.

A Different Way To Reach Choice Consumers

Underwriting on public radio differs from buying commercial time on other media. For one, the messages are shorter and more direct - basically your company name followed by a 15 word description, per FCC guidelines. By nature, our listeners actually prefer this approach and are more likely to trust and appreciate the businesses that align with public radio (see the “Halo Effect” page of our Media Kit, linked below).

Benefits Of Public Radio Partnerships

  1. Building name recognition / brand loyalty
  2. Communicating your connection to the local community
  3. Your message stands out!
  4. Enhancing credibility
  5. Increasing your visibility before a highly-desirable audience
