Public Service Announcements

WSOE 89.3 FM is a noncommercial radio station serving the Elon University campus and Elon-Burlington community. WSOE provides free on-air Public Service Announcements (PSAs) to campus organizations, community non-profits, and governmental agencies. 


PSAs are accepted for both general informational announcements and for one-time or short-run events. Event PSAs should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the event.


WSOE will consider each request on a case-by-case basis and reserves the right to select, edit, and terminate any announcements at any time, for any reason. Organizations requesting a specific broadcasting schedule should consider supporting WSOE by purchasing  an underwriting package through our promotions department.

PSAs that share non-partisan political information may be accepted, but any endorsements of  specific politicians or political parties will not.


Events organized by religious groups for the purpose of promoting their beliefs will not be accepted.


Event or services of non-profit organizations only. No commercial or other for-profit organizations will be accepted.
