PG Chamber Radio Show: Exclusively For PG Chamber Members


Our monthly radio show on Seaview 104.9FM during the Bob Alexander Radio Show is the first Wednesday and Thursday of each month. The process is simple. Bob will call you, set up a recording time and it’ll be done over the phone and inserted into the programming of this very popular show. You get the option to record two slots or record one to air twice during the show. Bob will let you know during which hour it will air. The cost is $110 (payable to the PG Chamber, not iHeart). To register for the show, email John Wright. The rest we’ll take care of for you. Only 10 businesses per month, so don’t delay. A great way to promote your business, advertise an event or simply to show your community support.
