Community Connection

WNRN is proud to give our non-profit neighbors a venue to promote their causes and events. As part of the Community Connection series, we broadcast public service announcements for non-profits that are written in their words and recorded in their voice.

Creating a Community Connection is an easy process. Sign up for a time to meet with us and record your message here. During scheduling, you’ll be prompted to write a message outlining what you’d like to promote, which we’ll use as your script for recording. If it is an event, WNRN requires at least three weeks advance notice to create a Community Connection for any event. If there is an admission or cost for the event, 100% of proceeds must benefit the nonprofit.

Organizations profiled by WNRN or organizations whose information is broadcast within Hear Together/Community Connections must be a registered 501c3 and must submit their 501c3 letter of registration prior to recording or participating in Hear Together/Community Connections.
