Underwrite Programming on Indie Air Radio


About Us


Indie Air Radio is a curated, fair trade Internet radio station and is cooperatively owned with its associated artists and DJ’s. Our commercial free broadcast offers a wide variety of music and public affairs programming and is similar to public and community radio. In order for us to be 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 recognizing a business, organization or individual made in exchange for funding. Underwriting is more affordable than commercial radio or print advertising and is a great way to connect with our listeners while providing direct support to our DJ’s and the station. If you are a business or an organization it is likely that underwriting sponsorship is tax deductible.

You can view our underwriting sponsors here.


How Does it Work?

 Select a DJ Show to sponsor. You will receive personal on-air recognition including your web address and a brief tag line about you during your sponsored DJ Shows broadcasts. Our DJ Shows air 2 times per week.

You will be included in on-going audio promos recognizing our underwriting sponsors.

Your logo and web address will be included on your sponsored DJ Shows program pages.

Your logo and web address will be included on our Underwriting Sponsors main page.

 50% of your monthly underwriting subscription will be paid to your selected DJ(s), assisting them with the on-going creation of their show. The station will retain the additional 50% and apply it to our on-going operating costs.

As a part of being an underwriting sponsor you will have the same privileges and benefits as our Beta-Bronze members. You can view all benefits here.

 You may cancel your underwriting sponsorship at any time. We do not carry contracts.


What Does it Cost?
