Public Service Announcement Guidelines

 

GUIDELINES FOR PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Newstalk 1310-AM, KNPT, 102.7 KYTE-FM, U92 FM (KNCU-FM)  96.7-FM, KCRF and AM 1400 KBCH & KWDP-AM 820 are pleased to run public service announcements about non-profit activities and events in Lincoln County and Tillamook County.

To help organizations and individuals wishing to submit public service announcements, we have developed the following guidelines:

1. The event or activity must be non-profit. If a profit-making business is involved, the proceeds must be benefiting a non-profit organization. However, we will not run free announcements for an event for which paid advertising has been purchased elsewhere.

2. The event or activity must be in Lincoln or Tillamook counties. Due to the volume of requests and limitations on air time, we cannot accept announcements for events outside our primary listening areas.

3. We prefer to receive announcements in writing. They may be mailed to us at Box 1430, Newport, Oregon 97365; dropped off at our office, 906 S.W. Alder, Newport; or they may be sent to our fax at (541) 265-6397.  You may also e-mail your announcements to

news@ybcradio.com

4. Due to the volume of items received, we generally run announcements one week prior to an event. If there's an advance sign-up deadline involved, the item would run for the week prior to that deadline. We will consider special circumstances if an item needs longer-term airing.

5. Please make sure your announcement includes all relevant information--dates, times, location, sponsoring organization, contact person with a phone number for more information, and enough detail to inform the public about the event.

6. We prefer announcements about 15 to 30 seconds in length. We reserve the right to edit all announcements for length and broadcast style.

7. Announcements are not read on a set schedule, but as the opportunity for the announcer permits, so we can’t guarantee a set time or total number of times an announcement will air. If you would like to assure your ad runs a specific number of times, please contact our sales department. We offer a matching number of free announcements when paid spots are purchased.

If you have any questions, please contact Kiera Morgan, news and public service director, weekday mornings at (541) 265-2266.
