Frequently Asked Questions
What makes public broadcasting a good value?
Connecticut Public is unique because it reaches statewide viewing/listening audiences on television/radio. Our statewide coverage means that you don’t have to buy several stations/markets to reach the entire state.
Are there any restrictions on my marketing message?
We can help you craft your copy to effectively convey your marketing message and adhere to FCC guidelines. Our public television stations offer a variety of options (billboards and marketing spots that are 5-, 10-, 30-, 45-, and 60-seconds) and our radio station airs 15-second marketing spots that are read live. If needed, we can usually tweak or re-edit your television spot to adhere to FCC guidelines, if you provide us with the video components (audio, video, music bed, logos, etc). We can also work with you to produce a customized spot.
What do the terms underwriting and sponsorship mean?
Underwriting and sponsorship are public broadcasting terms for advertising. Our underwriters/sponsors buy schedules on our television and radio stations, just like they do on commercial stations.
What is a "credit"?
A credit is the public broadcasting term for a commercial or spot that airs on our television or radio stations.
What makes this advertising option different from the rest?
Connecticut Public is unsurpassed in providing a multi-platform approach to its sponsors. No other media outlet in Connecticut offers statewide television and radio, a full range of digital options, print, and more.
