  • Radio ads- it depends on the radio station- typically a :60 spot averages $225/spot  - (one week run on one station typically costs $3,000)
  • Print ads -2c x 7 inch ad in the local papers average- $650.00 per ad per run.

**** since radio spots and print ad runs are expensive The Ridgefield Playhouse would be willing to split the ad costs in 1/3 - we would use 2/3 of the :60 radio spot as well as 2/3 of the print ad size
Typically a radio ad run costs us around $3,0000 per station for a one week run- so it would cost renter $1,000 for one radio station for a one week run.
