Shine FM is a non-commercial, educational radio station as determined by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Therefore, we do not sell traditional or conventional advertising like commercial stations because we are restricted about what we can say about for-profit businesses. If you are a non-profit organization, we have no restrictions about what we can say about your organization. Shine FM offers for-profit companies a way to promote their businesses to our listeners through underwriting announcements as set forth by FCC rules.

Announcements Can Say:

  • Who You Are
  • What You Do or Sell
  • When You Are Open
  • Where You Are Located
  • Why You Do What You Do
  • How to Contact You

Announcements Need to Avoid:

  • Calls to Action (call today, stop by, buy one)
  • Making qualitative or comparative statements (lowest price, best in town)
  • Mentioning prices
  • Promoting a sales event
