The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) is pleased to announce the release of the 2009 Congressional Public Service Announcement (PSA) program. For the past two decades this effort has alerted and informed families on important social and health issues in their communities.
Stations are encouraged to air these PSAs frequently to demonstrate your ongoing commitment to serving your local community. This is a great way to show policymakers the power and reach of local broadcasters. To view the participant(s) from your state, please click here.
To order a free dub of the participant(s) from your state, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (202) 429 5448.
Radio stations can download radio PSAs by state here:
If an opponent to the member featured on this PSA re-nomination qualifies to be on the 2010 ballot, stations should consult with legal counsel about further airing of the PSAs since opposing candidates would have equal opportunities rights. (Note: opposing candidates at this stage do not include candidates for another party's nomination.) To ensure complaince with Federal Election Laws, do not air these PSAs after November 30, 2009.
Once the member featured in this PSA qualifies to be on the 2010 ballot for his or her party primary or caucus, stations must note in the Political File every time this PSA is aired. Those notations should be placed in the file as soon as possible, preferably the same day the PSA airs. If you have any questions, you can contact your station counsel or the NAB Legal Department at 866-682-0276.
