Business Sponsorships

Become a founding sponsor of community radio on 100.1 FM!

As a community radio station, our focus is local. We cover local news, provide a platform for local performers to showcase their talents, highlight cultural and artistic events, and also promote our region’s businesses at highly competitive rates.

Broadcast via the web, our reach extends well beyond the Bay of Islands region. In late 2017 or early 2018, we plan to begin broadcasting on 100.1 FM, further growing our audience. In 2016, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission granted Bay of Islands Radio a license to establish a new community radio station in Corner Brook, NL. The total cost of this equipment is approximately $15,000, which the station is required to fundraise.

Bay of Islands Radio is operated entirely by volunteers. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the support of the
community. As we transition to FM broadcasting and prepare to add new programming that reflects our community, the impact of your support cannot be under-estimated, and we are pleased to offer new ways of recognizing your contribution to Bay of Islands Radio.

The following sponsorship levels have been developed to maximize the recognition of you, our sponsors (packages begin immediately and end one year following the launch of our FM signal):
