Media Assistance during the COVID-19 Pandemic

​949 The Bridge is offering Public Service Announcements for local businesses affected by COVID-19 closures and cancellations

In the midst of the current situation, 949 The Bridge would like to send a message of support and commitment out to our local community. This situation of public health concern and the effects of it are something our communities have never faced before.  As a small local business ourselves, and a trusted local media source we find it necessary to support our local community by offering our platform to any local businesses affected by the current shut downs attributed to COVID-19. We are putting together announcements to be aired informing the public of any local businesses who are temporarily shutting down, limiting service to pick up or delivery, implementing extraordinary precautionary sanitation and cleaning procedures, social distancing practices, or just letting the public know that you're still doing business. If you are a local business owner who’d like us to include your business’ updated services or procedures please email the information to, and we will include you in these announcements. It’s important during this time to maintain our sense of community, and continue to support each other as best we can, while taking necessary precautions to keep everyone safe. We will overcome, and we will come out strong and unified if we remember that we’re all in this together. Thank you.
