Day Sponsorship

Become a WVTF/RADIO IQ "Day Sponsor": Choose any day of the year to celebrate or honor a friend, a birthday, or just about any special occasion.

Your "Day Sponsorship" may be up to 20 words in length not counting the first-mentioned Day Sponsor's name. Your message will be on the air five (5) times throughout the day of your choice to reach a broader variety of available audiences. Here are some guidelines we follow:

Day Sponsorships must maintain the spirit of the non-commercial nature of public radio.

  • They cannot be used as a means to further a political or social cause, nor can they be used to endorse a candidate for public office. They may not be used as a platform for a dialog with other groups, individuals, or organizations.
  • Names of persons running for political office many not be announced 30 days prior to the election.
  • Day Sponsorships are not designed to be forums, advocacy platforms, or statements of beliefs for issues, concerns, lifestyles, political positions, religions, etc... We reserve the right, on a case-by-case basis, to refuse any announcements determined to have an adverse or deleterious effect on WVTF/RADIO IQ, our listeners, or financial support.
  • Day Sponsor messages for businesses must meet all guidelines for corporate underwriting as defined by the FCC and by us.

We at WVTF/RADIO IQ reserve the right to decline announcements determined by us to not be in the best interests of our public radio mission, our communities, and on air/online listeners.
