Mountain Streams Underwriting

Mountain Streams Radio, WKYW-LP, Keyser, WV, is a broadcast service of the Mineral County Convention and Visitors Bureau, broadcasting from Catamount Place on the campus of WVU 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 Mineral County area. We can be heard on the radio at 102.9 FM and you can Click Here to Listen On-Line. 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 can not sell advertising to support our programming. We 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. The Mineral County Convention and Visitors Bureau (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.
