The Power of Underwriting WSIU

Whether your business is large, small, retail, professional, business-to-business, governmental, or nonprofit... multi-state or around the corner... there is tremendous visibility in underwriting programming on the WSIU public radio and public television stations.

When you underwrite on WSIU TV or WSIU Radio, our viewers or listeners will identify your name, products and services with the high-quality programs that they love -- and that you have helped make possible through your underwriting support.

WSIU audiences understand and appreciate quality, they value services that they can trust, and they are loyal to underwriters who provide essential community support for public broadcasting.
