Well, today was a whirlwind. I almost accidentily and on the spot... set up a radio staion as a sponsor for a show I have coming up.

Now I have to provide them with 30 seconds of copy for them to run as a PSA.

So, my questions is to anyone with any experience with wrighting copy for radio. I basically know what to say, who, what, where, when, why, and how...
but what type of format do I put it in?

Just a word doc?
paragraph form?
double spaced?


Any help here would be great!

thanks

Thanks Comedy Writer.

I pretty much knew what to do, but was freaking out a bit about the fact that I needed it done in like an hour. Completed and submitted to my contact at the station already!

thanks again

Sweet!

Just got the official word from the station.... they will be airing my commercial 95 times in the 19 days leading up to the show!

Not bad for a last minute deal.

Not bad at all there Scott. let us know how that goes for you. Did you hand them your ad copy or are you still in need for some help or advice?
