WHY BECOME A SPONSOR?
WBHM’s award-winning news and entertainment programming provides an understanding of our diverse, complex, and ever-changing world through local reporting and programming from NPR.
Our business model is unique. As an NPR member station and a non-profit entity, the vast majority of our funding comes not from advertising, but from corporate/business sponsors and listener contributions – it comes from our community.
OUR LISTENERS APPRECIATE OUR SPONSORS!
THAT’S CALLED THE HALO EFFECT
Because WBHM is a mission-driven, membership organization that the public sees as contributing to
the local community, the sponsor is seen as supporting this community service as well — ultimately
increasing awareness of your company and distinguishing you from competitors.
