WHAT DOES SUSTAINING PROGRAM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Sustaining program

A sustaining program is a radio or television program that, despite airing on a commercial broadcast station, does not have commercial sponsorship or advertising. This term, mostly used in the United States, was common in the early days of radio, but has become unfamiliar, due to the nearly universal use of commercial advertising on radio and television. Commercial radio stations began broadcasting in the early 1920s, but it would be over a decade before the concept of selling over-the-air advertising would catch on. Many radio stations were established by radio equipment manufacturers and retailers such as RCA and programming was provided to sell the still-patented radio transmitters and receivers. Programming was financed from the sale of the equipment. Other radio stations and programs were provided as a public service through endowments or municipal financing. Some early radio stations were owned and operated by newspaper publishers. Radio gave an added forum to express the opinions of the owners and resulted in increased newspaper sales. In effect, most early radio stations had only one sponsor, the company that owned the station.
