“We are working on our plans for this summer. A big part is our radio advertising plan on 97.7 Star. If you own a local business or know someone who does, you can’t do better than working with Natalie, Mark and their team… including Bill DaButler! We love recording our ads, and they make it very easy and fun! And the weather sponsorship, well, they do an amazing job keeping it current with what we have going on in the shop every day. Advertising with them is very cost effective and they bring new and current customers into the shop every day! Thanks Star!”

I approached Star 97.7 about a pretty fantastic fundraising opportunity we had been given because they always been great about helping us with these sorts of things. Between their coverage and the fact that we linked the post on their website on our Facebook page, we had a lot more people give to the Jesup’s matching challenge fundraiser, and we exceeded our goal!!

Melinda Rice-Schoon, Director of Development & Communications, Jesup Memorial Library

“We advertised our Tent Sale on Star 97.7 at the end of the season. A customer from the town of Edinburgh, which is north of Old Town, came in expressly because he heard our ad and he did buy a new stove! We are extremely satisfied with the results from our Star 97.7 ads!”

Paul Carey, North Winds Stove & Fireplace Shop , Ellsworth.

“Our ads have been most effective. I’ve recommended Star 97.7 to other business owners, who have since signed on for advertising of their own. I couldn’t recommend Star 97.7 more highly!”

Denise Morgan, Owner, Oli’s Trolley, Bar Harbor

“This was basically our first step into radio advertising. We were very pleased with Star 97.7’s professionalism and care to a novice customer. The results have been great – our customers come in and tell us so!”
