Why Should Your Business or Organization Underwrite on DUQ?
No other radio station in the region has a higher percentage of affluent listeners or listeners who describe themselves as professionals and executives. DUQ listeners are better educated, more affluent and more influential in both community and business decision-making. They are web savvy and travel nearly three times as much as the average Pittsburgher. They tend to lead a healthier lifestyle and are very interested in the arts.

Underwriting is a smart and effective use of marketing, promotion or public relations dollars for long-term positioning or top-of-mind awareness and is also an excellent way to support DUQ.
