As a community station, Highland FM 107.1 receives limited grants of government funding. Therefore, we have also to rely on funding from the community in the form of business sponsorships, as well as membership subscriptions and donations. Your contributions support the maintenance and broadcasting of Highland FM 107.1 and enhance the level of service we provide.
Because community radio is volunteer based, our operational costs are lower than for commercial stations. This translates to dramatic savings for sponsors looking for a long-term commitment to their businesses, their brands, their customers and the community that buys their goods and services.
We broadcast a maximum of four minutes of sponsors’ announcements each hour, which means no clutter. And there’s no need to worry about how to create your announcement – a professional production agency will write and voice your message.
