"Our corporate sponsorship efforts at WHRO, have been the best media investment we have made. Not only do we feel we are supporting  the efforts of a worthwhile organization, but  frequently we will hear from customers and business associates that they heard our support messages on radio, or saw them on TV, and they thank us for our support of WHRO."


Virginia Beach Rescue Squad Foundation

"In becoming a corporate sponsor with WHRO we found a supportive and knowledgeable partner in sharing our message and mission with the Hampton Roads community.  It is a double bang for our buck being able to tell our story all the while supporting WHRO, a truly valuable and respected asset to this region."

"Being a Corporate Sponsor with WHRO has really been good for our business. It gets our name out into the community and also helps support something we believe it.

Garden Atriums, Poquoson

"We are proud sponsors of WHRO Public Media. As developers of a sustainable homes community in Poquoson, Virginia, we have found the most effective way to reach people interested in changing their lifestyle, to put sustainability at the forefront, is through NPR WHRV FM. Over 80% of our visitors heard the announcement of our open house on WHRV-FM and they went to our web site first, arriving with a better understanding of the home and how it functioned. If the demographic you’re trying to reach matches NPR WHRV’s listenership, it’s an avenue well worth investment."

Stuart W. Rose, Ph.D. and Trina C. Duncan Garden Atriums, Poquoson gardenatriums.com
