Indie Air Radio is a fair trade Internet radio station that is owned cooperatively with its associated artists and podcasters. Our commercial free broadcast consists of a variety of music mixed with public affairs programs and is similar to public and community radio. In order for us to remain commercial free we rely on financial support from listening members and underwriters.
What is Underwriting?
Underwriting is a combination of web presence and on-air announcements that recognize a business, organization or individual and is made in exchange for funding. Underwriting is a great way to connect with our listeners and to support our podcasts and the station. If you are a business or an organization it is likely that underwriting sponsorship is tax deductible.
