  • Oncor Advanced Meters have been upgraded in our area to respond to outages before customers have to contact them.

  • Are you considering quitting smoking?  You aren't alone!  Here is a great resource you might find handy.

  • 11 year old Lacey Parker is raising money to go with her choir on a singing tour to Canada and New York this summer, She is asking for donations in any amount as she needs to raise 1,800 dollars. Also her Dad is known for his amazing abilities in the kitchen and is making fresh apple pies or double layer chocolate cake with real butter cream frosting for 15 dollars each. We are not talking about a box mix either, everything is made from scratch!

    Give Lacey's Dad a call at 214-853-1402 anytime in the next 30 days and order your desert for dinner or order several for your next dinner party or church potluck. Call up and order your cake at 401 Ross St., Waxahachie, TX. This offer will end by April 30th

    Special orders are also welcome, such as, gluten free, sugar free, or perhaps a different desert all together.


    Again that number is Dan Parker 214-853-1402

PSA Policy: Submission Guidelines & Contact Info

 

KBEC gladly accepts Public Service Announcements (PSAs) from state-registered, not-for-profit corporations (501-C) in standard format for on-air delivery. The Texas Secretary of State office, (512) 463-5555 , provides information on registering.

Copy - The most effective announcements are always straightforward: Event description, date, location, and phone number for information. KBEC reserves the right to edit all copy.

Format - Please follow the Checklist below. Due to the number of submissions, PSAs submitted in a press release format can no longer be considered.

KBEC is delighted to partner with our community to help publicize local events, but air time is limited, and we cannot guarantee that all PSAs will be broadcast. We also encourage you to submit your event to our online Community calendar.

Checklist

Follow the prescribed layout exactly and double-check every detail on the checklist below. PSAs that do not meet these requirements will not be considered for broadcast.

Complete Sentences - Write only in complete sentences.

Contact Information - A phone number or website is required. End your copy with: “the number (or website) for information is …” Or, “the number (or website) for tickets is … ”

Timing - Time the copy by reading aloud, slowly, to 20 seconds maximum.

Schedule Date - Provide a clear end date for the PSA (date of the event) on the form.

Prices - If the event is free, please mention this. If it is not free, do not list ticket prices. If the event is a benefit or involves donations, just describe the event — do not refer to donations, auctions, or benefits, etc.

Cultural Events - For arts events, always include program highlights (composers or works, for example). Our audience is well-read; attract them with your intriguing program, not with commercial language.

Non-Commercial Tone - Do not use call-to-action verb phrases (example: do not use the word “call..,” or phrases such as, “join us for…,” “come celebrate…,” “visit…,” or “you’re invited to…”). We appreciate your help maintaining our distinctive, non-commercial delivery, valued highly by our listeners.

Language – KBEC does not air PSAs with comparative language (“Ellis Counties finest…performs”), as there are many exceptional groups in similar fields in our listening area.

 

Please submit all requests via E-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Make sure to include in the subject line of the E-mail the event name and date.
