Underwriting Sponsorship

Federal Commissions Communication (FCC) “non for profit” underwriting is a way that permits non-commercial radio stations an opportunity to receive funding through means of community sponsorship. 

As a noncommercial station, FCC does not permit YCRadio to sell air time for advertising but through the Underwriting Sponsorship guidelines receive financial support. Sponsoring YCRadio will give your business a unique opportunity to serve as a resource to the community, in exchange for mentioning and creating awareness of businesses on the air. 

The on-air appearance and overall effect of each credit and credit sequence must be in keeping with the noncommercial nature of FCC NY State.  

All underwriters must be identified in audio by name and cannot be anonymous. 

The following may be used and acknowledged in an underwriting spot:

  • Telephone number, email address, website, and location of business or area served.
  • Days of operation.
  • A listing of up to three items, products, or services.
  • Product origin.
  • Intended use of product.
  • Product content.
  • Form of delivery or method of preparation.

Standard Opening Line: “YCRadio would like to thank (your business) for their support.”

Standard Closing Line: “More information is available at {phone number} or online at {web address}” or “The phone number for more information is...”
