WXGN, owned and operated under the auspices of JOY Broadcasting, Inc. broadcasts 500 Watts @ 90.5 FM to the Ocean City, Somers Point, Linwood, Marmora, SE EHT area. Our format is AOR. We are a Christian Rock Radio Station playing the full gamut of modern rock featuring major label, indedpendent label, and local artists. An Arbitron reporting station, we were knighted the 'X', and our station tag is "Truth That Rocks". We are a ministry that operates under a 501(c)(3) license and are listener supported with the legal ability to be sponsored by local businesses and organizations.
We invite you to join us as a sponsor or partner in our effort to reach listeners; if you're interested please shoot us an email. Sponsors are businesses or ministries that receive 30 second to 60 second radio spots to mention their names, products, services, hours of operations and contact information. Partners are individuals, families, businesses, or ministries that partner with us monetarily with no on-air mentions or spots.
Sponsorships start at $750.00 a year for one 30 second spot during peak business hours 360 days a year. We do not run sponsorship mentions on Christmas, Christmas Eve, or Good Friday-Easter. We are also able to host an event at your location for a nominal fee.
Two easy ways to help support this ministry is to use GoodSearch as your search engine naming WXGN as your charitable organization of choice, and to use GoodShop when making online purchases, again making WXGN your charity of choice. WXGN will receive one penny each time you search the internet, and a percentage of the cost of your online shopping order.
WXGN invites you to be on the radio! Local youth groups, youth leaders, and youth ministries are all welcome to come on board for a daily or weekly broadcast. Prices for airtime are currently set at less than one dollar a minute.
WXGN is looking for a volunteer intern that specializes in web design. Volunteers can know that they are helping further the cause of Christ.
A professional webmaster can trade their expertise and time for sponsorship spots.
We aslo need volunteers in the areas of Street Teams, bookeeping, data entry, news reporters, technical assistance for live remote events, and on-air personalities. The latter requires a working knowledge of the Christian Rock scene, a firm long term commitment, and letters of recommendation from a pastor/youth leader.
Help make WXGN grow into a Global Reality. The following are needed to make this happen: a new radio console mixing board (digital preferred), an RDS encoder, an HD radio converter, an effects processor, 3 broadcast quality mics. a codex for streaming, a production computer with the following software: BSI Simian, Natural Log, Natural Music, and Adobe Audition 3, and on On-Air computer with the same plus an Alessis Sound Card. Other needs include a live remote PA system (BOSE Stick 2), and a tricked-out Van.
We also need stickers, t-shirts, polo shirts, beach balls, mugs, and flyers.
Volunteers are also needed for BEACH FEST OCEAN CITY 2009 Saturday, May 23rd.
MOST OF ALL WE NEED YOUR PRAYERFUL INTERCESSION! PRAY FOR WXGN!!!
