Corporate sponsorship of WOSU Public Media programming builds a connection with your brand in our community and with highly-engaged public media audiences. Those that consume public media agree that they are more likely to trust a company that they hear and see advertising on public media. Aligning your organization with our audience creates a halo effect that builds brand trust and loyalty, creating a preference for your company.

Program sponsorship provides a brand lift and enhances corporate image with concise sponsorship messages in a high credibility environment. Corporate sponsorships with the WOSU audience create trust for your brand by connecting your brand’s support of a community asset that they value.

  • Educated — They value education, making higher education and lifelong learning a priority.
  • Influential — They drive trends through word of mouth and influence corporate and social networks.
  • Cultural — Passionate about the arts, they support local music, theatre, and museums.
  • Community-minded — They participate in community initiatives and are highly active in their neighborhoods.
