Would you like to support KALA while getting your business/organization announced on the air at the same time?

If so, we have a couple of ways you can do just that!

As a non-commercial, educational FM radio station, KALA is prohibited by federal law from making promotional announcements for for-profit enterprises.

However, at the same time, we must notify our listeners of those enterprises who have supported programming on KALA.

In light of this, KALA has two ways you can have announcements about your business/organization made on KALA.

You Can Be A KALA Community Supporter

The first way is being a KALA Community Supporter, especially for non-profit organizations. Announcements can air for 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations in 30-second lengths (usually) scheduled to promote the organization, its activities, or a specific event. These types of announcements are commonly referred to as Public Service Announcements or PSAs.

You Can Be A KALA Booster

The second way is to join us as a KALA Booster. This would be the perfect opportunity for an individual, or for-profit business, to be acknowledged that they support the programming on KALA. This type of message would be considered an underwriting announcement and must follow strict Federal Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines. The content of this announcement is KALA’s responsibility, and this announcement is an acknowledgment and NOT a commercial. The announcement can give, according to FCC rules: name of a business, address, phone number, type of business, and value-neutral aural logograms of the supporter. Individuals can also be recognized with their name as a supporter of KALA programming.
