Broadcasting direct from Mangawhai Heads!

Proudly New Zealand owned!

Advertising with Heads FM is great value

Heads FM is your own local radio station covering Mangawhai and the Bream Bay region, and streaming live to the world online. We broadcast not from Orewa, not from Whangarei, not from Auckland, but from Mangawhai Heads!!  And we are 100% New Zealand owned.

Essentially we offer two low cost advertising options:
  • Sign up for one month, and you get 3 airplays of your commercial per day for only $200 (plus GST)
  • Sign up for six months, and you get the same amount of spot plays for ONLY $600 (plus GST). That means your monthly rate is a mere $100!!

But wait, there’s more…! This one cost also means you get FREE advertising on our sister station, The Wireless 90.4FM for the same period.

(Because “two heads are better than one!”).

Creating your advertisement is an easy process.

  • We use an award winning team of writers and voice talent to produce a professional message for your business
  • You send us the “bullet points”, or your own copy details, and we’ll write up the commercial for approval, before recording
  • Because we are only a small team, you’ll deal directly with us, so there’ll be no confusion or delays….you’ll be on air as fast as possible

Heads FM offers a fantastic opportunity to reach the many local residents in what is now the fastest growing region of lower Northland, plus an expected audience of nearly 20,000 over the summer months in the popular holiday destinations of Mangawhai Heads, Langs Beach, Waipu Cove, Uretiti and Ruakaka.

Heads FM welcomes all inquiries regarding advertising and sponsorship opportunities and invites prospective clients to call or email Mark directly. Enjoy Heads FM, the regions’ real local radio station since 2004, on air on 106.4FM and online.

what our advertisers say…

“Westmoreland Homes has been advertising with Mark and Heads FM for as long as we’ve been building in Mangawhai and surrounding areas. Even though there are larger national radio stations that cover our area, Mark’s stations are in my opinion the most listened to in this region.

On almost every building site our builders have the radio tuned to Heads FM.

When it comes to value for money and bang for your buck, Mark and Heads FM are way ahead.”

Willie Hewitt, Director of Westmoreland Homes

“For us, advertising on the radio has been the most cost effective way of reaching the local community. 

It’s great hearing how a customer heard our ad on the local radio and it reminded them they needed to come and see us.

We tried the free papers, with limited success but now stick with Heads FM and the Wireless almost exclusively. Great value for money!”

Mike Stevens, Mangawhai Optometrists

“Heads FM has been instrumental in establishing our brand (Rush Coffee) in the Mangawhai/Bream Bay area. From the outset Mark has been there for us, initially writing, voicing and producing multiple ads. Heads FM has given small local businesses access to one of the top talents in the country – a resource that we could never have afforded elsewhere.

In advertising with Heads FM you will have the best and most cost effective reach in to the Mangawhai/Bream Bay area while helping support one of the greatest assets our community has.

You’ll be getting top class professional services at a ridiculously affordable price and of course you are aligning your brand with the best playlist on the planet!

Thank you to Mark and Maureen for your support of our community, local groups and local businesses. We are extremely privileged to have such renowned industry professionals and such an amazing resource in our community.”

Hayden Prujean, Rush Coffee

“We know what it’s like being the little guy in a world dominated by big mass marketing corporates.

The radio business is not too dissimilar to the brewing business…..big brands, big noise, big money….

Our small, craft beer brewery has carved a niche in the area providing award winning brews and gaining a great reputation, and we support our local stations Heads FM and The Wireless FM as they have also done the same in their field. Gaining audience, kudos and giving great value for money. Plus we know what we spend with them, they spend with us!! That’s the benefit of being local”

Geoff Gwynne, McLeods Brewery
