Public Service Announcements


What you should know about PSAs on KNAU:

  • Public service announcements must be submitted by non-profit organizations.
  • PSAs are roughly 20 seconds of written copy (approx 40-50 words). 
  • Information sent three to seven days before the event has less of a chance of making it on-air due to a constant influx of announcement requests sent to KNAU.
  • Normally KNAU will not announce monthly meetings, events for profit- making businesses, or events that may only affect a very small portion of the community. PSAs are broadcast at the discretion of KNAU management.

What you should include in your PSA:

  • Name of the event and a name of the non-profit organization sponsoring or setting up the event
  • Location and address of the event
  • Date and time of the event and, if needed, an itinerary for the activities
  • Day/days the event will take place
  • A description of the event
  • Ticket price and purchase/reservation deadline, if applicable
  • Contact phone number or website for more information
  • Phonetic pronunciation of names if needed
  • A courtesy call or e-mail if the event is changed, canceled, sold out, extended or incorrect

Submit your PSA request by e-mail here with the words "PSA Request" in the subject line.  Thank you!
