PSA

Reminder on PSA Guidelines

As KZSC’s Public Service Announcement Director I receive piles of emails every day. Just like tofu, the easier your submission is to digest, the faster you’ll hear it on the air. Here are some of the basic points when sending notices:

General newsletters about your organization more often than not just get deleted. Since we want to represent you/your org in the best way possible, a specific announcement or event is much more likely to receive attention. Announcements can’t contain price information. Instead of including prices, please add some contact information you won’t mind sharing with the public. This way people can find out pricing, driving directions, etc. directly from you. What we refer to as “calls to action” – phrases like, “come on down!” or “get it while it’s hot!” (even if it is hot) will not be included in your PSA. And last but most obvious, the sooner you send your announcement, the more air time it could get! If you submit t a PSA less than two weeks before your event, it may not even be broadcast at all. What did mom always say about planning ahead? I love helping spread the word about the wide range of  events and activities in our community, so help me help you make your announcement stand out. If you have any questions, email me at: psa@kzsc.org.

UCSC Student Open House @ KZSC

KZSC has space for new UCSC student volunteers. No experience is needed (we provide the training), so if you’re a UCSC Student with a passion for music, sports, talk radio and/or pizza, then a KZSC’s Student Open House Event is the place for you. Find out how you can host your own radio show and eat pizza while it lasts. We’ll have student DJ’s and staff on hand to give tours and answer all your questions. Academic credit is available as part of your training.  The UCSC Student Open House Events at KZSC take place at 7 pm on October 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Follow the signs near Crown College. For more information, email KZSC’s student Volunteer Coordinator at: volunteer@kzsc.org. If you are a Slug Freshman, you have a special invitation to join The Great 88!
