WMRT-FM’s programming is also supported, to some extent, by underwriting from area businesses and offers Corporate Underwriting Package opportunities. Your support will enable the station to continue to offer quality fine arts programming as well as inform listeners of your company’s services and products.

In recognition of a grant of $500, WMRT-FM will offer each underwriter the following schedule of announcements for a 13 week period:

  • On the weekend – Four announcements per day, at logical breaks during and between programs. They will indicate the name of the underwriter, the phone number or similar contact information, a one sentence non-comparative description of the underwriter’s service or product, and a line associating them with a particular program.
  • On a weekday – Two announcements per day during the weekday broadcasts of classical music (midnight-12 p.m. and 6 p.m. to midnight) promoting the weekend schedule. These announcements will be distributed at random and will be similar to the above, but less detailed.
