Become a Business Sponsor

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.

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

1. Audience

Influential. Intelligent. Decision Makers.

Over 25,000 weekly listeners trust WKMS as their source for news and music. They're well-educated, affluent, and business-savvy. More likely 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.
