In addition to support from our listeners and the URI Student Senate, WRIU receives funding from local organizations and businesses in the form of underwriting.

By running an underwriting spot on a non-commercial station with no commercial advertisements, your message will not get lost in the shuffle of commercial airwaves. An underwriting spot on WRIU shows that your business or organization is forward thinking and interested in community, culture and the arts.

Businesses and organizations interested in underwriting a program, a programming block, or a sporting or other special event should contact the WRIU Office.
