Day Sponsors | WGLT

Day Sponsors

Contribute just one dollar a day for a year (or more) and you can celebrate a personal milestone with a day of announcements on WGLT.

Celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or graduations. Honor a life well lived or welcome a new baby into the world. Congratulate a retiree, thank colleagues for a job well done, or commend your favorite organization for community service. We've even had a WGLT Day Sponsor use his announcement to propose to his sweetie. (She said yes.)

Your Day Sponsor message will run on WGLT five times on the day of your choice and we'll send you a link to your Day Sponsorship message so you can share it on social media. If you agree, we'll share your message on WGLT's social media, reaching people who may not catch it on air.

Here is a brief guide to WGLT Day Sponsorships.

(All WGLT Day Sponsorship announcements must be approved in advance by the WGLT staff. Please give us two weeks notice to record and schedule your announcements. For more information, feel free to email contributorservices@wglt.org or call (309) 438-3581.)
