Owensboro Radio Station Celebrates Local Businesses with Free Broadcasts
It's back and we are so excited. Townsquare Media Owensboro/Evansville is bringing back, for the third year in a row, our #WeLoveLocal campaign and we're again offering locally-owned small businesses in our area FREE one-hour remote broadcasts. This is something that we started during the COVID-19 pandemic and we've continued to do since. Here's how it came about.
At the end of 2020, we knew our local business owners were hurting. In March of that year, COVID-19 caused many of our local small businesses to shut down for extended periods of time and business suffered long after that. Waves of COVID-19 infections and new strains of the virus continued to put a squeeze on business and the economy.
Here at WBKR, we wanted to do something to help. So, we decided to put our mouths where the local money is. We rolled out a Christmas shopping season campaign that encouraged our listeners, online community, friends and fans to support and LOVE our local businesses. We offered ten FREE one-hour broadcasts per week, for four weeks, on a first-come, first-served basis. The response was HUGE and amazing and rewarding- not only for the businesses, but for the community and us as well.
We brought #WeLoveLocal back in 2021 and it was equally well-received. Well, guess what? We're bringing it back for the third consecutive year.
Starting Monday, November 7th, we're teaming up the Baird Group here in town for four weeks of broadcasts. We're offering local businesses a one-hour "van-hit" broadcast.
That broadcast will be hosted by Angel Welsh, Barb Birgy, Dave Spencer or me. And, trust me when I tell you, we cannot wait to come hang out with your and your customers and share your business and services here at WBKR.
If you would like more information about this opportunity, all you have to do is email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As I mentioned, Wwe will be offering up to TEN broadcasts per week with a limit of one per business. So, hurry! If history repeats itself, these spots are going to fill up incredibly quickly. Just shoot me an email and I will hook you up with a member of the sales team to get the ball rolling, get you complete details about the broadcast and talent fee and get you booked.
#WeLoveLocal is our way of using our talents and resources to give back to and celebrate small business with some TLC. Time. Love. Commerce!
*Broadcast is FREE. Owner simply pays talent fee*
