“Evergreen PSAs” are pre-recorded non-changing and not for specific one-time events, but to promote non-profit organizations or groups, generally.
Q: “But I just want to advertise an even my group is holding!”
A: “Great! Then visit our event submission page (yes, that is free too).”
Only 1 free PSA (15 or 30 seconds long) may be produced by CJMP. Note that there are accompanying fees only if changes are ever required to the evergreen PSA. You can always ask that a PSA be removed, free of charge.
Community Engagement is a both a big part of Powell River Community Radio Society’s radio license, and also very much in line with our purposes and values.
