Day sponsorships are a great way to share your special day and support WETS.

For a contribution of only $150 to WETS, you can be a day sponsor. When you are a Day Sponsor we will air four messages for you throughout your selected day.

These messages can be used to honor a friend or colleague, celebrate a birthday or anniversary, or announce a student’s graduation or other special date-related event.

Day sponsorships are tax deductible and reach listeners in SW Virginia, NE Tennessee, and eastern NC including Lenoir/Hickory.

Each day sponsorship is limited to one friend or occasion. WETS will air at least four messages that are less than 30 words, and are approved by WETS management.  

Messages will maintain the spirit of the noncommercial nature of public radio, and must adhere to Federal, State, and licensee regulations. Messages cannot be used as a means to further a political, religious, or social cause, to sell goods or services, or to endorse candidates for public office.

WETS has three day sponsorships available each day so a reservation is recommended. Please reserve your day sponsorship two weeks prior to your special day.

Contact Laureatte Loy at 423-439-4407 or wetsuw@etsu.edu to get your day sponsorship scheduled today.
