The other day, I came to the realization that I don’t give enough credit to our ongoing sponsors.  We call them “Underwriters”, and you hear them mentioned on air all the time.  What you may not realize is how important these local businesses are to keeping WWER on the air.  Underwriting accounts for about 2/3 […]

First, a quick thank you to all of our listeners who took the time to designate WWER as your charity of choice and do your Amazon shopping by using smile.amazon.com.  Every little bit helps!

We’ve just received another batch of WWER T-Shirts in Large and Extra Large sizes.   If you would like one of your very own, let us know by sending an email to [email protected] and I’ll set one aside for you.  They are $20 each, cash only please.  

As a non-commercial station, our two main sources of income are our WATTS members and our Underwriters.  Underwriters are businesses who donate money to WWER in exchange for on-air mentions of their business.  A more common term might be sponsor, but we like to differentiate with the term underwriter we are not a commercial station.  […]

Would you like to give a special gift to a friend or family member?  How about a special announcement for a birthday, anniversary, or graduation on WWER?   For $20 donation, we will wish a happy birthday, anniversary, or other special event on air on their special day.  We will make the announcement several times throughout […]
