Broadcasters

  • Comprehensive insurance solutions for a complex industry—intensely competitive, highly regulated, and quickly evolving, broadcasters live in a world of wide-ranging risk. For more than two decades, Chubb has been helping them stay on the air.

Industry Highlights

Consider the financial impact on your organization if:

  • As an owner or operator of broadcasting and communications equipment, you face risk from damaged or lost equipment and the losses that can stem from that downtime.
  • A fire destroys an antenna and interrupts your broadcast.
  • An individual sues you for copyright infringement, alleging that your organization included her copyright-protected work in an advertising campaign.
  • A news broadcast inadvertently includes personal information about someone, who then sues you for invasion of privacy.

With 25 year's experience insuring the broadcast and cable industry, Chubb offers a wide spectrum of state-of-the-art insurance solutions tailored to your unique risks. Maybe that’s why Chubb is endorsed by the Media Financial Management Association (MFM) as the preferred commercial insurer for its members.
