Day Sponsorship

Because of your generous support, we would like to offer you an optional personal on-air message once your pledge has been fulfilled.

Your personal announcement is a 15-second (maximum) message read by the WVIK staff, and consists of recognition of the member, a birthday announcement, an anniversary or memorial tribute. A member of the WVIK staff will work with you to create your message to ensure the station adheres to federal guidelines for public radio.
Please allow two weeks prior to airing, so we have time to develop and approve your Day Sponsorship announcement. WVIK is the final editor of the copy.

Upon receipt of your Day Sponsorship information we will schedule your message and send you a copy of the message for your approval.

We’ll craft your message according to the information you provide. Here are a few examples of how your message will be formatted.

Birthday:
EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by WVIK member Mark Jones, in recognition of Jane Smith’s forty-fourth birthday.”

Marriage/Anniversary:
EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by WVIK member Mark Jones, in recognition of Jane and John Smith’s forty-fourth wedding anniversary.”

Memorial:
EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by WVIK member Mark Jones, in memory of his mother, Susan.”

Milestone:
EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by WVIK member Mark Jones, congratulating Jane Smith on her college graduation.”

EXAMPLE: “Today’s programming is sponsored by WVIK member Mark Jones, congratulating Jane and John Smith on the birth of their daughter, Sally.”

To submit your Day Sponsorship message and dates complete the form below. We will schedule the message on the date you provide and email you a copy for your approval.
