Underwriting: What it is and is not.
What Underwriting is:
Underwriting is an announcement of support.
While listener-members are the major sponsors of WTGP, we also welcome support from local businesses and other non-profits. By underwriting a WTGP program, a business contributes to WTGP operations and is thanked for it during that program.
Businesses may underwrite with money or with a trade of goods or services.
What Underwriting is not:
Underwriting is not advertising. WTGP is committed to our non-commercial status and adheres strictly to the FCC's definition of non-commercial.
WTGP's underwriting announcements may be prerecorded or read live. They are read verbatim, with neutral inflection and no music.
The text is basically this: "This program is supported by you, the TGP listener member, and by ABC, whose product 123 is available at XYZ. They can be reached at...".
WTGP and the business will negotiate the actual wording of the underwriting announcement.
WTGP underwriting announcements are regulated by the FCC and must conform to the following guidelines.

HOW YOU CAN BECOME PART OF THE WTGP RADIO MINISTRY
Thank you for your interest supporting the work God is doing through this non-profit radio ministry. As an underwriter, your monthly donation would be used to broadcast solid-Bible teaching and Christ-centered worship music 24 hrs a day. In exchange, we would air acknowledgement spots for your business or organization daily, depending upon your agreement.
Area Businesses can sponsor a program on WTGP 99.9FM for as little as $30/month. And what do you get for your Business Donation?
1. On Air announcements
2. Listing on the Radio Newsletter distributed in 3 counties.
3. Listing on the WTGP Website (By Business Type and Location).
4. An opportunity to place your business in the GOOD NEWS monthly distributed to readers throughout the county (optional).
And as an upgrade for only $60/month:
You get all the above, plus a special notice IMAGE, SPECIAL FONT plus a link to your website, and an additional 5 program announcements on-air, each week, for the month.
And for $99/month (limited to 10 businesses (8 remaining)):
You get the above listings plus 10 on-air announcements per week. That's 15 additional on-air spots per week plus a listing in the Good News Newsletter and listing online at the WTGP Radio website.
And if you want all the above and choose to pay annually, we will reduce your already low underwriting donation by another 10%.
And if you don't have a website for your business:
We can build one for you and link it to all the above for (a one-time fee) only $199 plus a small online hosting fee paid to others ($7.95/mo).
Website development valued at over $675.00, but only costs you $199 plus $7.95/month).
Let's honor and thank our Underwriters by supporting them as they have supported us.
