Examples of Announcements
There are two types of announcements, 7-second rotational spots and 20-second fixed-position spots:
(1) Rotational Spots
Rotational Spots allow a business to reach a highly desirable audience with a message about the company. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates the language in all on-air messages. Rotational Spots are limited to seven (7) seconds. A well-crafted message will increase top-of-mind awareness of your business and further enhance the image of your business with a very desirable and relevant audience.
(2) Fixed-Position Spots
Fixed Position Spots are twenty (20) seconds in length and can be used to promote an upcoming special event or to increase awareness of an organization's mission.
How much does it cost?
Rotational and Fixed Position Spots are surprisingly affordable, and discounted rates are offered to eligible non-profit organizations. Please email or call us at (800) 275-0764 for current rates.
