We need your help, Lafayette!
First off, WWCC isn’t all about money — no. Our mission is spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the airwaves and internet, but here’s what most of our listeners don’t know: We air 98.5% of our programs with no financial support from the program originator. That’s right — most of the programs you hear on WWCC are given as free airtime.
While we would probably be considered a “listener-supported” radio station, here’s a few facts and figures for you regarding WWCC:
- First, our primary mission is to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is in obedience to Matthew 28:18-20, aka “the Great Commission.”
- Since 2005, we’ve aired Gospel teaching 24 hours a day; 7 days a week.
- Our programming is Gospel-based and comprised of Godly-inspired, Bible-teaching pastors. Unfortunately, the pastors of these churches and ministries have budgets which typically exclude small radio markets such as Lafayette. It’s the classic “best bang for the buck” story, and Lafayette isn’t really a great radio market for low-power FM stations.
- Whether we like it or not, radio is a business and there’s no way around that. Everything from compliance with FCC broadcast regulations to broadcast, audio and IT equipment to transmission facilities has a price tag and only by God’s grace and generosity have we been able to stay on the air even this long.
- WWCC is an LP or Low-Power FM station. We cover the Greater Lafayette area – but that’s about it. From a marketing standpoint, we’re surrounded by farmland. To mesh with the Indy or Chicago markets just doesn’t work into our mission objectives. And in Lafayette, with Purdue and a huge international student community, our vision is clear — local evangelism.
We’re from Lafayette, we know Lafayette and we serve Lafayette. Our listening audience is much smaller than a larger megawatt station. This is why we need your help.
