How can WSSB help your organization?
WSSB recognizes the need to provide local non-profit groups with a means to publicize themselves and their activities. To do this, WSSB broadcasts Public Service Announcements (PSAs) throughout the day.
Which organizations does WSSB publicize?
WSSB receives as many as 100 requests every week for publicity on the station. Because of that, WSSB must give priority to some requests over others. Basically, WSSB emphasizes the activities of local non-profit organizations that provide important services on SC State University campus, in the Orangeburg and surrounding communities, as well as, in the state of South Carolina. Those may also include the activities of local chapters of national organizations (such as the American Red Cross), as well as the non-religious activities of church-sponsored organizations (such as the Episcopal Services Alliance and Second Harvest). Please note that requests for PSAs must come directly from non-profit organizations. We do not accept requests from "for-profit" businesses, even if they are holding fund raisers for a non-profit.
How early should the announcement be sent to WSSB?
The sooner, the better!! We suggest that you send us your announcement about 3 weeks before an event. The absolute minimum is 1 weeks. If your announcement involves on-going activities, you should send a new announcement every 4 weeks.
What should an announcement include?
You should tell us the name of your group (and if it's not obvious, what it does for the community), the time and date of your event, its location, and a phone number or web address that people can access for more information. You can increase your chances of having an announcement aired if it is already written in a short, simple narrative style that takes no more than about 15-20 seconds to read.
