MVYRADIO's Business Diversity Initiative
As a Voice for the Vineyard, Cape Cod, Southeastern Massachusetts, Newport, RI, and the World, MVYRADIO has established its mission as a reflection of the many voices, cultures, ideas and perspectives in our broadcast area.

With our Business Diversity Initiative, we intend to increase the awareness of minority-owned businesses in our communities who may be under-represented in local media. We hope to uplift and amplify the voices of women, those who identify as black, indigenous or people of color (BIPOC), immigrants (Brazilian, Jamaican, other), Asian American/Pacific Islander, members of the LGBTQIA community, the disability community, and veterans. We are focusing these efforts on businesses within our broadcast area who are not already active clients with MVYRADIO.

On a quarterly basis, applications will be reviewed by members of the MVYRADIO Diversity Committee and 3 applicants will be selected. Chosen applicants will be granted a bank of underwriting messages to be aired on MVYRADIO, to help increase awareness of their company's brand (within FCC guidelines).

Did you know you can become a certified minority-owned business and listed on the Mass. Supplier Diversity Office web site? It’s free and easy to apply. Visit https://www.mass.gov/orgs/supplier-diversity-office-sdo  to learn more.

We are open to any and all suggestions for this new program as it develops. If you have any feedback or questions, please email Hilary Greene: hilary@mvyradio.org
