The show is available to all WBA television stations, free of charge. It can start airing anytime and is suitable for airing during the holiday season and thereafter as a way to highlight the importance of broadcasting in Wisconsin and the achievements of this year’s inductees. Airing the video is an excellent way to promote and enhance the image of the broadcasting industry in Wisconsin.
