I am sure "BROADCAST" is singular

I believe politics is singular as well... politics, physics, aerobics etc... all singular

This made me smile! It's singular as a noun, but plural as a verb.

The safest, surest way to figure this out is to try plugging it into a very simple sentence and using your ear. (If your spoken English is very weak, this might not work, but it should work for the majority of students.)
