What is Underwriting?
In 1998 KGCR’s license was changed to a non-commercial status. The F.C.C. authorizes non-commercial stations to acknowledge gifts or grants from businesses who underwrite specific programs or portions of our programming. Recognition of those gifts on the air is referred to as an underwriting message.
Who can Underwrite?
Businesses, Churches or Organizations who want to support the Christian radio ministry of KGCR by underwriting or sponsoring a portion of our program can receive “on air” acknowledgment of their support through an underwriting announcement.
