Sponsor Terms of Agreement
To provide sufficient time to schedule and record sponsor messaging, all broadcast orders (including sponsor copy) must be approved by noon on Wednesday preceding the week they start airing.
WEKU will not schedule sponsor messaging without an approved Broadcast Order. New clients must provide a signed Broadcast Order, which represents approval of the schedule and message. Clients in good standing may approve by email. WEKU determines the voicing for all messages and does not provide audio files for client review. If requested, audio files may be provided as a courtesy, after an order is approved and scheduled.
Once an order is approved, any changes to the schedule will incur a 25% contract revision fee, which will be billed on the next invoice.
WEKU sponsors with event-related, date-specific messages may cancel messaging two weeks in advance of the event if extraordinary circumstances lead to an event cancellation. WEKU will provide credit toward a future order for any spots that have not run. Per station policy, refunds are not provided. Once a broadcast order is approved, WEKU will bill according to the approved payment method.
WEKU tries to run all spots as scheduled. However, special coverage may pre-empt regular programming. WEKU reserves the right to pre-empt spots for special coverage of breaking news or elections and will make good for any missed spots as soon as practical or provide credit. WEKU does not refund payment for pre-empted spots.
WEKU expects payment within 30 days of receipt of an invoice. Any payment that is more than 60 days past due could result in cessation of an order until payment is received.
All payments must be mailed to the station at:
