Submit a Public Service Announcement (PSA)
To submit a PSA, send a recording or copy to firstname.lastname@example.org after reading the guidelines below.
PSAs must be under 45 seconds. Thirty seconds is ideal. If you are writing copy for us to record, make sure we can read it in under 45 seconds.
We ask for at least three week’s notice of an event. (The longer notice the better.)
Please make sure your announcement includes all relevant information such as dates, times, locations, contact information with a phone number, website for more information, and enough detail to inform the public. End your copy recording with the phrase: “More information at…”
PSA recordings must adhere to our non-commercial regulations. These are outlined below.
1. Pricing information. We don’t mention prices. Ever. Words such as “free,” “sale,” “discount,” and other references to prices are not allowed. If an event is free you may say it's open to the public. Do not give out details, refer to the website.
2. Calls to Action. These are statements or phrases that command or invite someone to action. We can’t say: “Come to tonight’s performance!” or “Bring a friend!” Instead of telling someone to “Call 555-WGXC”, let them know that “More information is available at 555-WGXC.”
3. Qualitative / comparative language. We don’t use any embellishing language to describe events or information. WGXC is here to share information, not promote anything. Avoid words like: best, finest, only, etc. They will be edited out if you insist on including those terms.
Many organizations and individuals will pre-record their own PSAs. WGXC voice talent volunteers will also regularly record incoming copy for PSAs.
At the beginning of every program, WGXC’s on-air hosts choose a PSA to broadcast; all recordings will be available to them. PSAs are not guaranteed to be read on the air.
If you want to guarantee that your event is announced on the air, consider event underwriting. You can contact email@example.com for more information.
Visit our Events Page add click on the "Add an event" button to submit a community event or announcement to be read on air.
