Introduction: Underwriting Regulations Overview

A clear understanding of the regulations and guidelines that govern a noncommercial broadcaster’s on-air acknowledgement of corporate financial contributions is important for corporate support professionals.  This Hub serves as a resource for stations to use during the local underwriting credit approval process. 

It is important to note that no set of specific rules or guidelines will anticipate every use or possible combination of creative elements that constitutes an underwriting credit or sequence of credits.  As always, the credit approval process should include consultation with your FCC attorney and your station’s local underwriting guidelines. This Hub is not intended to serve as legal advice or tacit approval for a credit or credit elements that may be holistically in violation of FCC regulations.
