Free Advertising for RSOs

As a student-run radio station WPGU 107.1 relies heavily on the University of Illinois, not only financially but also because all of its staff are students of the university. The station has been serving the university and the community since 1953.

Part of our commitment to the university is to offer free-of-charge advertising and on-air time to Registered Student Organizations (RSOs). For the month of October 2019, WPGU 107.1 will offer this opportunity to 5 RSOs. The selected RSOs will be given 30 free-of-charge 30-second commercials that can be aired at any time until April 15th 2020. They will also have an opportunity to do an interview on the air and receive additional advertising on WPGU’s social media platforms and website (  RSOs willing to participate are asked to submit an application by October 20th at  Winners will be selected by the 17th of October. RSOs raising money for a philanthropic cause, raising awareness for a public issue, or for an event open to the public are highly encouraged to apply. The selection process will be based on the need for advertising time and the quality of the application.
