What is underwriting?

The FCC authorizes non-commercial stations to acknowledge gifts or grants from businesses or organizations that underwrite specific programs or portions of programming. Recognition of those gifts on the air is referred to as an underwriting message. Underwriting is a cost-effective investment in public relations, image promotion, and recognition. Your business or organization receives on-air credit at the beginning and end of each program, or hourly as length allows. Your underwriting announcement informs the listener who you are and what you provide, that you are an active supporter of Catholic Radio, and that you are making their favorite Redeemer Radio program possible!

What is the purpose of Underwriting?

Underwriting is assistance in the form of money, goods, or services provided by businesses and not for profit organizations in support of general or specific Redeemer Radio programming. Underwriting provides operating funds for Redeemer Radio, future growth and programming to strengthen Redeemer Radio's image within the community. Underwriting also provides opportunities for participating businesses to showcase their support for our programming.
