We're a community resource. You're the community!
WORT has been a vector of communication between the individual and the community since its inception, so whatever you need to say, we have a tool or process to help you speak up. We have different tools for different entities, depending on whether you are an individual, a performer, a business or a fellow non-profit. Here are a few ideas for no-cost ways that WORT can help you get the word out about your organization and events.
Requires in most cases 4-8 weeks advance planning. Events in the community that are in line with WORT’s mission may be eligible for promotional exchanges. In a typical promotional exchange, WORT airs a pre-recorded announcement of the event about 20 times in the week or two leading up to the event. In exchange, WORT’s logo is included on all posters and tickets for the event; a WORT banner is displayed at the event; WORT is provided a table or space to distribute station materials; and WORT’s promotion of the event is announced and thanked at the event. In some cases, WORT may also be offered space for an ad in a program booklet. WORT also receives several free pairs of tickets to the event, typically five pairs for on-air giveaway and three pairs for station staff and volunteers. Please remember that you must plan ahead to include the WORT logo on promotional materials. Logos are available in a variety of formats: epst. .jpg, .tiff. If you are interested in a promotional exchange for a music event, contact the WORT Music Director.
If you feel your music could be featured best on a particular music show (see complete list by genre here), either through an interview or a live performance, contact WORT’s Music Director.
Send us your music! We are particularly interested in lesser-known and local bands.

Weekdays at 5AM, 6:30AM, 9AM and 2PM. The Insurgent Radio Kiosk is a five minute segment aired four times a day that includes a two-minute commentary, a fun fact .Today-in-history., and a calendar of free and low-cost community events. Event announcements are generally run on the day of the event or on Friday for the Weekend Action Calendar. For on-going announcements or events requiring pre-registration, send in the announcement well in advance of your deadline and ask the Kiosk producers to include this item as often as time allows.
How To Submit Kiosk Announcements
Prepare a two- or three-sentence description with all of the essential details.name of sponsoring organization, time, place, contact person, phone number, and ticket cost, if any. (Prices will not be mentioned; however, to be included, the cost must be under $20.) Since the Kiosk has only one minute for announcements each day, it is not always possible to include every announcement that is submitted. Announcements are included in the Kiosk at the discretion of the volunteer producer. We ask that you send announcements in at least ten days in advance!
