Public Service Announcement Day

CCTV Produces Affordable Public Service Announcements for Local Non-Profits

Do you want to change the way people think about an issue? Do you want to educate the Cambridge audience about your organization's work? Each year, CCTV's Public Service Announcement (PSA) Day gives local non-profit organizations a chance to create informative PSAs that communicate the services they provide to the community.

PSAs are shown on CCTV's three cable channels, and have the potential of reaching more than 33,000 households! In addition, PSAs can be submitted to other television stations, uploaded to your organization's website, or used for any other public relations projects.

Register for PSA Day!

This year, PSA Day is scheduled for Thursday, May 12, 2016. If your organization is interested in producing a PSA, please contact Clodagh Drummey at or 617 401 4005 to schedule a 30-minute taping appointment on May 12.

The registration fee is $75 for non-CCTV members. A discounted rate of $50 is available to organizations that are CCTV members. Read about the benefits of Organizational Membership here. To become an organizational member, please complete this form.

After the recording appointment, CCTV staff will work on post-production for all PSAs and deliver high definition, broadcast quality copies of your new PSA. We can feature your organization's logo and up to 3 photos in the PSA.

Do You Need Help Preparing your PSA?

This year we will offer a free one-hour workshop to provide organizations participating in PSA Day with tips about how to develop an effective PSA on April 28 from 10 am to 11 am. We recommend that each participating organization attend one session. Organizations can register for a session when scheduling their PSA Day recording appointment.
