WCBU Day Sponsors

The Day Sponsorship benefit gives WCBU contributors the opportunity to dedicate a day of programming in celebration of a personal milestone such as a birthday, anniversary, wedding, retirement, or memorial, or encourage support for a community service organization. The Day Sponsorship benefit is available to listeners who contribute $365 or more a year.

WCBU Day Sponsors receive five on-air announcements through the broadcast schedule on the date of their choice and recognition in the WCBU Annual Report. Announcements should be approximately 30 words in length and will be recorded by WCBU professional staff.

The WCBU staff must approve all Day Sponsorship announcements in advance. WCBU will not accept underwriting or day sponsorships from political action committees (PACs), political messages from candidates for political office or from individuals/groups supporting candidates or PACs.

We ask that you please give us a minimum of two weeks’ notice to schedule and voice your announcement.

Please feel free to email WCBU Individual Giving Director Jennifer Armstrong or call (309) 438-3581 with questions about Day Sponsorships.
