Over 70% of KSUT's annual budget comes from our individual members, local businesses, and friends who donate in many ways to support the station.

You can use this announcement to honor birthdays, anniversaries, special events, or to encourage others to support the programming that you love! You can sponsor a day in your name or the name of your business.
Select NPR Programming Day Sponsorship as your premium, and include a short 15 second message in the comments section, that you would like read over the air when you pledge online at www.ksut.org. KSUT reserves the right to evaluate and edit any message that does not conform to KSUT and FCC guidelines. Your NPR Day Sponsorship message will be read once during Morning Edition, once during NPR headline news, and once during All Things Considered. Please allow two weeks from the time you sign up to the day of your sponsorship. If your day is not available, KSUT will contact you and you can select a different date of your choice.
