An open letter to all FUN 92-7 FM Radio Clients 

  • Michael StJohn

We are in difficult times and pray that our leaders and our Lord provide us with the wisdom and strength to endure.

If you recall the days following the Tornado Outbreak of 4-27-11 and the aftermath of the 9-11 attacks, our country came together and roared back with a strong will to rebuild and re-establish our resolve as the best nation on the planet!

While many are forecasting that consumers may pause in their normal consumption of goods and services, we at FUN 92-7 FM are proactive in helping our sponsors and clients alter their marketing plans accordingly.

With over a century of experience in advertising and positioning, we assure you that we are working and thinking strategically in how you can best capitalize your current marketing during this temporary shift.

The FUN Media Group Incorporated is here to help you revise your commercial message if so desired.

For example, if you are a service business like a Heating/Cooling business, you may want to promote how your duct cleaning or unit servicing can help ward off virus and infection.

A full-service restaurant should emphasis your hours of operation; your standards of a clean, healthy atmosphere or discounts during certain times of the day for the elderly or children or veterans or medical/first responders.

Remember, people want and need your products at this time more than ever. Don’t let a competitor grab your customers with a better message. Radio listenership EXPLODES during times of crisis! More people have more time to listen and as in the past, FUN 92-7 FM is at the forefront of accurate, timely and immediate information like no other media – print, visual or social.

We are here to help you right now - whenever and whatever your needs may be. We are confident that the world will return to normal soon, but in the meantime FUN 92-7 is your “go to” both on-air and behind the scenes to help.

Sincerely,
Michael & Melanie St John
Owners
