To distinguish underwriting from commercial advertising, the following guidelines have been set by the FCC:
No price information, including of savings or value associated with the product. Mentioning that something is free is considered value association.
No "calls-to-action." This means a mention cannot urge someone to patronize a particular business. It cannot say "Stop in" or "Swing by" or anything to that effect.
An underwriting spot cannot contain an inducement to buy, sell, rent, etc. For example, it could not say "a bonus when you mention this ad" or "six months free service."
What Should My Underwriting Spot Include?
The name of the business, location, contact information such as phone number and e-mail addresses. Also add brand and trade names, product listings and value neutral description of services. End of spot should include a non-promotional slogan.
