On-Air Advertisements

CiTR/Discorder offers competitive pricing for in-house produced ads.
Prices start at $25 for 30 second spots (minimum purchase of ten). Special rates are available for non-profits and local organizations.

Program Sponsorship

For $125/month (or $110/month for a year) you can become the sponsor of any show on CiTR. The host will mention your business or event twice during the show. This option is a way to connect with a show’s listeners on a consistent, meaningful level and allows you to update your information every week.

Public Service Announcements

CiTR will produce and broadcast free advertisements to promote not-for-profits, campus clubs and student groups. Send a press release or short script to 2-3 weeks prior to your event. We are only able to produce a certain number per week, and airplay will depend on programmer interest. If you want guaranteed airplay, you can purchase paid advertising.

Sponsorship is the best way to promote your event, especially when you combine with advertisement! We offer free sponsorship to events that meet CiTR’s mandate, which are:

  • Create alternative and locally-based programming
  • Empower UBC students and community members through training and participation in the media
  • Provide community access to media and space for under-represented voices

A typical sponsorship consists of social media promotion, radio promotion through in house produced PSAs, as well as discounted advertising in Discorder magazine.

We also offer free PSAs to clubs on the UBC campus. Please fill out our google form, and our Sponsorship Coordinator will contact you as soon as possible. If you have questions or comments about event sponsorship, or something unrelated to an event, don’t hesitate to contact us at
