Public Service Announcements

PSAs, written on 45 rpm record

Any community non-profit group or Montana State University student organization may submit short Public Service Announcements (PSAs) that, once approved, are read on-air.

Message copy

Effective PSA messages are simple and concise:

  • Event or service description
  • Date and time
  • Location

FCC regulations and station policy disallow advertising-type language and calls to action, i.e., a statement or phrase which directs a person to act.

Example: Allowed
