Community Involvement

We are proud to call the Four States home. We value our close relationships with our listeners and with our advertising partners in the area.

As broadcasters, we’re honored to be able to provide free entertainment and news to our listeners. As marketing partners, we value meeting with small business owners and helping them grow.

In addition to serving our listeners and business partners, we believe deeply in community service. Through our company-wide Zimmer Marketing initiatives and our employees’ individual efforts, we work to ensure that Joplin and the Four States are as enjoyable places to live as they are to work.

Four States Community

Zimmer Marketing also speaks to civic and community groups about marketing, media, best practices, and how it all works.  If you are interested in having a Zimmer Marketing representative speak to your group, contact us.

Need help marketing your community event or does your organization need a website?  Zimmer Marketing is here for you and your community group. Contact Zimmer Marketing first.
