FM Public Service Announcement Information
Guidlines for Public Service Announcements
What are Public Service Announcements (PSA)?
PSAs are short, "non-commercial" announcements prepared to provide information to the public. PSAs pubicize community events, provide health and safety timps, assist in nonprofit fund-raising efforts, and inform and influence public opinion.
When and how to submit your PSA
If possible, please submit your PSA no less than two weeks before your event. Events in the current month have priority over events in subsequent months.
You may submit PSAs to KBVR online or in person. To fill out the online form click on KBVR Public Service Announcement and hit submit at the bottom of the form. You may request a form by email or snail mail as well.KBVR FM Oregon State University 210 Memorial Union East Corvallis, OR 97331
Pre-recorded CDs containing the PSA are acceptable and encouraged. Be sure the CD is labeled with your name, telephone number, and the topic or headline of the PSA.
The PSA must represent one of the following:
- a charitable, non-profit organization
- an Oregon State University student or staff group, or a Corvallis, Philomath, or Albany school group
- a Corvallis, Philomath, or Albany community association or advocate group
- a commercial, for-profit organization only if promoting their non-profit activities and events
Is there a chance my PSA won't be used?
Yes. Even if your PSA meets the above guidelines, the only way to guarantee your announcement will be read is to submit it as a grant. For the cost of placing a grant, contact the KBVR Underwriting Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will use our own judgement regarding interest and concerns of the majority of KBVR listeners to select what PSAs will be announced inthe limited time available. We reserve the right to rewrite or edit PSAs before broadcast. We reserve the right to reject an PSA that, in our opinion, does not meet our guidelines, is not in good taste, is not appropriate to be broadcast to our audience, or might violate FCC rules governing non-commercial radio.
