Our Advertising Philosophy

At Valley Heritage Radio, we believe in smart marketing. Starting with the idea that all businesses need to advertise, we think that all forms of media can potentially be included in your marketing plan. That said, we strongly feel that Valley Heritage Radio should have a place in the marketing strategy of all businesses in the Ottawa Valley – our audience has become too large to ignore!

We will work with you to give you the most exposure for the smallest investment. At Valley Heritage Radio, we’ll never ask you to spend your entire ad budget with us. However, we will guarantee that the portion you DO spend on CJHR will give you the most value and greatest exposure for your money.

We work hard on developing long-term relationships and delivering positive results for our customers. Money spent on advertising for your business is an investment – invest smart, by including CJHR in your plan!

Our Rates and Packages

Valley Heritage Radio has a variety of rates and packages available – from daily news, weather, and program sponsorships, to weekly, monthly and annual advertising packages. We have special rates for Valley Heritage Radio members and offer prepayment bonuses as well.

Unlike other stations, we can accommodate YOUR needs, so if you have a marketing idea that you’d like to use, let me know, and we can work together to make it happen!

As a non-profit organization ourselves, we know what it’s like to be on a budget. With that in mind, we offer special rates and memberships to non-profit groups and organizations, to assist them in getting their message to the public. We always offer specials and incentives to make advertising on CJHR easier for new and established customers as well.

I would be pleased to meet with you, with no obligation, to give you all the information you need to make an easy and informed marketing decision. Please email me at if you wish to see specific rates ahead of time.

Advantages of Advertising on 98.7 CJHR

CJHR is simply the best advertising value in radio in the Ottawa Valley. Our reach is from Deep River and Barry’s Bay in the west, to the City of Ottawa in the east, and includes Lanark and Pontiac (QC) counties. For one low price, you can reach the entire Valley!

As a community radio station, our rates are lower than the other stations in this market. We are flexible and can design a campaign the way you want it. If you are interested in reaching a rural, farming or seniors audience, VHR is for you. No other station in this market captures the variety of listeners that we do.

We are LOCAL and not-for profit – local is ‘in style’ again! And, our announce staff are all live and local, too – no canned announcers here! If you want to make an advertising investment that will stay in the community we live in, join us on CJHR.
