Converting Obstacles to Opportunities: Why Michigan Radio?

You already understand that radio is still relevant, but what makes public radio in general and Michigan Radio in particular a better place to air your message than commercial radio?

Here are the top reasons to air your message with Michigan Radio vs. a commercial station:

  • Your message reaches more of Michigan without losing the localized feel of radio

  • Your message stands out on our uncluttered air, since we only air 1-2 minutes of sponsor messages an hour (versus 15-20 minutes of ads on commercial radio)

  • Your message reaches an engaged, affluent and educated audience

  • Our audience is 74% more likely to do business with a public radio sponsor, due to the Halo Effect

  • We’re community minded – we care about what our listeners care about and what YOU care about

Industry Spotlight: Educational Events

Michigan Radio believes in the power of education and so do our listeners. Because our audience is actively engaged in the community, they have an interest in educational programming.

For example, our listeners are 178% more likely to attend a public rally or speech and 78% of listeners have an interest in the welfare of society.

With 86% of our listeners valuing their education, your message will reach a broad, intellectual base of listeners that are uniquely capable of supporting events that they are passionate about.

Industry Spotlight: Insurance Providers

In the rapidly changing industry, it is essential to build relationships with decision makers at businesses that are seeking insurance solutions that you can provide.

In fact, our listeners are 98% more likely than the  average American to be the purchaser of insurance at their place of work, and with 53% of listeners  obtaining their medical insurance from their places of work, reaching out directly to individuals looking to purchase policies in the healthcare marketplace is essential to diversifying your client base.

In Addition, The Affordable Care Act has increased the number of people with insurance, but many of the newly insured have Medicaid or Medicaid HMO plans, which have a lower profit and higher rate of claim. NPR  listeners are 67% more likely than the average American to have a traditional fee-for-service health plan and half as likely to have Medicaid, meaning that you can sell your high quality insurance services to those who are looking for just that.

Michigan Radio can reach the audience that is looking for YOU to meet their insurance needs.

Insights, Not Sound Bites: Building Relationships with Public Radio

The Principles of Public MediaPublic broadcasting includes media outlets that operate as a public service.  Unlike commercial broadcasting, public media is non-profit and operates from donations from private citizens and businesses.*

In previous posts on the principles of public media, we talked about what supporting a strong civil society means to us and how we do it with integrity.

This time we’re going to talk about how important building relationships are to our mission.

We rely on our community to provide us with their perspective, knowledge and experiences and to be a part of the conversations that we are having on a regular basis.  In return, we work hard to be respectful, honest and effective in the services that we provide.

We also rely on our community to support us financially, both personally and with corporate sponsorship.  We understand that businesses need their dollars to work for them, so we make sure that we help you find the best message schedule for your branding or event campaign.

Our account executives aren’t just here to sell air time – we are here because we care about the mission of Michigan Radio. More than that, we care about your business – we want to see you thrive and celebrate your success along side of you!

Industry Spotlight: Healthcare Providers

Due to Medicare’s quality incentive program, treatment outcomes directly impact your bottom line. Having a well-educated, affluent patient base increases compliance, which improves patient outcome.

The Affordable Care Act has increased the number of people with insurance, but many of the newly insured have Medicaid. While this increases reimbursement, the reimbursements are lower than those received from commercial policies. Michigan Radio is uniquely positioned to reach ideal potential patients with your message.
