What is underwriting?

91.9 Classical KC acknowledges corporate contributions to the radio station with brief on-air messages called underwriting. Since these contributions help pay for programming costs, underwriting is to public radio what advertising is to commercial stations. The value and number of on-air messages is determined by their placement during the broadcast schedule. KCUR provides a rate sheet which specifies the values of the messages throughout our program schedule.

Who hears your messages?

Underwriting on Classical KC provides your business or organization an audience notably distinguished by its education level and professional success. You will benefit from reaching an audience which includes a high concentration of affluent, well-educated business decision-makers, community leaders and opinion shapers.
