What our underwriters are saying about WTMD
We absolutely love the programming on 89.7 WTMD! It’s so compatible with the incredible talents that we book at Rams Head On Stage! 89.7 WTMD has preserved the spirit and concept of the Triple A format and they are terrific, responsive partners.
In a world of radio station ‘sellouts’, WTMD shows great integrity in preserving the format.
We could not ask for a better marketing partner than WTMD. They treat us like family and take a personal interest in our local restaurant by embracing our diversity and providing innovative ideas to better connect with their dedicated listeners. The station’s enthusiasm for quality music, culture and local business is contagious and fosters a unified community that we are proud to be part of!
WTMD is a valuable part of our marketing plan. The station is fiercely independent and supports local bands and businesses. The care that goes into cultivating their musical playlist (on a local, regional and national level) and events is super apparent by the following of their devoted local listeners, which have translated to our customers.
Comedies. Love stories. Tear-jerkers. History chronicles. At the nonprofit Chesapeake Shakespeare Company, we perform the great classic stories that capture the human experience, and we often incorporate contemporary music in our staging of these plays. That makes WTMD a perfect promotional partner: You curate each of your shows with care and hand-picked music. We’re two of a kind. Our audiences are alike in their appreciation for well-chosen storytelling and melodies. Who but WTMD appreciates and helps us celebrate that hundreds (if not more!) contemporary songs mention Romeo and Juliet! (Shout if you ever want to do a special show devoted to this, OK? Really. We mean it.) When we expanded our programming from Howard County into Baltimore, WTMD was right there to help us broaden our reach and find new customers in the greater metro region. Well played, WTMD. We love working with you.
