KUOW is proud to provide in-kind on-air support for non-profit events happening in our broadcast region through our Media Sponsorship Program. Sponsored events are chosen in an effort to expose our listeners to a variety of cultural, artistic and community experiences that entertain, promote discourse and increase participation in our community.
Media Sponsorship Awards
Media Sponsorship awards consist of on-air messages, an online events calendar listing and text mentions in KUOW printed and electronic communication pieces.
KUOW is proud to offer two types of media sponsorship:
Series/Season Sponsorship: Sponsorship granted to a series of events within one year. This type of sponsorship applies to theatre, concert, dance, literary, film or any other series- based activities.
Single Event Sponsorship: Sponsorship of a single event. This type of sponsorship applies most to annual festivals, single museum or art exhibitions and other special one-time events. Single events within a series/season may be considered for a Single Event Sponsorship instead of a Series/Season Sponsorship.
