Explaining Underwriting On KGOU

Capitol Steps
Capitol Steps

July 10, 2016

This is from the Manager’s Desk.

There are a few tickets left for the Oklahoma City performance of the Capitol Steps, this Saturday at 8pm at the OCCC Performing Arts Center. There’s a link to the tickets on the KGOU web page, and I hope to see you in the audience.

I had a question from a listener, and realized I should talk more “underwriting.”  This is when a business or individual makes a financial gift to KGOU and receives an on-air acknowledgement or web page display ad.

There are two reasons. The first is transparency – the FCC requires us to disclose KGOU’s funding sources so you know from where the money comes.  And we want to say thanks, and as a result donors use on-air acknowledgments as part of their marketing plans. 

Corporations, companies, and services can donate to KGOU.  Contact Cameron Hutton, at underwriting@kgou.org for more information.

And be sure to thank our underwriters for their support! 


From the Manager’s Desk, I’m Karen Holp.
