Commercial versus Noncommercial Radio: Barely a week goes by without someone asking about this. First off, the designation is not something Radio Mall assigns - it has to do with the kind of FCC license the station has. Either they have the right to run commercials, or they don't. Though the corporate sponsorship announcements carried on noncommercial stations sound more and more like commercials each year, they don't contain prices, for example. Noncommercial stations include some Religious broadcasters, most College-owned stations, Public Radio, small community broadcasters, and low-power FMs. Though there still are some independently owned commercial radio stations (especially in small towns) many commercial radio stations are owned by large companies such as iHeartMedia, Disney, Cumulus, CBS, etc. Many of our customers have products and services related to commercials, so we keep these lists separate.
