Boom 97.3 is one of the BEST radio stations in the Toronto GTA. They have an amazing sales team and are knowledgeable leaders in the industry. Our clients definitely benefit from advertising on this station and is a must buy when reaching Adults 35-64 demographic.

Say Yeah!

It was something we wanted to try for a month. But, since the return was so great, we decided to do a second month and a third; then proceed into a sponsorship. Patients have called specifically mentioning they have heard us on 93.5. Your listeners trust you, they listen on a daily basis, so you have a credibility with them. As an advertising, we’re able to build a relationship with your audience. And your team has been great in helping us put together a campaign that speaks directly to your listeners.

Natalie is the best! I’d always look forward to jumping on a call and strategizing partnerships with Natalie. She really knows how to connect with her clients and is always on the ball ensuring deadlines are met. It was a pleasure working with her and I hope to do so again in the near future.

It was nice that it was holistic. To have the web presence just made our campaign more robust and more exciting.
