Underwriting is essential to running our stations’ as we are the smallest community owned radio media in the country!  There are no ‘automatic’ state funds nor ‘financial security of a major university or other entity.  Program sponsorships are available at many levels of support giving, allowing for most all marketing budgets to find a niche for public broadcasting.

Menu of Sponsorship Opportunities

Radio – Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Fresh Air, Performance Today and Prairie Home Companion are just a few of the programs that are available for underwriting.  Radio rates range from $25 -$50 per spot.
