  • 3 spots/week (156 total) = $1,200 ($7.70/spot)
  • 10 spots/week (520 total) = $3,200 ($6.15/spot)

Other schedules and frequencies can be negotiated. Payment may be made on a quarterly basis.

"I advertise on WNMC because it reaches the market that we serve — young, old, rich, poor. I am always amazed at how many people tell me they have heard our ad.  It's worth the money well-spent!"
