What are the commercials posted here?
Alliance member stations around the country submitted hundreds of 30-second radio commercials promoting their HD2 stations to the Alliance. These ads were then judged and voted on based on their ability to excite listeners about the HD2 content, along with their effectiveness in prompting a call to action to buy an HD Radio receiver. In December 2008, ten winners were selected and given $1,000 each, which was shared among the writers and producers of the creatives.
