Radio Free

How is radio broadcasting free to the user?

When you turn on the radio, how do you get reception in your car, home, etc for free??? How is that possible? How do radio companies make money, and how do they always have prizes to give away???

In the US, we make money by selling advertising - those pesky commercials you always hear. Sometimes the advertising is 'traded" for prizes that can be awarded in contests that help build listening. Sometimes we buy the prizes. Sometimes they are donated in return for the promotional value.

The stations transmit for free using large transmitters and towers that effect their local areas and some also stream their stations on the internet.

The more listeners we have the greater the cost of advertsing on the station, that's why we try to attract listeners.

That's a summary. Much more is available all over the internet. Start with
