RadioFacts: Greetings from us in our remote offices to you in what is likely your remote office. The following is both a statement and an invitation to stations to help themselves out if they are in a bind due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Please feel free to share along with the attached graphic.
All of us at United Stations are doing what we can to both preserve the health of our staff and clients and to maintain the most normal broadcast schedule possible during these trying times. And because know that there may be challenges for radio stations everywhere, we would like to let everyone know of our following plans…
– for stations needing a daypart covered we will allow our downloadable daypart shifts to be used temporarily without any commercial commitment by any radio station where there is not a current conflict in the market. Those shifts include Sandy McIlree’s “The Sandy Show” which can cover mornings in any 25+ format as well as other time slots, The Jackson Blue Show which is a great daypart for CHR, Rhythmic CHR or Hot AC stations and “Life with Lindsay” for most dayparts in the Country format.
– for stations in need of imaging production due to short staffing, we will allow access to our incredible Phantom Producer service temporarily without any commercial commitment by any radio station where there is not a current conflict in the market.
– for stations in need of Prep content, we will temporarily allow access to our services from Pulse Content, Nineball and Spark without any commercial commitment by any radio station where there is not a current conflict in the market.
We hope that our national self-quarantines end quickly and that staffing at radio stations return to normal swiftly as well. In the meantime we are happy that we are in a position to help solve the challenges happening in local markets.
For information on how to secure this assistance in your market please contact our regional United Stations affiliate rep or email us at [email protected].
