Underwriting and Sponsorship

Align your organization with the most trusted brand: RMPBS

For 13-years running, PBS is the most trustworthy institution, ahead of government, ahead of commercial broadcast TV, Cable TV, radio, newspapers and courts of law (View 2016 Public Trust Brochure). Your organization will cost-effectively reach a highly targeted statewide or regional audience, whether you wish to be in front of businesses and corporations; educated, engaged and loyal viewers; young families; business and community leaders; women or philanthropic citizens. Rocky Mountain PBS averages only 2 ½ minutes of sponsor messages per hour, compared to over 15 minutes commercial TV. Your message will be seen and heard by an educated and receptive audience. Rocky Mountain PBS viewers don’t tune-out…they tune-in.

Underwriting Testimonials

cacterisk_300x165.png"Rocky Mountain PBS is a premier partner for Cactus, and our clients, for the simple reason that it delivers both an audience and an advertising environment that we can't get from any other single source. In the 'sea of sameness' that much of broadcast advertising has become, they afford our clients the opportunity to really connect in a meaningful way with an important audience of influencers and opinion leaders." - Jamie Poston VP, Integrated Media at Cactus
