Advertise in Taos with KNCE

We have a variety of Taos advertising packages to suit your business or promotional needs, at rock-bottom prices you’ll only find at KNCE. You can click on the names below for more information about any package, but it’s easiest to contact us at sales@truetaosradio.com!

30 or 15 second radio ads. To maximize listener engagement, we work hard to make sure our ads don’t sound like run-of-the-mill radio ads (the kind that make you want to turn the dial). We avoid jingles at all cost, and usually we suggest that the ad just be voice, with a personal touch. Our DJs tend to play instrumental music similar to their show style behind ads with no backing track. This makes for a unique and interesting listening experience every time your ad plays!

We can customize the placement of 30 second ads during the day.

Our 30 second ads start at $6.50/each, and there are quantity discounts!

Have our 85+ DJs promote your event! Our live DJ Reads are just that. You give us the copy, and our DJs read it throughout the day between 8am and 10pm. Our DJs are often so happy that you are supporting our station, that they will talk about your business after the read as well! This option is only available if you are trying to promote a sale or an event, not if you are just promoting your business.

DJ Reads start at $6.00/each, and there are quantity discounts!

Do you have a program you love? Sponsor the show! The DJ of your choice will promote your business throughout their show, with a custom ad 3 times every hour. This is a great opportunity to get involved with KNCE, especially if you have a personal relationship with a DJ and want to show your support! You will be able to pass information about your business on to them weekly if you have news and updates you wish to share.

Contact us for more information about show sponsorships — they are affordable and awesome!
