Why Support Public Broadcasting in Florida?

Be a Brand Leader

As a Sponsor, your business or organization can also experience this “halo effect” by supporting Florida Public Broadcasting.

All of Florida

More than 13 million Floridians watch public television or listen to public radio every week, and Florida Public Broadcasting’s member stations reach 99% of Florida’s population.

From Pensacola down to Miami, from the Keys up to Jacksonville, FPBS reflects the footprint of Florida.

Influence Florida’s Citizens

Your Public Broadcasting sponsorship allows your organization, product or service to showcase itself before a mixture of Floridians—homeowners, families, professionals, seniors, students, voters, and young children to mention a few of the potential audiences. The strength of Public Broadcasting is that it reaches all Americans.

A Clutter Free Environment

Underwriters of FPBS stand out in a clutter-free environment.  Messages broadcast on our network of PBS stations are seen, heard, and remembered at a level 6 times more often than commercial media.

Radio Underwriting

NPR in Florida reaches the most influential citizens in the state.  Opinion makers, business executives, and civic leaders listen to NPR to stay abreast of and understand the defining issues in their communities and the world around them.

Florida’s NPR listeners are highly educated and have above average household incomes.  If your business, brand, organization, or service wants clear communication with Florida’s leading citizens and influencers, Florida Public Broadcasting’s NPR network delivers this audience efficiently.

Television Underwriting

Each week PBS programming in Florida is watched by more than 66% of Florida’s population; it is a reflection of the community, delivering every demographic group from the mechanic down the street, working moms, active seniors, to the CEOs of large corporations.  Florida Public Broadcasting stations provide access to PBS shows and documentaries that delight, educate, and inspire its audiences.

PBS delivers the most intelligent, highest quality programs on television.

Program topics such as Arts and Drama, History, News and Views and Science are represented by shows like Masterpiece Theatre, Great Performances, American Experience, The PBS News Hour, Nature, and Nova.
PBS also offers outstanding Children’s Programming like Curious George and The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! , and Sesame Street now in its 45th season!

All of PBS‘s creative, innovative, and time-honored programs  connect Florida’s most engaged citizens to a sponsor’s message .

Community Outreach Programs Sponsorship

FPBS and its 25 PBS and NPR member stations throughout the state celebrate and reflect the diversity in Florida.

Florida stations offer a wide variety of local and national programs that address important diversity and community issues.  Programming differs by member station and by market.

Educational Outreach Programs Sponsorship

FPBS is involved with the leading educational initiatives in Florida. We partner with Florida’s Department of Education to operate Ready to Learn, the state’s largest literacy program helping at-risk, low income children.

Ready to Learn workshops in Florida markets provide grassroots support in helping young children to learn to read. Ready to Learn coordinators work with pre-K and kindergarten students and in running educational workshops that provide free books and learning to students, parents and caregivers.

Companies that sponsor educational outreach receive an integrated media program that combines PBS KIDS programming and Ready to Learn workshops.

Volunteer

Volunteers are key members of the public broadcasting family. They help perform vital functions at our member stations.  Contact your local station for more information.
