GUIDELINES FOR PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS ON WGRC-FM
At WGRC, we will gladly list events for FREE for non-profit organizations such as community organizations, ministries, schools and churches. We strive to treat each submitted announcement as being special, but there are situations when announcements fail to get on the air. To have your event listed on the WGRC Event Calendar please follow these guidelines when submitting your announcement:
• All PSAs must be received by WGRC at least three weeks before the event date or registration deadline.
• Include who, what, when, where, and include a contact number with AREA CODE.
• Check for spelling errors and irregular capitalization (including all “CAPS”) to avoid delays.
• If the event is a fundraiser, please indicate specifically who the proceeds will benefit.
• WGRC reserves the right to refrain from promoting events/activities which may not be consistent with our Christian format. WGRC will only air bingo and Chinese auction events if 100% of the proceeds directly benefit a non-profit charity/organization. (Note: This must be clearly stated within the information submitted to WGRC.)
•If there are names in the announcement that could easily be mispronounced, please provide some type of phonetic spelling to help us.
– At this time we cannot list regular service times for churches; however special one-time church events are welcome.
– We are unable to air announcements on WGRC for fundraisers at commercial businesses, such as restaurants, that involve an invitation to purchase services at the business. The online calendar is available for these events.
– WGRC will consider using pre-produced announcements although they may be edited for content and/or time restraints.
Events must be submitted online via our submission form: CLICK HERE.
WGRC reserves the right to reject any announcement that does not meet the outlined criteria.
