Why Support Public Broadcasting in Florida?

Be a Brand Leader

Companies that partner with public broadcasting are thought of as leading businesses that are trustworthy and credible. Studies have shown that 63 percent of Americans are more likely to support companies that are involved with public broadcasting. Sponsors experience “The 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 percent of Florida’s population. From Pensacola to Miami and the Keys, FPBS is the footprint of Florida.

Influence Florida’s Citizens

Your public broadcasting sponsorship will showcase your product or service to a diverse audience of Floridians – families, seniors, professionals, homeowners, voters, young children. 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 public broadcasting stations are seen, heard and remembered at a level six times more often than commercial media.

Radio Underwriting

NPR in Florida targets the most influential citizens in the state. Opinion makers, business executives and civic leaders listen to NPR to 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 or brand wants to communicate to Florida’s leading 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, soccer moms or CEOs of large corporations. Florida Public Broadcasting stations provide access to PBS programming that educates, inspires and delights.

PBS delivers the most intelligent, highest quality programs on television. Program topics range from History, Arts and Drama, News and Views and outstanding children’s programming like Curious George and The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! Shows like The PBS News Hour, American Experience, Nature, Masterpiece Theatre and Nova connect a sponsor’s message to Florida’s most engaged citizens.

Community Outreach Programs Sponsorship

FPBS and its 26 PBS and NPR member stations throughout the state celebrate diversity in Florida.

Florida stations offer a wide variety of 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.


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.
