The River 98.9...2015 PA WILDS Award Winner



The River 98.9 – Best Brand Ambassador, Cameron County


A regional brand can be a powerful economic development tool. But it takes time and a big reach to build name recognition. It helps greatly to have media partners who understand and believe in your brand. This is especially true in rural PA, where people and businesses are more spread out and social media can still be limited in some areas due to connectivity issues. For several years now, the River 98.9 “Your Hometown Radio Station” has promoted the Pennsylvania Wilds as a place in its radio ads, talk shows and other programming. If you have driven through Elk or Cameron counties, you have probably heard announcers refer to stopping by this or that business “in the Pennsylvania Wilds,” or public service announcements for tourism activities in the region. These messages are heard by hundreds of listeners each week. We thank WQKY-FM and WLEM-AM owner, John Salter, and operations manager, Gary Mitchell, and their staff for this organic, grassroots support that is helping to build name recognition for the Pennsylvania Wilds.
