Mountain Streams Underwriting

Mountain Streams Radio, WKYW-LP, Keyser, WV, is a broadcast service of the Mineral County Historical Society, broadcasting from Catamount Place on the campus of Potomac State College. Our mission is to celebrate the many musical traditions of West Virginia and the Appalachian region and to offer community radio services to the Keyser/Mineral County area. We are on the air locally at 102.9 FM. We are a non-commercial radio station, which means our purpose is to serve the community, not to make a profit for an individual or corporation. That’s why we call it “community radio”.

We would like to extend an invitation to you to join our family of underwriters, and so we are offering special underwriting opportunities to those businesses which contribute!

Since we are non-commercial, we will not sell advertising to support our programming. We will rely on donations from individual listeners and we are asking local businesses to help us sustain Mountain Streams Radio by underwriting. Underwriting means business support community radio. It is your opportunity to keep Mountain Streams Radio on the air. And your donation is fully tax-deductible since the Mineral County Historical Society (our parent organization) is a 501c3 charitable organization.

It is also a good way to let listeners know about your business and your personal investment in the community. When you make a donation (underwrite) we will air announcements that acknowledge your support and give some basic information about your business. Underwriting announcements may contain:

  • Name
  • Location
  • Phone Number
  • Mottos or Slogans that identify but do not promote
  • Value-neutral descriptions of a product line or service
  • Brand name or trade names and product or service listings that
    do not include qualitative or comparative language

Underwriting announcements may not contain:

  • Price information including any indication of savings or value
    associated with a product or service
  • A call to action (“Stop By” or “Try Our New Product”)
  • Inducements to buy, sell, rent or lease

Packages for Business Underwriters:

  • $1000: three announcements per day for one year
  • $500: one announcement per day for one year
  • $300: one announcement per day for six months
