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.
The Access Hour
Mondays 7-8PM. Each Monday a different community group or individual hosts the show. Assistance is provided both with recording a promotional announcement to be aired the week prior to the show and with sound board engineering the night of the show. In order to keep the show accessible, any individual or group is limited to one show per year. The Access Hour is often booked several months in advance.
Contact Ken Rineer at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the station at (608) 256-2001.
If you have a story idea or would like to come on to one of our shows, please send a BRIEF pitch via e-mail to the News Facilitator OR submit an anonymous tip.
Contact Molly Stentz at email@example.com or by calling the station at (608) 256-2001.

Insurgent Radio Kiosk Commentary
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
Prepare a commentary to highlight an issue and inform listeners how to get involved. Since WORT is licensed as a non-commercial station, we cannot air commentaries that promote for-profit businesses or commentaries that sound commercial. Practice reading the commentary so that it can be read in an unhurried manner in less than two minutes. To arrange for recording your commentary, contact the kiosk
