How Underwriting Works…

Because WSLR is classified as noncommercial radio by the Federal Communications Commission, advertising is not allowed on our airwaves. However, Businesses or other organizations can show their support for community radio through underwriting announcements with language that is “non-competitive in nature.” 20-second statements may describe your business and are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission and WSLR standards.
