I have advertised with Asheville Radio Group since 2002 and am very pleased with the results. I found the contesting on ESPN works especially well. The listenersthat come in to redeem their gift certificates typically spend well over the amount they won. It proves to me the income level of the listeners on ESPN is much higher than the average and works well with my business.

As owner of several small businesses I work with radio stations and groups in several markets in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Colorado. The results I get from Asheville Radio Group stations are much faster than in all other markets! Their team is very flexible, imaginative and our partnership is greatly enhanced by ARGs event sponsorship opportunities that have allowed my businesses to attract large numbers of new clientele. Dollars well spent!

I’ve been advertising on the river for the last couple of years. There’s not a week that goes by that I don’t have at least five or six people tell me they heard my ad on the radio. I highly recommend advertising on 98.1 the River.
