Showcase Your Business by Standing Out with Clutter-Free Media

WXPN airs only four (4) :25 business support messages per hour. Less on-air clutter means your message gets heard by an engaged consumer. Commercial radio airs up to 22 commercials per hour. WXPN offers a direct one-to-one, sponsor-to-consumer connection in our market-exclusive, clutter-free on-air environment.

“That’s still a fundamental problem for terrestrial radio,” says Larry Miller, director of Music Business program in New York University’s Steinhardt school. “How would you like to be the advertiser in minute six of a seven-minute stop-set?”
