Sponsor Messages

Sponsorship is a way to raise money for our not-for-profit Community Radio Station. By leveraging our airtime, we provide an effective outlet for businesses to get their message across through Sponsor Messages. Our community radio licence requires us to indicate these messages, which is why we add the the phrase ‘Station Sponsor’ or ‘3mFM Sponsor’.

To assist you, below are written text versions of some Sponsor Message audio currently being broadcast by 3mFM.

Can’t find what you are looking for? We also provide text versions of our Community Service Announcements.
