The “live-read” revival

The advertising industry has long recognized the benefit of live, DJ read advertising (known in the industry as a “live read”). Live reads promote authenticity and build on the already established relationship between the DJ and listeners.

If you are also a public radio or other noncommercial radio listener you may already be familiar with live-reads as the delivery method for underwriting announcements; eg. “Morning News is underwritten by Ernie’s Espresso, located at 333 5th Ave.” However, on noncommercial radio, these announcements are strictly informational buy law.

At KRKQ, however, we take the “live-read” and build on its personal touch, adding-in powerful commercial elements that cannot be aired on public radio. Our live reads often include prices, quality descriptions, and inducements to buy. This is one of the benefits of our commercial radio live-read advertising.

Live-read ads are always clearly identified as an ad or sponsorship, this keeps the programming clear and transparent as our listeners and sponsors have come to expect.

Here’s a list of some of these sponsorship opportunities at Mountain Chill®/KRKQ. Many of these opportunities get booked a year in advance.  Get in touch with us today (eric@mountainchill.com) to learn about which of these sponsorship opportunities are still available this year.
