Corporate Support

Becoming a Sponsor/Underwriter on WVPE puts your message before a passionate, engaged audience. Our audience is highly educated, affluent, well-traveled and influential. Listeners maintain active interest in cultural affairs, politics and community events. WVPE ranks #1 among college graduates in our total survey area.

If you want this audience, then sponsoring programming on WVPE makes good business sense. Plus, our listeners pay to support WVPE with their membership financial contributions. So our audience not only appreciates WVPE’s sponsors, they tend to choose public radio sponsors over competitors when it comes to a buying decision.

We can create a schedule for your on-air message that suits any marketing budget. WVPE may also help your organization reach the public broadcasting audience throughout Indiana.
