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, Dec 12 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. December's theme: Obsessions. 

Current sponsor(s): Niche

McClain and Pinnacle Reception, Jan 21 at Magnolia Gardens

These gatherings take place three times per year, once in San Antonio and twice in the outlying communities that Texas Public Radio also serves (including the Snyder Texas in the Big Country, Highland Lakes northwest of Austin, and the Del Rio area east of San Antonio).
