Business Support

Northern Community Radio would like to thank all our business underwriters for their strong support.  These businesses understand the value of having their name associated with Northern Community Radio.  Why?  Because Northern Community Radio members support the businesses that support Northern Community Radio.  They will sometimes drive 50 miles to buy something at a business that supports Northern Community Radio versus going across the street to one that doesn't.  Will you provide us with a name of a business?

Northern Community Radio is independent and regionally focused radio, accessible to the community. Through underwriting on Northern Community Radio, underwriters connect themselves to loyal listeners who are grateful that you help keep Northern Community Radio on the air. Northern Community Radio listeners expect this support to be honest, direct and in minimal form. In turn, Northern Community Radio listeners will support underwriters first and longer without regard to current sales or promotions from competitors.

Northern Community Radio listeners are typically 29-54 years old, a cross-section of educated professionals and non-professionals, environmentally and socially aware and active in their communities.

Northern Community Radio' s signal reaches 100,000 people living in Northern Minnesota Currently, over 1500 families are members of Northern Community Radio. Because only 10% of public radio listeners support their local public radio station, Northern Community Radio estimates having 15,000 discreet listeners per week.

Northern Community Radio supplies listeners with quality information from National Public Radio and Public Radio International and our own locally produced programs. Because of this relationship, our listeners view underwriters as having a common interest, socially responsible, to have a higher scale product and more credible and honest than a similar business.

Underwriting rates on Northern Community Radio are flexible and catered to suit the needs of any business or organization. For more information on how Northern Community Radio can help your business reach an audience you are not reaching at this time, please contact John Bauer, Development Director, (218) 326-1234 or jbauer@kaxe.org.
