Sponsorship is the easiest and most cost-effective way of getting exposure with Free FM. It means you get to build a special relationship with a particular show on our station, with ads played adjacent to the sponsored show, prominent mentions from the broadcaster, and many more opportunities to promote your brand. Sponsorship begins at only $25 for a half-hour show - download the Free FM Rate Card for more details.

As Free FM is a registered charity, the cost of sponsoring a show is a tax deduction for businesses. It's cost-effective - see our Free FM price comparison page to find out more.

By sponsoring Free FM you’re helping support a vital community resource. Our content creators wouldn't have a place to make media for their communities without our sponsors, and we thank you for it.

How it works

When you sponsor a show with Free FM, you recieve:

  • Ads played adjacent to the sponsored show. Ads are professionally produced in-house by Free FM to specification, free of charge.
  • A number of adlibs, which are prominent mentions of your organisation as the sponsor during the sponsored show - "this show is brought to you by..."  "Thanks to our sponsor...", etc.
  • Your logo and a blurb explaining your business on the show page of our website. This logo can link back to your website, if applicable.
