WKAR would not be where it is today without the generous contributions from our corporate supporters. Below are a few testimonials from businesses in the mid-Michigan area:

" We sponsored Silver Bells in the City with WKAR because we wanted to be an active part of our community. Partnering with WKAR is a wonderful way to support local TV/Radio and get your name in front of businesses in this community. It is a mutually beneficial opportunity.  Additionally, WKAR provides wonderful programming, educational opportunities, and is an asset to the Lansing/East Lansing area. It is a living piece of history that benefits viewers, schools and the region as a whole"

     -Amy Mumby - Office Manager ASK

"Sponsoring WKAR is a positive way for Lansing Ophthalmology to make an impact in the community. Many of our patients tune into WKAR for educational and thought provoking programming. WKAR provides programming the entire community can enjoy. They cover local events and programs, filling a much needed niche."

     -Lisa Rentz - Marketing Director and Patient Care Coordinator at Lansing Ophthalmology

" The Jackson Symphony Orchestra has a long standing and very strong relationship with WKAR and wishes to continue and even strengthen that relationship because it increases the JSO's identity with the WKAR market. In return, strengthen our impact beyond the immediate Jackson area. Many of our longtime supporters, volunteers and audience members are also supporters of WKAR and the affiliation is beneficial for us in all areas of our service. We are also deeply involved in various collaborations with Michigan State University and it is important to continue our marketing efforts with the Lansing area."

     -Sharon Mack - Director of Marketing/Development at the Jackson Symphony Orchestra

"I have viewed Off the Record since at least 1977, in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Boyne City, and Lansing. We underwrite this show specifically because we have enjoyed it for such a long period of time, and feel that it greatly contributes to the knowledge of those who watch it. Tim has become a friend and a client. Downton Abbey is one of my wife's favorites, and we are pleased to help underwrite this very popular show."

      -Richard Rau- Hager Fox

"WKAR provides unique content and programming about arts, culture, entertainment, research, science, the economy, humanity- topics that matter but are seldom found through other sources. WKAR's programming comprehensively addresses global, state, and local affairs. Its loyal listeners balance out CATA's media mix."

       -Laurie Robison- Director of Marketing for Capital Area Transportation Authority

"We continue to underwrite the children's programming on WKAR TV because we feel the content and lessons provided in the programs align perfectly with our dedication to educating the youth."

        -Sarah Ermatinger- CP Federal Credit Union

"WKAR programming has always strived toward educating and informing in fun and engaging ways. As broadcast networks continue to focus more on pure entertainment, non-profit public media outlets are the last frontier of S.T.E.M. and S.T.E.A.M. centered programs. WKAR's active involvement in the local area community continues a long tradition of inspiring and nurturing youth in the interest and love learning which is vitally important."

         -Luke Miller- Director of Marketing for TechSmith Corporation

"WKAR listeners are passionate supporters of education. Our sponsorship reminds listeners that the Lansing Community College Foundation plays an important role in removing the financial obstacles to postsecondary education. MSU and LCC are partners in education that create a highly skilled workforce, healthier community, and economic success."

         -Dan McKean- Lansing Community College Foundation

"Michigan Creative has not advertised much in the past. When WKAR approached us to sponsor their programming on the radio, I immediately thought it would be a great fit. Not only do I listen to NPR and Current State, I know my potential customers do too. I am also an MSU graduate, so it really made sense. After the first week, we had a client call us for some video work that more than covered the cost of the entire year. WKAR cares about our community and state so it is a perfect fit for us at Michigan Creative."

         -Brian Town- CEO Michigan Creative

"Communities are constantly changing and WKAR is able to reach many different groups with their vast programming. As such, we are able to promote our shows to consumers who we may not have been able to reach without WKAR."

        -Sandra Phelan- Operations Coordinator at Jackson College

"Organizations like WKAR that can make news and culture accessible to all members of the community are important."

        -Dionanda Burnash- Creative Services Coordinator for the Flint Institute of Music

" We choose to support WKAR because we want to align our business with viewers that watch PBS News Hour, Frontline, and other in-depth news programs. We will continue our support because we want to make sure WKAR continues to provide the mid-michigan community with quality programs for future generations."
