What is a Community Partner?

WEFT’s Community Partners Program offers an arrangement in which a business or organization makes a contribution to the station, a non-commercial broadcaster, in exchange for acknowledgment of that support on the air.  These announcements can identify your basic services, location, hours of operation, and contact information.
