Underwriting

WNIT Public Television offers several opportunities to help market your business.

Many large and small businesses in Michiana support WNIT by underwriting the cost of local and national programs or sponsoring outreach events. When you underwrite a program on WNIT, you take advantage of the many unique benefits that we offer over other broadcast and cable TV networks.

To learn more about becoming an underwriter or for more information on sponsorships and levels, please contact Steven Funk at sfunk@wnit.org.

Benefits to becoming an underwriter:

  • Your message stands out in our uncluttered environment.
  • You're associated with the highest quality programming.
  • Your message reaches a highly desirable audience.
  • You're linked with the valued PBS® brand.
  • Our viewers will hold you in high regard.
  • You get additional impact beyond the screen.
