Where and When Will My Messages Air?
Virtually everyone who listens to the radio or watches TV will see and/or hear your message ... and that means pretty much everyone.
Most radio and television stations in Utah participate in the UBA PEP program. These stations have pledged their "best unsold air time" to the UBA for your message. PEPs run in all time slots and air statewide.
Radio and TV stations participation is voluntary so specific air dates and times cannot be guaranteed… but we do deliver results. In fact, we guarantee the value of actual documented air time will equal a 4 times your contribution.
