WAMU Community Accounts

Food Vendor Busy Making Crepes by John Brighenti

WAMU and DCist offer tailored sponsorship opportunities for local businesses, nonprofits, event organizers, and others who serve the community in unique ways but don’t have the budgets of large corporate sponsors. Our Community Accounts team believes that local businesses and organizations like yours put the “public” in public media, and our listeners are your biggest fans.

Our Commitment to You

  • We know how to give local businesses a leg up in the competitive world of public media sponsorship

  • We help you create effective broadcast and digital campaigns that provide maximum results for streamlined investments

  • We provide you with self-serve options like automated ordering, copy submission and upfront payment
