Become a WPRL Underwriter

An important contribution to quality radio is made by foundations, corporations and individuals who provide funds to underwrite the presentation of a program or series of programs broadcast on WPRL.

Underwriting singles you out
Underwriting on WPRL places you and your product or service in a unique position by clearly separating your name from the clutter inherent in commercial advertising. Just as you, the underwriter, support WPRL, loyal listeners will support you. 88% of NPR listeners say their opinion of a company is more positive when they discover the company supports public radio.

You can reach a specific target audience
WPRL offers you the chance to contribute to one or more of our various funds, allowing you the freedom to select the programing that will most economically reach your segment of the market with the greatest potential. When asked to name companies that support NPR, 51% of listeners recall at least one.

Underwriting identifies your company as socially aware
An association with WPRL, with its long-standing reputation for social responsibility, identifies your company as a civic and community-minded organization with an interest in the public that goes beyond simply selling a product or service.
