A short history of KQLH...
Why Radio Works...
1) Radio sells with immediacy.
Research proves that radio regularly reaches consumers within two hours of their largest purchase of the day. Can there be a better time to reach customers than on their car radio while they are driving to do today’s shopping?
2) Radio sells everywhere.
Radio is the only true mobile medium. In the car, at work, and at play, radio is there...the companion and the advertising force your customers take with them wherever they go.
3) Radio sells with intimacy.
In your personal life, when you have something very important to communicate to someone, which would you prefer - to show them a picture, to write to them, or to talk with the intimacy and emotion of the human voice? Radio sells with intimacy.
4) Radio stars in the theater of the mind.
Want a 100-piece symphony orchestra in your ad, an elephant, a chorus, a laughing child, a love song? With word pictures and emotion-evoking sounds, radio’s theatre of the mind stimulates the most emotion-filled pictures the mind can comprehend.
5) Radio escapes advertising’s clutter.
Today’s newspapers average 2/3 ad copy to 1/3 editorial copy. TV spends about 1/3 of its time on advertising. Today’s radio, at about 10 minutes of advertising per hour, devotes less than 1/5 of its time to ads. Radio is the uncluttered medium.
6) Radio is the cost effective medium.
Newspaper rates are up (even though circulation is down). TV ad rates are up (even though viewership is down).Radio advertising costs grew less than any other major form of advertising.
7) Reach is nice, but frequency sells.
Newspaper and TV are reach media - they reach varying numbers of people. Psychologists tell us that consumers need to be exposed to an advertising message at least three times before it begins to penetrate. Most local businesses cannot afford the necessary three-times-plus frequency that effective advertising demands - except on radio. Radio is the reach and frequency medium you can afford.
8) Radio’s targeted advertising sells.
Radio’s variety of formats allows you to pinpoint your advertising on the station or stations that best match your customer’s interests. You cannot pinpoint advertising in the broad-reach, scattershot newspaper and TV media forms. Radio’s unique targeting ability saves you money.
9) You’re always on the front page with radio.
With radio advertising you are front and center in the listener’s attention span when your ad is on the air. You’re never buried on page 42 and you’re never surrounded by your competitor’s ads. With radio, you are always on the front page.
10) Radio is an active medium in an active society.
Radio reaches out! Passive forms of advertising simply list merchandise or tell you where a product is available, and then wait to be found. Radio is an active medium capable of stirring emotion, creating demand, and selling your product or service. Today’s hotly competitive marketplace demands an active medium. Most people listen to radio in their cars a minimum of 7 hours a week in their cars, and radio is their companion. Radio is a companion medium - especially when many people are isolated in their cars in 2-3 hour commutes on our freeways!
Radio listeners are loyal to their radio stations, and often times make their consumer decisions based on where they've heard all about it. When listeners hear a real voice they tend to listen and trust because that is every humans very first way of learning.

What is underwriting?
As a non-commercial station, KQLH 92.5 FM can’t accept advertising. However, organizations can support the station through sponsorships and underwriting. Underwriters’ contributions are tax-deductible and acknowledged on the air and on the KQLH website.

Listing and value-neutral description of up to three products and/or services

What we can't do...
We can't mention a price of a product or service.
We can't tell people to "buy now."
We can't use comparative language - "Suzie's Bakery has lower prices."
We can't give deadlines or terms to purchase or buy - "Sale ends Wednesday."
Why Local Radio?
Local radio is clutter-free. We air only a few underwriting messages an hour and never more than two back-to-back. Our audience knows that music is only 90-seconds away and that they can easily stay tuned during our brief stops.
That means that your message comes through loud and clear, not buried in a group of four to six minute-long commercials, as is often the case in commercial radio.
And because KQLH Thanks you for your support, you’re automatically getting an endorsement from the station that loyal listeners love.
The most affordable way to get your message out in the Inland Empire to a wide variety of customers of all ages.
