The Idaho State Broadcasters Association, founded in 1950, is organized to further the interests of broadcasters in Idaho. Professional enrichment of the membership is one of the principles of ISBA and, in that context, the encouragement of students considering broadcasting as a career is an important ISBA mission.

Participating in the NCSA Program for Radio and TV

ISBA Non-Commercial Sustaining Announcement Program (NCSA)
The NCSA program is designed to help organizations that operate in the public interest, such as non-profits and state agencies, get their messages heard in an organized manner. Here's how it works:
  • A non-profit or government agency funds the ISBA to distribute their public education message. 
  • The agency provides pre-recorded spots that the ISBA distributes to its member stations. 
  • The agency then receives advertising time donated by ISBA broadcast stations. 
  • Station affidavits confirm when and where the message has aired.
