KLAY Radio donates advertising to Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber members

KLAY News/Talk & Sports Radio, in a show of support for the economic growth of burgeoning area business, recently donated $25,000 in advertising to the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber to be awarded to its members. The donation is a part of KLAY’s initiative to drive economic success in this region.

“We are excited to receive this gift from KLAY to promote Tacoma-Pierce County businesses,” said Tom Pierson, Tacoma-Pierce County President and CEO. “KLAY recognizes the need to help local businesses during these challenging economic times and we are happy to offer our members this great opportunity.”

The $25,000 donation will be dispersed by the Chamber in $500 increments to randomly selected 21st Century Partners, continuing members and new members.

“We are proud to make this donation to the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber,” said KLAY’s General Manager Bob McCluskey. “We feel the Chamber does a fantastic job in advocating and promoting local business. This donation and our efforts are meant to compliment that. At KLAY we feel that local businesses are a big part of what makes this area so special. This donation is one small proactive step forward into our area’s bright economic future. Our local businesses are the cornerstone of Pierce County and we will do whatever we can to help new and established businesses contribute to the area’s economic viability. I encourage others to support business in this area by shopping local first.”
