KOCT OFFERS UNDERWRITING OPPORTUNITIES FOR North County BUSINESSES
KOCT.org has produced and broadcast thousands of North County focused programs for more than 30 years. KOCT operates two channels within the City of Oceanside - The Government Channel 19 and The Community Channel 18. Established as a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) corporation in 1984, we are not your ordinary TV station. KOCT is a non-commercial live streaming PEG(Public, Education and Government)channel with the unique mission of providing local interest programs about and for the community in which we live.
When you become a KOCT Program Underwriter your message is available to 55,000 cable subscriber homes in Oceanside on Cox Communications. Your message will also be seen countywide for AT&T U-Verse subscribers, in addition to our television programs being available everywhere online at www.KOCT.org.
HOW UNDERWRITERS ARE RECOGNIZED ON KOCT
As a non-commercial television channel, KOCT must follow FCC (Federal Communications Commission) guidelines and regulations. We can identify your business or product in many ways but we cannot “promote” it. The reality is that most TV spots you would air on commercial television need very little modification to fit our standards.
Each underwriter’s 15-second spot opens and closes the KOCT program you’ve selected. KOCT introduces your spot with: “The following program was made possible by our program underwriters…” This introduction is not part of your underwriters spot.
Underwriters may choose an on air display of their;
Business logo or photo of the place of business
Tagline or identity statement.
Your credit can also include a toll-free number or a website address. KOCT will provide a “basic” underwriting spot with supplied photos, business logo or graphics and your identity statement or slogan or we can edit your existing spot to meet FCC Guidelines. If you would like a more elaborate Underwriting Spot, KOCT can provide production services to create the spot you envision. Just call KOCT at (760)722-4433 for more information.
