WGLT is an NPR member station delivering excellent local, national and international news, information and entertainment.
From Morning Edition to All Things Considered and beyond, NPR offers a non-intrusive, clutter-free environment for on-air and online underwriters. The concise and straightforward underwriting messages instill a sense of quality, credibility, and community connection between our audience and yours.
WGLT reaches more than 65,000 central Illinois listeners weekly via our broadcast from the campus of Illinois State University and listeners through WGLT.org and the NPR One app. WGLT.org averages 220,000 monthly users and 400,000 page views.
Our audience is comprised of business owners, community leaders, decision makers, and influencers who are engaged and intensely loyal. NPR listeners are more than three times as likely than the average adult to be an Influential. Indeed, NPR reaches one of the highest concentrations of key community leaders in all of media. A large body of research suggests that Influentials are significantly more likely than other Americans to drive social trends, influence mass opinion, and create word of mouth for ideas and products.
