You would be surprised how easy it is to get your story told or your non-profit event promoted in the local media. Every year WGRT gives away tens of thousands of dollars of free promotion to local, regional, and national nonprofits. What is not acceptable is your nonprofit spending advertising dollars with other print or media outlets and then expecting it free from us. If your nonprofit has no marketing budget, you will more than likely get all the help you need from us. Be sure to send the notice of your event to firstname.lastname@example.org a couple weeks in advance so we can properly promote it for you. If we get it a day before the event, there is little we can do to help you. If you have a story you think should make the news, it is also easier than you think. Send your story to email@example.com, and, if verified, more than likely it will make it on the air. We try to be very fair and see to it that every story has a shot of making the news. Also, if you hear commentary on WGRT that you don’t agree with, we do offer the opportunity for a rebuttal.
