Thank you for your interest in becoming a sponsor of Triple U FM.
Triple U FM is the only fully licensed community broadcaster encompassing the whole of the Shoalhaven. Geographically we are licensed to cover approximately 4400sq/Km which makes up the Shoalhaven, stretching from Gerroa/Gerringong in the North to Termeil in the South and West beyond the coastal escarpment including Kangaroo Valley and areas East of Robertson. Triple U-FM has three separate transmitters to enable us to cover such a large geographical area.
Over the past 30 years we’ve been broadcasting to a rapidly growing and culturally diverse and selective audience who share listening time with the ABC Radio National, ABC Classic-FM and the Triple J set.
Surveys - Previous commercial radio surveys were not structured to deliver any meaningful data about community audiences. Consequently in 2010 the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA), using Commonwealth funding, commissioned McNair Anderson Ingenuity Research to perform a survey for the community area of broadcasting. This was carried out to industry codes of practice and based on standardised questions to determine audience statistics for both capital city and regional community stations. The results were impressive:
Sponsorships on community radio has proven to be a commercially viable medium for small business/trades and for new businesses to establish name and product recognition. The above survey saw the Community Radio sector increase its listener base by 10%.
Advertisers using community radio for their medium are often looking for the warm and fuzzy spin that comes with being a supporter of a community organization. However, the large and ever growing community radio audience should not to be overlooked by advertisers for direct promotion of their products and services. Because we don’t have the overheads of a commercial radio station, sponsoring Triple U FM is simple and cost effective, and we can deliver fantastic value.
We have a fully equipped audio production facility to produce and edit your jingle free of charge. If you are already using commercial radio for your advertising campaign, we can edit your existing advertisement/jingle with the inclusion of a two second sponsor tag. All of our sponsorship messages are scheduled throughout the day, and as a bonus, during our overnight programs.
As a bonus, sponsors of Triple U FM may also have their business Logo posted to this website.
