As a sponsor, you’ll partner with the beloved radio show A Way with Words, which has a devoted fan base both in San Diego County and in more than 300 other cities across the country. Sponsorship opportunities include on-air underwriting credits airing in all those cities, as well as social media mentions, a VIP reception, and event-day materials.

A Way with Words is a lively call-in radio show and podcast is about language and how we use it: word origins, slang, regional dialects, linguistic diversity, workplace communications, and the “linguistic heirlooms” that families pass down through the generations. The show is produced by Wayword, Inc., a San Diego 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and distributed to public radio stations, including KPBS, as well as educational institutions across North America. The nonprofit is supported with help from listeners, foundations, and corporate underwriters. All proceeds from this event will help the organization keep producing more episodes and continue serving our listeners.

Word by Word, held at the beautiful San Diego Natural History Museum in Balboa Park, will be an unforgettable evening of mingling, dinner, and a program that is entertaining, enlightening, and inspiring. We invite you to be a part of it.
