Public Television is #1 in Trust
Brands benefit from the "halo effect" of Public Television sponsorship. Studies show that viewers like doing
business with Public Television sponsors, and perceive them to be leaders in their category.
Sponsors Stand Out in Public Television's Unique Environment
Public Television programming is uninterrupted and uncluttered, with far fewer commercial minutes than any
other network. And sponsors enjoy category exclusivity in each of the two sponsor pods.
Public Television Delivers A Premium Audience
Public Television delivers influential and affluent viewers, who are loyal to the sponsors that bring them the
programming they love.
On- and Off-Air Benefits
Sponsorship offers more than a prestigious on-air presence. Significant off-air benefits can help you achieve
your marketing goals.
Research proves the power of a Public Television sponsorship. You can improve your bottom line, enhance your
image, stand out as an industry leader, and more.
Public Television Sponsorships Go Beyond the Broadcast
Sponsorships extend reach with multi-platform packages — in social media, events, licensing, educational
outreach, and custom promotions.

I have always loved entertaining groups of friends for dinner parties
and for the holidays! Thus, many years ago, I began to focus on creating
plant-based dishes that would entice folks to visit and dine at my home –
even though many of my friends were not vegans, or even vegetarians, themselves.
My ambition was to offer outstanding plant-based fare that would please the
omnivorous palates of our neighbors, overnight guests, and visiting relatives.
As my veggie creations became more and more popular with family and friends,
I continued to focus on creating fabulously delicious, vegan versions of classic,
traditional American Cuisine. Many people today are selecting vegan alternatives
for good reason:
• As the US government and many renowned doctors, hospitals, and cancer treatment centers suggest, a balanced
plant-based diets can ﬁght cancer; reduce the effects of osteoporosis; reduce weight, blood pressure and
cholesterol; and keep our bodies younger and ﬁtter!
• Eating plant-based meals reduces our carbon footprint and has a positive impact on the environment and potentially
global warming, as well as usually being cost-effective!
• According to Environmental Defense Fund, if every American substituted just one meat-based meal per week with a
vegetable and grain based meal, the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million
cars off of our roads.
• Concern for the welfare of animals.
• By choosing just one meatless meal each week, anyone can begin to make a difference in becoming healthier,
wealthier, and environmentally wiser!
