The Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport is talking to an unnamed corporate sponsor about putting a logo on its control tower.
Airport director Bern Case said Wednesday they hope to make a 10-year-deal deal to bring about $300,000 a year to the airport from a corporation that would put its logo on all four sides of the 100-foot control tower, visible to passengers taking off and landing, as well as people driving by.
“It’s not really advertising,” he said. “It’s more showing a corporate presence for somebody who would like to be involved with the community.”
