Radio Announcements

Helpful Hints

  • Identify several students to record the radio spot.
  • Contact your local country radio station to secure slots.
  • WVDE research shows that more West Virginians tune into county radio stations than any other format.
  • Ideally, the radio station will agree to rotate the spots for free as a public service announcement.
  • You also may want to tap into your community/business partners and ask that they sponsor the radio advertisements.
  • For guidance on specifications and expected pricing, contact Liza Cordeiro, executive director, WVDE Communication Office (lcordeir@access.k12.wv.us / 304-558-2699)
