Statewide Sponsorship

Florida Public Broadcasting Service, Inc. is the association for all public radio and television stations in the state of Florida. For over 40 years this association of Florida stations has worked with state agencies to deliver classroom materials, train teachers and utilize our radio network for emergency evacuation operations.

In the interest of building a more efficient marketing system, the stations have developed and operate a central office where sponsors can obtain local rates, station demographics, and tailor schedules through a single site. In other words...one stop shopping.

Radio has become an important player in the promotion of nationally prominent brands. But the role of radio is even more crucial in the branding of local companies and products. Radio has the ability to create top-of-mind awareness, and elevate the recognition level of virtually any advertiser - whether they're known on Wall Street or located on Main Street.

PBS program sponsorship is recognized by corporate leaders as an effective communications tool, bringing value to companies and their employees and special acknowledgement and appreciation from customers and PBS viewers like you.
