Underwriting vs. Commercial Advertising
- We are a noncommercial radio ministry supported by contributions and not advertising. When your business, church or organization makes a financial contribution to us, your support is acknowledged on air. This is known as underwriting.
- The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has given us a set of guidelines for wording of these underwriting announcements.
Underwriting Announcements may include:
- The name of your business/church/organization
- Your address, telephone number and/or web site
- Brief examples of products and/or services offered
Underwriting Announcements may not include:
- Comparative language (e.g., “the best,” “award-winning”)
- A call to action (e.g., “see them today,” “call us”)
- An inducement to purchase or participate (e.g., “free estimates,” “this month’s special is…”)
- Pricing, whether regular or discounted
WGRC is a Wise Investment
- Your underwriting announcement will be surrounded by tasteful, professional programming that follows biblically-based standards. It also stands out, because listeners only hear a few per hour, not several in a single commercial ‘set.’
- 71% of contemporary Christian radio listeners are in the 25-54 media-buying demographic. (Arbitron)
- 33% of adults say they would be more open to purchase a particular brand if the company embraces and supports the Christian faith. (Barna Survey, 2011)
How many announcements will I receive for my donation?
- You may either tell us how many announcements that you would like us to run or you can give us a budget and we can work with you to develop a schedule that best fits your needs.
- Bonus: Any underwriter with an active “TFN” contract in good standing will be listed on the WGRC web site with your name, address and telephone number and a direct link to your web site, so folks may find out more about you!
