Underwriting Spot Guidelines

As a non-commercial radio broadcaster, KUVO must adhere to certain standards when recognizing underwriters. Rather than “promoting” businesses, KUVO gives underwriters factual recognition that keeps the company’s image consistent with the high level of quality KUVO listeners expect.

Spots must be noncommercial, concise and reflect the values of KUVO’s programming.

Underwriting Guidelines
15 seconds in length for corporations, 20 seconds for nonprofits
Noncommercial messaging: factual information can include product name, description of services, event dates and location
Credits may contain a phone number and/or website address
Well-established slogan, logogram or corporate positioning statement can be included
Spots are recorded by KUVO/KVJZ staff
Not Allowed
Comparative statements (ex: the best, largest, bigger, faster)
Subjective qualitative statements (ex: fine, great, superb)
Call-to-action statements that direct the audience to call, visit, try, compare, etc.
Call-out questions (ex: Want to know ..? or What is…?)
Price information, including free
Inducement to buy statements that direct the audience to purchase the product (ex: trial offer, 2 for 1, etc.)
First or second person pronouns (ex: I, me, you, your).
Mention of second parties – underwriting copy can only name the corporation or organization providing the sponsorship
Language advocating political, religious or social causes
