I’ve always loved the holidays. The anticipation of gatherings, the glow of Christmas lights at night, and the time for reflection to take note of what has happened in the past eleven months. The older I get, and the busier I get, it would appear that time really does fly by (I finally get it, Mom and Dad). Now, through my career at Leighton Media, I get to add to my list of why this is my most favorite time of the year, the launch of the annual Leighton Media, give back campaign Gratitude on Repeat.

A History on Gratitude

For the last five years, our team has partnered with local nonprofits across all of our stations in Minnesota and North Dakota through our Gratitude on Repeat Campaign. View the historical winners here.  

Community involvement is what these organizations live and breathe every single day. It’s what gets everyone in their organization out of bed in the mornings. It’s what lights their eyes up with excitement. Community involvement is also a core value that we live and breathe within Leighton Media – serving connecting and celebrating our communities is our passion!

Gratitude on Repeat

Since the birth of our Gratitude Campaign, we have been on a mission to keep the fire going – on repeat, as we continue to connect the real heroes in our lives with the resources they deserve to bring their cause to life.

Through the many transformations our company has experienced over the years, from the purchase of KCLD to our first Gratitude on Repeat Campaign, there is one aspect that has not changed — our companies dedication to serving people and helping their organizations thrive. Gratitude on Repeat enables nonprofits who traditionally may not always have the budget they would need to accomplish their mission.

Our Commitment to Community

Teamwork is an absolutely crucial part of making the Gratitude on Repeat Campaigns happen. Like in sports — how your team works together directly correlates with success for your organization. From Grand Forks, ND to Winona, MN, our on-air talent, social media gurus, and account executives give back on their own time. They truly stand behind bettering communities to make the world a more beautiful place to live — a testament to the power behind radio advertising and gratitude for the people it serves.

Radio + Gratitude

An organization that wins a Gratitude Campaign will receive 21 radio advertisements per week, for 13 consecutive weeks in addition to a meeting with one of our expert account executives who will help you craft up to three unique messages for you to use for now and years to come. We hope our radio advertising at Leighton Media will strengthen your nonprofit’s connection to our communities. We cannot emphasize enough how much our team appreciates nonprofit businesses devotion and compassion when serving others. You're an inspiration to many!
