On Air – Why Radio?

Radio is the most widely used medium, making it perfect for getting the word out about your business or organization. Plus, today’s technology allows listeners to use their phones, cars, smart watches, and speakers to tune in. Christian music radio is especially effective because it attracts primarily adults, especially women, who often make or influence most of the family’s buying decisions.

Many of our listeners enjoy WCQR while in the car, often with their children along for the ride. They appreciate the positive, encouraging music that’s safe for young ears in the back seat. The music we play by artists such as MercyMe, Chris Tomlin, Toby Mac, and Lauren Daigle (to name a few!) provides hope and encouragement, even when the world feels like it’s falling apart. This builds audience loyalty, as our listeners are engaged, passionate, and have made WCQR part of their lives.


Since 1997, WCQR has served our community, becoming almost like a member of the family to tens of thousands of listeners every week. We are engaged in the community, working closely with churches, ministries, and non-profits to make our area a better place to live and raise a family.

We care about the community and demonstrate this by serving at dozens of events each year. Organizations trust WCQR to show up and help. They also know announcements on our station will sell tickets and increase attendance at events. Together, we are making a difference!

Reach Our Area and Beyond!

WCQR is part of the Positive Alternative Radio family and can help you reach customers throughout most of the Southeast. In addition, our digital platforms reach listeners across the United States and even the world. Whether you are trying to connect with consumers locally, regionally, or nationally, we can help by creating effective, innovative, results-oriented campaigns tailored to fit your marketing plan and budget.

WCQR is not just radio – we also have website with thousands of unique visitors each month and hundreds of people downloading our WCQR app to listen anywhere. You can reach our preferred, engaged audience with custom-designed display ads provided by our Creative Services Team or with your own (as long as they meet the size and file specifications we provide). Your digital ads on WCQR can be linked directly to your website. Our team can build a custom landing page for larger campaigns and help with branding and design. A limited number of “pre-roll” videos will put your message right before listeners enjoying the WCQR App.  We also are active on Facebook and Instagram with nearly 50,000 followers!  We can partner with you on mentions, video stories and live broadcasts on Social Media.

Underwriting Beats Advertising

WCQR is a non-commercial broadcaster, which means we cannot legally air advertising announcements from for-profit entities. Instead, we offer underwriting announcements that make your message part of the grassroots support that keeps WCQR on the air.

In copy custom-crafted to fit your marketing plan, we will thank your organization for supporting us and provide pertinent details about your product or service, including your location(s) and how our listeners can find you. This elevates you from someone who is “just trying to sell me something” to an active partner with our station. WCQR listeners are very loyal and tell us all the time that they look forward to visiting businesses and organizations that support the station they love.
