Radio Te Aroha is owned and operated by the Te Aroha Dramatic Society which in turn, owns and operates the Te Aroha Little Theatre in Honi St, Te Aroha. The Society is both an incorporated society and a registered charity and has been established in Te Aroha for over 70 years. First and foremost, the station is run primarily to provide free advertising for community groups, not-for-profits, charities, clubs, schools, churches and their events as well as local employers advertising jobs and job-seekers looking for work. Having a garage sale? We advertise these for free too! All monies raised through on-air commercial advertising supports not only our local theatre but also local community groups and events by enabling them to advertise on the radio for free.
