Sponsorship & Business Support

Local Broadcast Sponsorship is a message identifying business, foundation, or individual support for the quality programs provided by PBS Hawai‘i. Sponsor acknowledgments air twice per program (once at the beginning, once at the end) for a period of six or twelve months, with an option for renewal. Over 45 local businesses, foundations, and individuals have chosen to support PBS Hawai‘i’s statewide broadcast by sponsoring their favorite programs.
