PUBLIC EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP
Only VBS and the Virginia Association of Broadcasters can offer the NCSA (Non-Commercial Sustaining Announcement) or Public Education Partnership (PEP) Program. The PEP program is for use by government agencies and non-profit organizations. Through this program, these groups are able to contract with the VAB/VBS for statewide distribution of their message on Virginia radio and television stations.
How does the NCSA/PEP program work? In Virginia, there is a broadcaster trade association that works on behalf of the radio and television stations. Under the PEP/NSCA Program, radio and TV stations in Virginia donate airtime to the Virginia Association of Broadcasters (VAB). The VAB makes this airtime available to partner government agencies and nonprofits. We give you a guaranteed 3:1 or better return on your dollars via broadcasting your message on VAB member stations across Virginia.

The combination of VBS, the VAB, and MPI allow us to fulfill any and all media, broadcast, digital, social and out-of-home needs including production for all media types. In addition, we are fully able to offer full-service market research, strategy, and execution on all levels.
