Tips for writing a PSA that will have the best chance to be read on air:

Give us a heads up!

Please submit your information at least two weeks in advance. The earlier you let us know, the longer it can play on the air!

Keep it short! 

The entire announcement should be four to six sentences long, about 60-100 words total.

Provide Pronunciation (pro-NUN-see-A-shun)

Provide pronunciation of difficult words and names.

State Facts ONLY

PSAs can only contain value-neutral wording. Words such as "best," "interesting", "fun," "entertaining," and "high quality" are all opinion, not statements of fact.

Don't include "Calls to Action"

As a non-commercial radio station, KBVR cannot directly command or urge listeners to carry out an action. Instead of "come on down," "stop by," or "check out," try "you are invited to..." or other neutral wording.



The physical address of the event.
If you have a tagline or catchy opener for the event, add it here.

Name of the person the public can contact for more information.
Contact information (if different from above) in case the radio station needs to contact you.
Any additional notes you have for KBVR that will NOT be announced.
This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions.
