Why does that matter to your business?
A proven benefit of radio is that listeners connect emotionally to their favorite stations and personalities and that personal connection makes the commercial messages heard on the radio more effective and more trusted than other forms of advertising. When it comes to connecting with our fans, nobody does it better than WQDR!
Radio advertising is one of the best ways for a local small business to advertise. Advertising on local Raleigh radio is like a word-of-mouth recommendation only better, because you control what is said about your business!
