                 nderwriting on KBUT is an effective and affordable use of marketing and public relations dollars. Whether you are
                 looking for long-term positioning or top-of-mind awareness, underwriting spots offer the perfect way to transmit
                 your company’s message to the entire Gunnison Valley. Professional listener surveys conclude that KBUT is the
                 most listened to radio station (public or commercial) in Gunnison County. Every underwriting announcement on
  KBUT reaches into the homes, automobiles and offices of community and business leaders.
       In addition to building awareness for your products and services, underwriting KBUT builds goodwill for your business or
  organization by demonstrating your support of public broadcasting in the Gunnison Valley.
       Underwriting rates are very competitive with advertising rates from other local media outlets. Even better, underwriting is
  tax deductible!
