Ways to Sponsor KCET

As comprehensive marketing campaigns grow in importance, so do KCET's distinctive multi-platform options to advertisers. KCET offers sponsors unique marketing opportunities on-air, online and at events, which are available in any combination. No commercial broadcaster or cable network can offer such community- based marketing possibilities to its sponsors.

Local Television

KCET's large audience of local public television viewers watch our award-winning, high-quality programs across a number of genres, each with a generally distinct and premium audience. Local sponsors can run flighted adjacencies around any program and/or in any daypart. And for KCET-produced programs, such as SoCal Connected, sponsors can provide underwriting messages and billboards within the program.

National Television

KCET produces or distributes a number of national series available for sponsorship that air on   stations throughout the U.S. As with KCET locally produced programs, sponsors can provide underwriting messages and billboards within the program; flighting is available on most of the series. KCET nationally produced programs include:

  • Sid the Science Kid - children's daily series about how kids can begin to think and learn like scientists.
  • The Time to Care - upcoming innovative weekly series on aging adults and the people who care for them.


KCET.org gives sponsors a younger audience than available on KCET's television broadcasts, and with even higher levels of education, income and employment. Sponsorship options of the website include banners across the site or within defined sections, webcasts, video pre-rolls - all with generally less restrictive creative elements than allowed on KCET's air.


KCET offers corporate underwriters numerous real-world opportunities to interact with its audience, including the long-running KCET Cinema Series. Those interested in sponsoring the Cinema Series, or other KCETLink events, should contact Michele Garza, Executive Director of Events and Promotions, at 747.201.5485.
