- The Most Accurate Forecasts
We understand that weather forecasts are available
from a variety of free sources. However, those other
sources are not forecasting specifically for your
station nor are they being held accountable for their
accuracy. We dont expect anyone to pay for a
forecast if there isnt any value to it. We excel
at providing the most accurate forecasts available
in todays market. In the rare event that our
forecast isnt shaping up the way it should,
we will provide you with an updated forecast as part
of our standard service agreement.
- High Quality Digital Audio
We sound like were in your hometown. Literally!
HFS uses only industry standard audio production equipment
so we can deliver the very best sounding products
to your station. There have been several cases where
radio stations have told us that our audio products
sound even better than their own in-house productions!
- Real-Time Storm Warnings
The weather can change in an instant. When severe
weather threatens your listening area we will provide
you with real-time storm updates. If the situation
warrants we can break into live programming and alert
your listening audience of any potential danger. This
is a valuable service to your listeners and will serve
to improve audience loyalty and time spent listening.
- Increased Ad Revenues
Weather reports should be sold to advertisers as sponsorships.
Sponsorships are an excellent way for an advertiser
to maximize reach and frequency and therefore should
command a premium advertising rate. This incremental
revenue is essential to the health of your bottom
line. It is not unusual for a radio station to
generate as much as a 5 to 1 return on investment
(ROI) from selling a weather sponsorship. In many
cases it's much higher.
- Choice of On-Air Talent
HFS offers both male and female on-air talent. All holidays and weekends included.
