How to Get Your Public Service Announcements On The Air

kala on the air

KALA (FM) makes every effort we can to keep our community up to date with information about area events. Public service announcements (PSA's) are read over the air live at no cost to non-profit organizations. There is no guarantee as to how many times your community event will be announced, but this is a FREE service.

Public service announcements MUST be sent to KALA at least 2 (two) weeks in advance of the event date. All announcements need to be typed or neatly printed. We need to know the WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE and WHY of the non-profit event. A contact name, phone number or e-mail address is appreciated, in case we have questions about your announcement.

IF YOUR ANNOUNCEMENT IS INTENDED FOR THE SPANISH/HISPANIC FORMAT, we require that to be in the Spanish language because we do not have staff available to translate those messages.

Please do not call in announcements to the KALA office or request line. For legal purposes, we cannot take information over the telephone. Also, due to the busy nature in the studio and various activities during a "live" radio show, the KALA request line is restricted to music requests ONLY and not to be used for station business.

KALA cannot accept public service announcements from a third party source. Announcements should be from a bona fide non-profit organization, church, or community group. KALA (FM) is prohibited from accepting political advertising because we are a non-commercial radio station. Pre-recorded and scheduled announcements from legitimate non-profit organizations can be arranged. Contact the KALA Office for more details, at (563) 333-6219.

Any announcement that reaches us late or does not meet our requirements CANNOT be considered for broadcast. A 24-hour KALA public service announcement information help line has been established at (563) 333-6450. Messages can be left there should you have further questions.
