The iLocal™ Brand


At Idaho Radio, we believe in the power of connection. Our use of the "i" in our branding is inspired by the innovative spirit of Steve Jobs, who used it to represent the internet's transformative power.  Just as Jobs envisioned individual Macs becoming exponentially more powerful when interconnected in a worldwide web, we see the potential for Idaho's independent local businesses and communities to amplify their impact through technological connection

For us, the "i" stands for Idaho, of course. But more importantly, it represents our commitment to preserving and enhancing the iLife™ - the unique character, values, and way of life that define our state. It's a symbol of unity, bringing together the diverse voices, independent local businesses, and communities that make our state unique and, thus, preserve our cherished iLife™.

Our vision is to connect Idaho's local businesses through a unified technology platform, link Idahoans to these local entrepreneurs with a directory website and mobile app, and make it easy for Idahoans to put their money where their heart is using the iCard™ – an eGift card only redeemable at iLocal™ businesses. These initiatives are all designed to strengthen the fabric and uniqueness of our communities and thus preserve the iLife™ we cherish.

Interestingly, as we developed our brand, we discovered a deeper resonance with Jobs' vision.  Beyond "internet," he explained that the "i" also stood for "individual, instruct, inform, and inspire."  These concepts align well with our own mission, reflecting a shared understanding of technology's potential to empower and unite.

The "i" in our branding represents our core values: innovation, independence, and the idea that individuals can make a difference.  From iRadio™ to iVote™, iMusic™iDonate™, iCreate™ and beyond, our "i" branding is more than just a prefix.  It's a promise to our community - a commitment to leveraging technology to connect, empower, and elevate Idaho's unique voice.

By embracing the "i", we're not just building a brand.  We hope to create a movement that celebrates the spirit of Idaho and the power of connection.  It's our way of saying that together, we can become something greater than the sum of our parts, preserving the best of our past while focusing firmly on Idaho's future. This is how we protect and nurture the iLife™ - by empowering Idahoans to shape and maintain the unique character of our communities.

Our Vision

If You Want to Make a Change, Make a Difference.   If You Want to Make a Difference, Make it Matter.

Idaho Radio aspires to be an arena for actionable change, designed for those who understand that meaningful shifts don't come merely from conversation or financial contributions.  Our ambition is not just to echo in your ears but also to reverberate through your actions.  Meaningful, lasting differences don't sprout from one-off gestures.  Instead, they demand a continuous commitment—whether grand or humble, every effort counts.  We see this as a journey to a final destination and a perpetual process—making every moment, action, and broadcast matter.

Our mission goes beyond offering alternative viewpoints.  We aim to propel you into alternative actions. Idaho Radio is not for passive listeners but active participants—those willing to defy their comfort zones for something greater.  We’re extending an invitation not just to listen but to engage and make a difference.  The goal is to challenge the status quo, not by pushing against it but by pulling towards something more significant.  Making it matter means transcending talk and converting convictions into tangible change.  Joining us is about realizing the potential of small yet meaningful actions that collectively bring about change. It's about embedding lasting improvements into our community's fabric.

Making it matter starts with action – the “read more” button below.  Our extended articles are not merely pages of text; they're calls to action, intricate parts of a broader strategy to foster substantial, enduring change.  This content is worthy of your time and engagement - we've tried to make it matter.  We offer depth and substance in a world often content with the superficial.  We're looking forward to sharing our vision and co-creating a future where every action counts and every effort matters—large or small.
