NAB Public Service creates awareness of the unique impact that radio and television broadcasters have in their local communities. NAB Public Service also works with a variety of nonprofit partners to facilitate the distribution of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) that share important information with viewers and listeners across America.
Radio and television stations serve local communities every day by disseminating lifeline emergency information; supporting our military; raising funds for local causes, including children’s hospitals and cancer research; collecting food, clothing and toys for neighbors in need; devoting free air time to political campaign coverage and promoting education and healthy lifestyles.
NAB hosts the bi-annual Congressional Public Service Announcement (PSA) Campaign, through which the association invites all members of Congress, their spouses and family members to share positive messages with their constituents. NAB develops, produces, films and distributes these PSAs to television and radio stations across the country.
In 2015, a record 307 members of Congress and their family members from 49 states and three U.S. territories participated in the program. The 550 radio and television PSAs were broadcast in hundreds of local communities.
NAB Spot Center offers free, downloadable broadcast-quality radio and television PSAs addressing issues of national concern from a variety of non-profit organizations.
NAB Public Service invites nonprofit organizations and other public service partners to join us at the Public Service booth at NAB Show and the Radio Show. Participating in the Public Service booth at events is a great opportunity to meet broadcasters and distribute PSAs.
