Day Sponsorships

WCBE Day Sponsorships are designed as an introduction to underwriting - public radio's version of advertising. 

Underwriting allows a business to support the mission of WCBE while reaching a highly desirable audience with a message about the company. Listeners who donate $300+ receive seven on-air announcements intermittently during our programming schedule. Any questions regarding WCBE's Day Sponsorship Program should be directed to our Membership Dept at 614-365-5555 or emailed
