NPR's Underwriting Woes


 An interesting article on NPR's flattening growth curve.  Hmmm, methinks people around the world have many more media choices than they once did; crisis or opportunity?

KBOO sets the standard for integrity in underwriting.


Here’s a story from “Marketplace” with some interesting discussion on the effects of corporate underwriting on noncommercial programming integrity and the importance of a firewall between programming and underwriting.

I always take so much pride in pointing out that KBOO has perhaps the most stringent set of restrictions in the nation regarding who may underwrite, and we field many calls from stations around the country looking to ensure that their policies are comprehensive and sustainable.

Underwriting follows programming, not the other way around; we don’t create programming to attract underwriters. Underwriters want to be associated with quality programming.

Goodbye Listener's Guide, Hello Additional Promotional Opportunities


Greetings esteemed KBOO supporters,

Well, the final Listener's Guide has been released, and thus comes the end of an era. Some of you have been advertising in the Guide for longer than I've been at KBOO, which is a long time indeed. We have been grateful for your support, now more than ever, and we have been thrilled to work with you to help promote your work to the region's most progressive and diverse members of the community; we like to think this has been mutually beneficial.
