Put Your Business on Our Pages

Note:  Advertising and Underwriting are not the same thing.  Should you choose to underwrite, your logo and contact information (including a link to your web site or social media) only will be included with a message stating that you support the non-profit.  If you have an underwriting announcement that runs on KCHU and choose a package, an audio link with the announcement will also be included.  You may also underwrite audio content, such as news stories,  shared through Sound and Valley News with an audio spot that will be included with the story.

Thank you for your interest in advertising with Sound and Valley News (SVN)  This page is a work in progress as the changeover from Valdez City News progresses, some of this information may change.  If you have questions, please contact us using the information below.
