Underwriter

Your business or organization can become an underwriter of programming on WRVO Public Media. Our network of 12 transmitters and repeaters reach listeners in more than twenty counties in central and northern New York as well as southern Ontario.

We're currently in a campaign to add 100 new underwriters in 2015. We'll show you how a cost-effective marketing plan can help your message reach tens of thousands of WRVO listeners, and pay dividends for years to come. Call us at 1-800-341-3690.

By underwriting with WRVO, you support your local public radio station while also reaching a large audience. Research shows that public radio listeners hold a more positive image of companies that support their choice of medium. WRVO underwriting representatives are available to help your business or organization reach our highly desirable radio audience with your marketing message.

In addition to our flagship station, 50,000 watt WRVO 89.9FM Oswego/Syracuse, the WRVO network includes WRVD 90.3FM Syracuse; WRVN 91.9FM Utica; WRVH 89.3FM Clayton; WRVJ 91.7FM Watertown; WRCU 90.1 FM Hamilton; WSUC 90.5FM Cortland; and booster transmitters in Geneva, Hamilton, Ithaca, Norwich, and Watertown.
