Press Play for our new Radio PSA

We’re excited to introduce our new Radio PSA to Broaden Awareness of our Mission to Help Broadcasters in Need

The Broadcasters Foundation of America has produced a 30-second radio Public Service Announcement (PSA) as part of its outreach and awareness campaign, which launched earlier this spring. The Broadcasters Foundation of America provides financial assistance to broadcasters in acute need due to critical illness, accident, or other serious misfortune. The goal of the outreach campaign and the PSA is to ensure that broadcasters know about the Foundation’s mission of granting hope so that those in need can apply for aid.

“It is unacceptable that a broadcaster in need may not know that the Broadcasters Foundation is here to provide assistance,” asserted Jim Thompson, President of the Broadcasters Foundation of America. “We are reaching out aggressively, across every avenue, to get our message of granting hope heard.”

In addition to the PSA, the Broadcasters Foundation is working with networks, broadcast groups, the trade press, state associations, and more to get out its message. Radio stations interested in airing the PSA may download it from the website at, or contact the Foundation 212-373-8250 or
