WHUR FREE Radio Promotion for Restaurants

May 1, 2020

Dear Restaurant Operators,

During this COVID-19 pandemic, we are diligently working to share helpful resources and opportunities that are available to you as you navigate through this crisis. RAMW was recently contacted by WHUR Radio about a special promotion they are offering to local restaurants. WHUR recognizes this is a time to give back to our small businesses and communities that we serve. As a result, they have created the "Open for Business" on-air promo that will highlight local restaurant businesses.  The purpose of this program is to help elevate and market local businesses during the COVID crisis.

Operators can talk about what they are offering during COVID-19, take-out, delivery, etc, and share a link with how to order. Or, they can feature their chef, a special menu, etc. The platform will be IG Live - reaching their 14,000 followers, and recording will also be linked to their FB followers (85,000). Operators' IG followers will be notified to watch. The format is a Weekly promo - featuring 4 restaurants. The cost is FREE.  This is WHUR’s way of helping the community during COVID-19 Crisis.

How It Works


  • The Open for Business promo will include a total of 4 restaurants in each promo to include their name,location, phone number, and hours of operation, encouraging listeners to order food for delivery/pick up.


  • Restaurant Information listed on’s website on a page specifically highlighting restaurant businesses that are open
  • HUR @Home Social Video Series- Weekly 15 minute segments that can feature a chef/owner of a restaurant
