Announcements at WOBC
Through reporting current Events, making PSAs, and other Announcements, WOBC hopes to make our resources accessible to the greater Oberlin community and to bring new ideas and new faces into the radio station.
Current Events, drawn from our calendar, are available to DJs every day we have something to report.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires that WOBC air at least two Public Service Announcements (PSAs) every hour, which they define as “any announcement (including network) for which no charge is made and which promotes programs, activities, or services of federal, state, or local governments…or the programs, activities or services of non-profit organizations…and other announcements regarded as serving community interests, excluding time signals, routine weather announcements and promotional announcements.”
Other Announcements are displayed and aired at the discression of the WOBC officers.
At WOBC, we work creatively to disseminate information that is current and relevant to the communities that comprise WOBC’s diverse listenership in Lorain County and beyond. As a freeform college and community radio station, we embrace a wide range of ideas regarding what falls under “serving community interests.”
We welcome submissions and participation from everyone – community and student organizations as well as individuals.
