Why should you sponsor a program?
By sponsoring a program on Radio Eye – Kentucky’s only radio reading and information service for visually impaired and print-disabled residents – you can help build name recognition, consumer interest, and loyalty among Kentucky’s blind and disabled citizens. Radio Eye’s audience will associate your business as being supportive of older citizens and people with disabilities.
Radio Eye is a registered 501(c)(3) charity; therefore, unlike paying for a commercial on regular AM/FM radio, sponsorships are tax-deductible as a charitable gift to a nonprofit organization, as allowed by law.
Who will my sponsorship reach?
We estimate over 9,700 people across Kentucky listen to our programming. 61% are female. 77% are 65 or older. 100% are disabled.
What is the cost?
$50 per week for a one-hour program or $25 for a 30 minute program
$180 per month for a one-hour program or $90 for 30 minutes
$2,000 per year for a one-hour program or $1,000 for 30 minutes
What will my on-air announcement say about my business?
The on-air announcement may consist of a basic description or slogan (including location and phone) about 30 seconds in length.
Announcements can include
Your business’s name, or that of the subsidiary or parent company
Location and duration of business
Value-neutral description of a product line or business (prices & price comparisons may not be included)
Trade names, product, or service listings that identify the sponsor
Sponsorship spots are also known as underwriting spots and are governed by specific Federal Communications Commission (FCC) restrictions. These messages cannot advocate a product or contain any call to action.
