What is Underwriting?

Underwriting is what we in community radio call advertising. When your business underwrites with WFNU, we create a 30 second radio ad to play daily during drive time that promotes your business, event or organization.

There are over 200,000 residents who live in WFNU's broadcast range.

There are over 50,000 people who commute to in our broadcast area.

 That's over 250,000 people your ad could reach!



Frogtown Community Radio is a low-power FM radio station broadcast in a five mile radius of University and Dale streets in St. Paul, MN at 94.1FM. We are hyper-local and able to engage our listener base in ways larger stations can not. We believe community radio provides a space for our community’s voice, languages, ideas, businesses, organizations and stories to be heard.
