Become a KUMD Underwriter
BREAK THROUGH THE CLUTTER
Program underwriting on KUMD offers two principal benefits: very effective marketing for your company and proven increases in sales/exposure. Underwriting mentions create a positive image of your business with our listeners, which greatly influence their purchasing habits. National studies have shown that listeners not only build a more positive image of a company that underwrites on public radio; they are more likely to purchase goods and services from that company. Underwriting also shows listeners that your business is a responsible corporate citizen because you support community services that add to the quality of life for area residents.
KUMD's Day Time (6am-9pm) target audience is 35-54. Our evening (The Basement 9pm-3am) programs target 18-35 demo.
WHO ARE THEY?
Public radio listeners are affluent, well-educated individuals who are involved in their community. They are far more likely to vote and more likely to be members of civic/service clubs and community groups. They are more likely to be environmentally conscious and aware of the importance of shopping locally and supporting the local economy.
