As Corporate Development Director at WKAR, part of my role is to reach out to businesses in the mid-Michigan community and try to sway  marketing or corporate support dollars to underwriting messages on one of our great stations. One of my main back-pocket selling tools is that our viewers and listeners at WKAR want to support businesses who support us. Well, this email just came across my desk and I thought I would share it with all of you as this statement has never rung more true than today.

Fri. Sep. 26 - 6pm in East Lansing | Look for your favorite WKAR stars and characters, as "Spartans Make Headlines" in the MSU Homecoming Parade.
