Why choose advertising (Underwriting) with NCM?

What commercial broadcasters call “advertising,” we in public media refer to as “underwriting.” Underwriting announcements are factual and seek to inform listeners about a service rather than induce them to purchase a product. If you are trying to reach a local, regional, or national target audience, video is one of the most effective ways to advertise and because there is no commercial clutter, your message will always stand out. Did you know that the cost of underwriting can be deducted as a business marketing or promotional expense?

We keep it simple. All you need to do is choose a project you are wanting to underwrite and choose the amount. We take it from there. Download the Underwriter form to get started
