ENGAGEMENT

Underwriting programs for MPB provide a unique value for organizations to gain brand awareness and promote events or exhibits. MPB’s television and radio networks reach over 95% of the state, which offers a one-stop shop to get a message to all Mississippians.

BRANDING

People recognize public media as being trustworthy, and MPB has a very strong reputation for credibility, integrity and impartiality. When an organization underwrites MPB programming, the listener/viewer’s trust of MPB is transferred to that underwriter. This brand alignment is called the “halo effect,” and it is powerful.

VISIBILITY

Underwriters are highlighted in MPB programming. MPB’s broadcast schedule has fewer breaks compared to commercial stations, where advertisements are stacked to fill up a significant amount of airtime every hour.
