Applying for a Program
The process by which a program goes from concept to the air is described in the KFAI Programmer Handbook. A key step is to complete a program abstract (application) and submit the abstract and a demo for your program to the Program Director. The Sample Program Abstract (Word file download)  has tips for filling out the application; contact the KFAI Program Director if you have questions not answered in the abstract form.
