PSA On-Air Guidelines
Our Public Service Announcements (PSAs) are part of our mission to serve listeners and the community. All announcements must be applicable to the general public within the geographic area served by one of our stations. Submissions may only be made on behalf of not-for-profit organizations or nonprofit agencies, and should be written in a neutral language (no 'amazing' or 'best' language—please use already-posted announcements as examples).
All submissions will be reviewed by staff before appearing on the site. The station reserves the right to edit or reject submissions. Events or information related to candidates for office or political organizations will not be listed. The station does not check the details of the event, and does not take responsibility for inaccurate information. Please proofread before pressing 'Approve.'
- Only not-for-profit Presenting Organizations are eligible for Public Service Announcements.
- On-air announcements will be chosen from events entered at least three weeks prior to the event (four-six weeks is best).
- Include your contact information. Fill out all information required as completely as possible.
Listings with incomplete information are less likely to be posted. Should your event be canceled or pertinent information change, please submit a change request so that we may correct the entry. Always include contact information.
Staff will select from submissions entered at least three weeks prior to the event to be announced on-air. Inclusion cannot be guaranteed, and announcements do not air during Capital Public Radio on-air membership campaigns. Guaranteed schedules are only available through the purchase of underwriting time or a community partnership agreement.
Please contact the station if you notice inaccurate information in event listings.
