Your listeners have a heart to assist victims of the Oklahoma tornado. This is a moment when you can help deliver hope to our friends in Oklahoma through simple acts of kindness and generosity.
Chances are you’ve already been giving your listeners options to lend support. Many ministries and relief organizations are on-site helping those impacted most by Monday’s storm. Whether you conduct an on-air fundraiser or provide awareness opportunities for listeners to give, your station can be a rallying point of support.
You’ll also be providing an outlet for your listeners to get involved in partnership with your station and on-air staff. In moments like these it’s your chance to lead the way by engaging in a meaningful way with listeners. And we’re providing some helpful resources to assist in your efforts.
On Tuesday, the FCC announced that it would grant waivers to non-commercial media outlets to allow them to raise funds to aid in the recovery of the areas devastated by the massive tornado. Click here to get the waiver filing instructions.
