Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about advertising in the Cloud.
Is the Cloud only online?
No, we’re an actual FM radio station!

The Cloud is heard 24/7 on 96.9 FM Radio in the dark green shaded areas of Boulder, Golden, Applewood, Wheat Ridge, Old Town Arvada and Lakewood.
How much does it cost to advertise in the Cloud?
The Cloud has developed a very simple and affordable way for small business and local non-profits to advertise daily in the Cloud.
Our 2022 base ad program remains a remarkable media value.
This program is only $1250.00 quarterly (billed in advance via Square) for (3) three fully produced daily radio ads by our remarkable stable of voice-over artists and copy-writers from all over the country.
New to the Cloud are single spot ad rates beginning at $35.00 per :30/60 second units for special events, flighted ad schedules and for the use of advertising agencies.
All of the Cloud Radio Programs also includes use of our digital “click-through” assets online and stream.
However, our most popular ad program features ten (10) scheduled ads daily, a monthly Cloud Podcast from your business, a feature online and ad signage on The Cloud Beetle.
This program requires an annual investment of $20,000 and is also billed quarterly via Square.
Why is the Cloud so affordably priced?
Our affordability is a product of the cloud technology we developed to deliver a superior product at a minimal cost and we pass that savings onto our over 100 daily advertisers.
All our resources go into expanding our technology, audience coverage area and the content you hear in every ad and special feature in the Cloud (because of the nature of our business model we are not able to extend any refunds of any kind).
