A KPTZ show proposal requires the following three components:
- Submit a program demo or work sample on CD, in a .wav or MP3 format file. Samples do not need to be longer than 15 minutes.
- Produce your demo with the best equipment you can, preferably edited on a computer. Audacity is a free audio editing program available on the web. In the future we will have training sessions, editing and coaching to help you mold your work into broadcast-ready material.
- For live DJ work, submit recordings that are captured as “live” as possible and are not highly edited. The same applies for in-studio interviews. News and documentary will of course be highly edited.
- Please include our station ID every 10 to 15 minutes, “You’re listening to KPTZ 91.9 FM, Radio Port Townsend. I’m your host …” Provide a list of the music you are playing in your demo including artist, title, album and date. You can also have public service announcements.
B. Show Information
- Explain the show’s mission. Do you have a title in mind?
- Be as detailed as possible, explain your show’s content and provide a sample playlist of music/artists (20 minimum), the subject areas for discussion, news to be covered, or topics to be explored (10 minimum). Do you have access to enough material?
- Describe how your show will be relevant to the KPTZ community.
- Let us know if you envision this as a weekly, monthly, or occasional show. Will you be available for at least the next 12 months?
C. Contact Information
- Provide your name, address, day and evening phone numbers, email address and the names of other people involved in the show.
- Describe your background and any prior media experience (TV, radio or print) listing when and where you worked.
- Let us know if you, or any other members of your team are under 21 years of age.
