KVOL 1330 AM is offering free advertising to Acadiana businesses affected by the Gulf deepwater drilling moratorium. The spots will air for a month, according to drive-time host Lou Rom, who conceived the promotion.

“Despite diversification over the years, Lafayette is still an oil and gas town,” Rom says. “Think about it, we have the Petroleum Club, the Oil Center, and the list goes on and on. So, Lafayette, as much as any city in the Gulf region, is going to bear the brunt of this moratorium.”

Interested companies must schedule a studio session with KVOL, located at 3225 Ambassador Caffery Parkway. Call 993-5500 to find out more.

Adds Rom: “In great part, the national media has focused on Big Oil and not the small businessman. KVOL is a small player in an industry dominated by huge conglomerates, so we relate to the small businesses hurt by this moratorium. This is just our way of saying, ‘We understand, and if we can help in any way, we are here to help.’”
