Calendar of Events Policy
Priority for inclusion is at the discretion of the KRPS
Program Director. Pittsburg State University events, particularly visiting professional
classical music performers, are generally given priority. The Calendar is used to promote
predominantly classical music, jazz, theater, and art exhibits. Events are included based
on their appeal to the KRPS audience.
There is no guarantee of any specific event airing on the
Calendar for any day or time. The Calendar may be preempted without notice. Information
for submission to the Calendar may not be taken by phone. Information regarding tickets,
times, location, etc. must be mailed to KRPS. Items without such information may
not be included in the Calendar.
The only telephone number given over the air is KRPS'
number. KRPS staff has access to additional material about events should listeners
inquire. Events that are free will be made known, but no ticket prices will be given over
Calendar events which are subsequently cancelled may be
announced as such, as soon as KRPS is
notified by the same source as provided the initial information.
KRPS will not enter into correspondence about the content
of the Calendar or matters arising from events included or omitted from the
Public Service Announcement
We have fixed availabilities for PSA’s..
No requests will be taken in regards to specific times and KRPS cannot guarantee particular times or days.
KRPS will re-write provided copy to our on-air style.
All PSA’s are 30 seconds in length.
KRPS’ phone number will be used on air and we will refer interested callers to any number and
KRPS has the final decision on which PSA materials are aired based on the time slots available
and the nature of the event. Arts events will go on the Calendar of events.
We are particularly interested in events/programs that benefit people living in the Four
States area – they will have priority.
Information about events MUST reach KRPS in writing 2 weeks in advance of the event.
