EXERCISE YOUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT THROUGH RADIO ADS!
We strongly encourage all Wyoming citizens to get the word out on any pressing issues
by creating their own radio ads! If you have never run your own radio ads before,
have no fear - it is quite easy and not as expensive as you might think! Just follow
the instructions below…
1) Contact your local radio station to check on prices. Above is a list of all
of the radio stations found in the state with their phone numbers provided. Call
and ask what the cost is for running 30 or 60 second ads. (30 second ads can run
as low as $9 an add). Be sure to ask their advice on the best times of day to run
your ad. For example, you may want people to hear your ad while they’re driving
to or from work. The time of day you run your ads may make the cost go up or down.
You may also want to consider what days you will run your ads between now and November
6 (Election day).
2) Decide if you want to use your voice or one of the announcers at the station.
If you want to use your own voice, you can either record at the station or you might
be able to simply record your ad at home on an MP3 player and email it them!
3) Writing the script: Write down your personal message regarding the issue your
are addressing. Then read your script out loud while timing yourself. If it is too
long or too short for your allotted time - tweak it until your happy with it.
4) Email your script or MP3 recording, or drive down to the station and get your
ads ordered! Once your ads are done the station will likely email you a copy for
your final approval before they begin running them on the air.
We guarantee you will have fun with this!
It is an awesome, fun and most effective way to practice your First Amendment Right!
