Public Service Announcements

As part of our service to the community, WDAV reserves a limited amount of air time for public service announcements (PSA).  Because of the large number of requests we receive, priority is given to music and arts events.  But WDAV works hard to include a wide variety of organizations whose work and information is of interest to our community.  WDAV does not guarantee nor will it provide affidavits for the number of readings or times of day for PSA submissions.  Copy read will be brief, edited to conform to station and FCC restrictions for public radio announcements.  WDAV does not include organization phone numbers, but will instead encourage listeners to call WDAV for further information on PSA events.

You may submit your PSA by filling out the Submit An Event form on this Web site.   

PSA information is not taken over the telephone, via fax, regular mail, or email due to the large number of requests we receive and our limited staff resources to devote to the PSA program.

Events that do not qualify for WDAV's PSA program include: 
  • Events which are not open to the public.
  • Bake sales, barbecues, car washes and other similar types of fund raisers.
  • Weekly or monthly meetings.  Exceptions are made when a speaker or artist of significant note will be appearing.
  • Typically WDAV does not accept programming events from religious organizations, unless for concerts and lectures of general interest.
  • Recorded material.
  • Events hosted by for-profit companies.  PSA's are reserved for the sole use of non-profit organizations.

Information sent to WDAV must be received at least two weeks before your event. To be considered for broadcast, the following information must be included:

  •  Name of event and sponsoring organization
  • Date and Time the event will take place  (with multi-day events, plays, etc., please include individual dates and times)
  • Location of event  (include street address)
  • Description of event
  • Phonetic pronunciation of unusual names.
  • Ticket or admission costs
  • Contact name and telephone.
