Submitting a PSA?
Non profit events and fundraiser can be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not air events for free that are paying for advertising on any other media outlet (newspaper, radio, television, etc.) PSA's are posted on this page, and given random live mentions on one or more of our 5 Albany radio stations. We cannot guarantee when or if your event will be mentioned, as it is subject to time availability and on-air host discretion. PSA's should be submitted no less than 2 weeks prior to an event. Please do not send only a flier or simply a link to a page where we can "find" the information for your event. Submit a short paragraph describing the Who, What, When, Why, How much, and most importantly, what the profits will benefit.
