Television On Air Sponsorship

Why support ETV and Public Broadcasting?

  • ETV actively benefits more South Carolinians each day than any other group assists in weeks.
  • By a 2 to 1 margin, adults find Public Broadcasting more important and informative than regular TV.
  • 87% of South Carolinians surveyed feel that ETV is a good or excellent value for their tax dollar.
  • Cultivate a positive image by your partnership with us.
  • Independent audience research shows that public television sponsors are held in high regard as benefactors of valued programs.
  • There are few media as dependably uncluttered and sure of viewer's full attention.
  • Recent Roper studies find that adult viewers still find us more interesting, more important, more imaginative and more stimulating than either network programming or cable TV.
  • Public Television continues to maintain and slightly increase its audience, while network television is losing audience share.
  • More adults 35 - 49 watch Public Television than the cable channels A&E, CNN, TLC, Discovery or Nickelodeon. More watch us than any two of these combined.
