Building Relationships with Local Media with Elaine McNamara

October 10, 2017

What nonprofits say: The media is big and scary, they don't have time for my little thing.

What the media says: We want to help!

Building a relationship with your local TV stations, radio stations, and newspapers doesn't have to be rocket science, but you don't have to be a stalker either.  All it takes is getting to know what journalists and hosts need to do their jobs so they can help promote you! 

What's a PSA? Should I have a volunteer record a spot and send it to everyone? Who should I send things to? Wait, what's a media sponsorship... are they going to give us money? Elaine McNamara from 97.5 FM The Rock in Carlyle, Illinois is here to answer all of your questions about cozying up to local media. 

You can find the Rock on your dial at 97.5 FM near Carlyle or at www.wdljfm.com, on TuneIn, and on Facebook. If you're in the area and want to submit something about your organizition, send it to community@wdljfm.com

Debunking the Myth- Whose Responsibility is it to Give Back to the Community with David Sandusky of BEAST Craft BBQ Co.

April 4, 2017

You probably read the article from the Charleston City Paper by Angel Postell entitled Constantly Asking Restaurants to Give Freebies to Charities has Got to Stop.

Owner of BEAST Craft BBQ Co. in Belleville, IL, David Sandusky had to respond to Angel and all other restaurant owners who don't think that giving is part of a smart business plan.  

David shared his strategy and motivation for giving to the community and what nonprofits can do to increase their chances of a gift... but not his recipe for the fry sauce that Marjorie can't get enough of.  

You can show your support for this true community supporter by going to BEAST Craft BBQ Co. at 20 S Belt W, Belleville, IL 62220, going to their website at http://www.beastcraftbbq.com/  or calling 618-257-9000 or checking them out on Facebook
