If you want an announcement read on “The Panthers’ Roar” Morning Show send the announcement in the form of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: “Why do I have to send it here? Why can’t I send it to Brian Wilson?”
A: Because students produce the show, and they do not check our email.

Include phonetic spelling for hard to pronounce names, otherwise they will be read incorrectly. Don’t send an announcement about how your athlete won this or that only for us to mispronounce their name.
Email your announcement to email@example.com so that we can read it easily and make adjustments to the copy. We do not accept paper submissions.
As you know, we air live Monday-Friday, so please get your announcements in as soon as possible. The news business is all about being under pressure and meeting deadlines, even though I want my students to have this experience I do not want this to become a routine.
