Business Sponsorship

Look closely at the listener profile of the WUIS audience and you will find the vast majority of our listeners are successful, well-educated individuals. These individuals are the decision-makers and doers. And 80% of public radio listeners say their opinion of a company is more positive when they discover a company supports public radio.

"Our WUIS presence is the most effective radio our agency has undertaken. I've had clients and potential clients come into the office, thanking me for being a WUIS sponsor."

State Farm Agent, Daton Kaisner

Regular sponsorship of WUIS can help produce favorable long-term public relations goals and create increased response rates from your key target markets. You can reach management-level listeners who are among the hardest to reach on commercial radio and television.

WUIS offers opportunities that can help your budget work its hardest to generate awareness and a favorable image for your institution.

WUIS appreciates the support of these business sponsors. When you have the opportunity, please thank them for supporting the journalism and programs you listen to on WUIS!
