Please fill out the form below and click “Submit” to submit your event to the KPTZ On-Air Community Calendar. Each weekday at 8:00 am, noon, and 5:00 pm (6:00 pm on Fridays), KPTZ reads a list of the day’s events. It is our hope that everyone in our listening area that has an event to share will submit their listing no sooner than two weeks ahead. Right now we do not have a community calendar on the weekends, but we do highlight weekend events on Friday.
Calendar Submission Guidelines
We do not read press releases or lengthy announcements. All submission must be edited with a short description of the event, date and time of the event and contact information for our listeners who seek more information.
We endeavor to keep the total calendar time to five minutes so some days we may fill the time with names and descriptions, while on busy and full days we cut things down. We try to include everyone, however the purpose of our community calendar is to promote community activities for family and fun, educational community events, and community entertainment venues. The community calendar is not for ongoing advertisement of events. For ongoing promotions, please see our underwriting section for more information.
A calendar listing is different from a Public Service Announcement. A PSA can only come from a non-profit and may be read ahead of time to alert people to an event that is coming up. PSAs can also be more general; see the PSA policies for further clarification.
KPTZ hopes that this community service will assist you in getting the word out.
