Good For Your Community and Your Bottom Line.

Reach a unique and significant audience of listeners throughout our beautiful and extensive coverage region of western Kentucky, southernmost Illinois, and northwestern Tennessee.

"WKMS values its listeners and its underwriters, just like we value our customers and our community. It's a good way to get the word out to those who share those same ideals. And the programming is fantastic." -Jeremy Rose, CFSB

Why It’s the Best Decision You’ll Make Today:

1. Audience

Influential. Intelligent. Decision Makers.

Over 30,000* weekly listeners trust WKMS as their source for news and music. They're well-educated, affluent, and business-savvy. More like to own homes and businesses. And they appreciate our underwriters' straightforward, non-commercial approach.

2. Environment

Don't get lost in a sea of commercials. We don't air any. In fact, we don't air more than two 20-second underwriting announcements per break.

3. Relationship

80% of public radio listeners say that their opinion of a company is more positive when they find out it supports public radio.** Your underwriting investment signifies that you are a civic and community-minded business that cares about quality products.
