Media Factory Underwriting

Become an underwriter and join the local, independent media movement in our region. Support our work and increase your visibility to a diverse, engaged and vocal community.

 

The Media Factory is a vibrant community media space in Burlington's South End, home to community media organizations RETN and VCAM, and the low-power FM community radio station 99.3 WBTV-LP. At the Media Factory, community members and groups learn how to make media, have access to professional video and audio production tools, and create media that is distributed on our broadcast and digital channels to the region and beyond.

 

A Unique Opportunity to Connect with Your Community

Underwriting at the Media Factory provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for local businesses and organizations to reach out directly to their constituents throughout Chittenden County and beyond via television, radio and the internet.

  • Community TV

    RETN & VCAM's eight cable television channels offer a distinctly local, Vermont-made viewing experience with programs from local educational institutions, municipal governments, filmmakers, artists, musicians, nonprofits, and many other community-engaged citizens. Collectively, our eight channels reach over 40,000 cable subscribers in 13 different towns.

  • Community Radio

    99.3 WBTV-LP FM can be heard in Burlington, South Burlington, and parts of Winooski, Essex, Williston, Colchester, Shelburne and Richmond. It currently features over 40 unique programs that speak to the heart of our community. Whether it's talk radio, music, comedy, or an eclectic mix, WBTV-LP's programming reaches a diverse, hyperlocal and engaged audience.

  • Community Media Online

    RETN & VCAM, with help from community volunteers, maintain four websites dedicated to sharing local community media content. Our web presence is supported by an active network of social media accounts and e-newsletters that reach over 5000 subscribers.

UNDERWRITING PACKAGES AND RATES

Underwriting is a donation in exchange for broadcast or digital mention of "matter." While it is similar to advertising, there are strict rules for how an underwriting mention is designed and scheduled. Several levels of underwriting are available, including the ability to underwrite individual projects of the Media Factory.
