Recent History New Hampshire’s Greatest Hits

In 2015, we added a Premium Digital Billboard on I-95 in Portsmouth. It has proven popular and effective for some of the region’s top advertisers like: New Hampshire Lottery and Portsmouth Regional Hospital. These are just a few of the many local businesses we have worked with to help get their message seen.

2019 saw the next evolution of the Binnie Media brand, as we consolidated four of our NH Radio Stations into our flagship brand: Frank-FM – Greatest Hits. With coverage from Nashua to the Lakes Region and New London to the Seacoast, advertisers can hear their message across a statewide network, regionally, or locally.
