 CAB Pro-Bono Program  

The KNBA Community Advisory Board annually recommends up to 5 local organizations to be offered a pro-bono, pre-recorded, general service PSA message to run on-air on KNBA throughout a 6-8 month period. Messages air primarily in evening and overnight programming with no guarantee of frequency or specific placement. Messages are voiced by station staff or members of the CAB. Messages are pre-approved by the organization before airing. The CAB's process for selecting an organization is driven by KNBA’s mission and service to community. Organizations must be non-profit.

Basics for writing a Public Service Announcement

Who:  Name of Organization

What: Event/activity  name

When and location: Date/Time and Address

For More Information:  Web address or phone number, that the PUBLIC can contact
 

Message: The body of your PSA message should briefly incorporate the who, what, where and when, information. Include relevant contact information and phone numbers. Very Important, make sure you specify if your organization is a non-profit organization that serves the public. Listeners will likely connect first with the title of the event and date. Make sure they know where to go for more information and more of your whole story!
