WUSM is a live laboratory that media students use to get real-world experience for media careers. Students work as live and recorded show producers, news and sports reporters, audio engineers, social media, and many other aspects of the work realities of modern radio. By becoming a sustaining member of WUSM, your financial support makes that living laboratory a reality for the next generation of media professionals. Former student workers at WUSM have gone on to work in various capacities as sports network producers, radio news producers and talent, local and state-wide political communication professionals, television hosts and producers, and many other careers in modern media. We are proud to have had some excellent talent come through the doors of the WUSM studios. Your support is a big part of how that is possible. Please consider becoming a sustaining member today.

Member packages:

Singing Brakeman  sponsorship – $5/month for a year; sponsors get a WUSM certified member T-Shirt

The entry level of sustaining membership with WUSM is the Singing Brakeman sponsorship. Named after the father of country music born in Meridian, MS,  Jimmie Rodgers, this $5 a month sponsorship ($60 a year) is less than a burger combo at most fast food restaurants, but it adds up quickly. If 1000 people signed up for a Singing Brakeman sponsorship, WUSM would be able to cover all operating costs.  With your certified membership shirt, you can show your support for WUSM to others, hopefully encouraging others to support our cause as well.

Big Muddy sponsorship – $10/month for a year; sponsors get a WUSM certified member T-Shirt and Anker Verve wired in-ear headphones

The second tier of sponsorship with WUSM is the Big Muddy sponsorship. Named after the mighty Mississippi River, this $10 a month sponsorship ($120 a year) is about the cost of an adult movie ticket a month. You would get a certified member shirt to show your support for WUSM and encourage others, plus you would get an awesome pair of Anker Verve wired in-ear headphones to use to listen to WUSM on your phone or your computer. Anker ear monitors have consistently great ratings for sound quality and comfort.

To the TOP! sponsorship – $15/month for a year; sponsors get a WUSM certified member T-Shirt and Anker SoundBuds Slim wireless in ear headphones

The big one! Help WUSM get to the top with the highest sustaining membership tier, the To the TOP! sponsorship. This $15 a month sponsorship ($180 a year) is about the cost of a dinner at a chain restaurant a month (shop local, by the way!). Man oh man, if 1000 people signed up for a To the TOP! sponsorship, WUSM could host great events to show our support for our sponsors as well as providing many experience opportunities to our students. In addition to your WUSM certified member T-shirt, you would get an awesome pair of Anker SoundBuds Slim wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones. Don’t be tethered to your phone while you work out, run, walk, or other activities and still listen to WUSM with these high quality, highly rated ear monitors.
