Community Service Announcements on Juice1073
As a station committed to supporting the great things that happen each week in our local community, Juice1073 donates a significant amount of airtime to Community Service Announcements or CSA's. The announcements are a great opportunity for you to get your message out to the Gold Coast community and Juice listenership
Does my Event or Organisation Qualify for CSA's on Juice1073
Your community event or organisation may be considered for CSA airtime if
1) it is operated on a non-profit basis
2) it is of relevance to a significant portion of Juice1073 listeners
3) it complies with relevant community radio guidelines, and Juice1073's broadcasting guidelines
How do I apply for CSA airtime
To submit your announcement for consideration, please complete the application form above
When Should I Submit my Application for CSA airtime
It is always best to get your application in as early as possible, and no less than 3 weeks before you want your announcement to go to air. We receive a high volume of requests for CSA airtime, so getting your application in early will ensure that your announcement is considered before the available space is fully booked
What Happens Once I've Submitted This Form
If your CSA application is approved, you will receive an email or phone call from our team to confirm details.
While we aim to provide as much support as possible, it is important to note that we cannot guarantee approval or availability of airtime - particularly in periods of high demand for CSA airtime. We WILL review your submission though, and we WILL contact you if your application is approved.
What options are there for my CSA if it's approved
The two types of CSA's we provide are either Live Reads (our announcers incorporating promotion for your event into their live breaks on-air), or pre-recorded 30 second announcements
While Live Reads can be a great option for some events, generally you are more likely to get more airtime with a pre-recorded 30 second announcement.
Generally, we will use the information you have submitted in your application to create a Live Read CSA
In the case of a pre-recorded announcement, you may opt to
a) provide your own pre-produced 30sec announcement that we will assess for suitability (must be broadcast quality and we reserve the right not to broadcast if not deemed suitable); OR
b) request Juice1073 to produce a 30sec announcement for you. There is a charge for this to cover the costs incurred for professional scripting, voicing and production, but your announcement will be automatically approved for airplay and we will provide you with a copy to use as you wish. (This charge is currently approx $120)
How Much Airtime Will My CSA Receive
This will vary depending on the current level of demand for CSA airtime, and the amount of other programming content that we have committed to run over the period of your campaign. If you require guaranteed airtime and exposure for your event to succeed, we suggest considering a Sponsorship package - click here for more information.
