Sponsorship Policy
KBEM (Jazz88) accepts sponsorship at their sole discretion, and reserves the right to refuse underwriting sponsorship from any company for any reason. KBEM accepts sponsorship as an endorsement of the value of public radio and the special value of  KBEM programming. Any implied endorsement flows from the underwriter to KBEM, not KBEM to the underwriter.
