Love where you live? We do, too.

Since 1985, Radio Blue Mountains has provided a distinctive voice for the diverse communities that call the Blue Mountains home.

Each week, more than 40 local presenters present a wide range of programs focused on community news and views as well as national and global current affairs. Tune in for specialist programs featuring local identities and lots of news from the arts and creative community. There’s a mountain of music to enjoy with a special focus on introducing fresh talent from our thriving local music scene.

We provide a voice to the organisations making a difference in our communities – from Health, Youth, and Indigenous Groups to Veterans’ Affairs, Employment, and Disability Services. Radio Blue Mountains is a not-for-profit community broadcaster, powered by volunteers and supported by local businesses and individuals. All around Australia, community radio provides an essential local voice and refreshing alternative to mainstream broadcasters.

Looking for a powerful way to connect with your local audience?
As a station or program sponsor, we can help you do just that.

Sponsorship takes the form of engaging with helping fund the station at one of the following promotional tiers where we help you create a broadcast on-air promotion for your business:

Silver Tier: $100 for 5 x 30 second spots for a week (usually played just during the Breakfast Show)
For Silver Tier all Media/Audio Files and Scripts must be supplied
Gold Tier: $200 for 10 x 30 second spots for a week (Played during all programs)
Platinum Tier: $400 for 20 x 30 second for a week (Played during all programs)
This Tier also has extra benefits such as being able to add a label or show name to a programme or time slot/service such as ‘The Tourism Show’ Or the Blue Mountaims Big Eats Weather ‘. It also carries more Back Up Social Media Marketing than other Tiers.

If for one campaign the cost covers a week. If a 6 or 12 month subscription the cost covers a 
month (4x as many plays, much more economical). This means the cost of each plays goes from $20 a spot to $5 a spot. 

All media for Silver Tier is supplied. For other Tiers On-air promotions are normally 30 seconds around (75 – 80 words) and we’ll come back with maybe 2 or 3 variations. If you just want to give us the details that’s fine too and we’ll write the copy.

We’ll try and get a promo recorded and approved before COB on a Friday and start playing on the Monday so this means a production schedule something like:
Mon-Tues script & approval Wed – Thur VO recorded, Friday production Final Approval.
