Partnering with WVHM as an underwriting business or organization is a unique, effective way to get your business name out to WVHM’s listeners and give back to the community through your support of this locally owned and operated radio ministry.
WVHM is a non-commercial radio station serving west Kentucky, plus a small part of southern Illinois and northwest Tennessee, by providing southern gospel music and teaching programs. We don’t sell advertising and instead rely on community support. Our listeners and business partners help cover our operating costs.
We will do our best to find the right underwriting option to fit the need of your business, church, or organization. If your business can benefit by increased name recognition and by aligning with a station built on Christian values, we hope you will contact us.
When you join WVHM as an underwriting ministry partner, it shows the community that you value ministries like WVHM and connects you with those who share your values and people that desire to patronize those type of businesses. And, you help sustain WVHM’s non-profit, Christian radio ministry.
With your tax-deductible donation made to WVHM, you will receive donor acknowledgement announcements. It’s our way of saying thank you for supporting the ministry of WVHM.
Frequently Asked Questions
What will I get in my on-air spot?
Your thirty-second underwriting acknowledgment (up to sixty seconds for a non-profit organization) will include the name, location, and contact information for your business. A limited number of products and/or services may also be mentioned. We will do our best to help you choose the right information to include in your acknowledgment and the best way to convey that information within the FCC’s requirements.
What are the suggested donation amounts for underwriting?
Our suggested donations for underwriting are available in a PDF here. The suggested donation amounts and run-times are exactly that – suggestions. Sometimes we can modify the suggestions to better fit your needs. This can be especially true if the spots will be promoting a one-time event. Contact us with the details of your event to see how we can best help you.
What about underwriting on more than one station?
In addition to WVHM, Heartland Ministries, Inc. also owns and operations 89.7, Elevate FM and 88.1, Thrive FM. Contact us to see how we can help you make the best underwriting decision in the Heartland Ministries Radio family.
