TPR Sponsorship Opportunties

Sponsorship of TPR events is a wonderful way to support Texas Public Radio, connect your brand with an engaged audience, and get your business name out in front of a desirable group of decision makers and leaders within the community.

Below is a list of upcoming events. For more information on sponsoring an event, please contact Kellie Fichter at kellie@tpr.org.


Worth Repeating, Nov 7 at Brick at Blue Star

Seven storytellers have seven minutes to tell a true story from their life around a common theme. The community-based, storytelling program shared its first story at Geekdom in October 2015. Worth Repeating’s audience quickly outgrew the space and eventually moved to a larger space. With the majority of the listenership made up of a demographic of 40 years and under, your business is reaching a commonsensical group of individuals that have a relatively high income, professional careers, and carry a strong influence in the market. November's theme: Secrets & Rumors: Stories of ...You Guessed it, Both Secrets and Rumors.

There is an opportunity to sponsor the series.
