PEP/NCSA

The Utah Broadcasters Association and its members are proud to be leaders in providing the citizens of Utah public service information..

The Utah Broadcasters Association (UBA) is the coordinator and distributor of PEP or Non-Commercial Sustaining Announcements (NCSA) for State Agencies and Non-profit organizations. With the help of Utah broadcast stations, the UBA is able to provide the public with timely public service information, while helping state agencies save tax dollars on the production and distribution of public service announcements. Through this program, participating agencies are provided with a comprehensive monthly report of their PEP/NCSA activities, clearly demonstrating the power and impact of broadcasting in Utah.

The Utah Broadcasters Association is your partner in fulfilling your commitment to public service.

Broadcasting UBA PEP/NCSAs is an ideal way for radio and tv stations to fulfill their obligation to operate in the public interest. With the help of the UBA, participating stations are assured that the public service announcements they broadcast are current and important issues facing the state of Utah. By taking part in this program, you can provide your audience with the latest public service information available and help the UBA in developing programs that better serve its members and the public.

NCSAs help make the UBA a stronger voice for Utah broadcasters.

The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) authorizes state associations like UBA to develop PEPs/NCSAs for use by state agencies and charitable organizations. With the NCSA program, stations donate broadcast time as they would for any public service announcement; however, they provide broadcast reports to the UBA that include the date, time and value of each spot. The reports are then compiled and given to the participating agency. With the broadcast reports, agencies are able to monitor the public reception and success of their programs. The UBA assesses the participating agency at 25% of the value of the airtime documented. The UBA uses these funds to cover the cost of administering the program, distributing the spots and providing additional services to the broadcasters and residents of Utah.

UBA asks each of its member stations to become a part of the Utah Broadcasters Association PEP/NCSA team. Participation demonstrates the commitment of the broadcasting industry to public service and strengthens the UBAs' ability to work for you.
