Public Service Announcements (PSA)

PSAs are unpaid broadcast announcements that benefit a registered 501(c)(3) organization by raising awareness about their event or services. KFAI is committed to contributing to the social wellness of the Twin Cities by sharing space with those working for the public good. Staff members review all PSA submissions, and KFAI reserves the right to edit or decline an offer. Submitting a request does not guarantee the announcement will be broadcast.

The Federal Communications Commission and the Internal Revenue Service have established strict guidelines for PSAs on all United States Radio Stations. These guidelines must be strictly adhered to. Please read the KFAI PSA Guidelines before contacting with your submission.
