About Underwriting

Underwriting contributions from businesses, organizations and individuals are the major source of revenue for non-commercial, educactional, community stations such as WVQC-LP. The FCC allows non-profit stations to fund themselves through the sale of underwriting. Underwriting is a form of limited advertising regulated by the FCC.

Underwriting messages may contain:

  • Company name, location, telephone number and web address
  • Established corporate slogan, provided it is not promotional
  • Value neutral descriptions of products and services
  • Vendor or trade names of products and services offered
  • Underwriting messages may not contain:
  • Calls to action
  • Promotional or qualitative language
  • Price information
  • Inducements to buy or sell

WVQC staff will work with you to craft your message. Messages are usually 1 or 2 sentences and last no longer than 20 seconds. For more information, view our underwriting agreement.
