Local Broadcast Power

Advertising with WDEF, puts the power of a local broadcast television station on your side.

The Power of combining Internet and Television

  • The powerful reach of television combined with the targeted, interactive nature of the Internet, delivers a powerful “1-2 punch” that no other local media can match. WDEF drives viewers to WDEF.com for the latest news, weather, sports and consumer information.
  • WDEF offers local advertisers the opportunity to reach a targeted, local audience with integrated on-air/online campaigns. We possess an unmatched power of promotion, driving viewers from on-air to online and back again.

Our goal as WDEF’s Sales Team is to help our clients connect with potential customers and develop their businesses through creative marketing using the two most powerful advertising mediums ever created, broadcast television and the internet.


Television advertising is perceived as the VERY most influential and affords your product or service built-in acceptance.
