What is an Audio News Release?
An Audio News Release or ANR (sometimes called a Radio News Release or RNR), is a :30 or :60 second produced audio news or feature segment about your product, service, company or brand, that is distributed to radio stations, syndicated programs and networks. Audio News Releases can be produced and distributed as earned media or paid media. The most effective earned media ANRs are concise, focused messages with compelling news. Paid media opportunities can offer a stronger focus on branding and call-to-action, and come with a guarantee of placement. Focused on your needs and goals, we offer multiple services for writing, recording, producing and distributing your Audio News Release.
We Have Four Types of Audio News Releases (ANRS):
Guaranteed Placement Audio News Releases
Reach millions of listeners in hundreds of markets.
We write, record, produce and place your Audio News Release in our nationally syndicated programming. Your message airs unedited--exactly as you signed off on it. You can choose to place your message in a general news/public affairs environment or within a healthcare program environment. Either option provides complete control of your message, an opportunity for branding and a call to action.
Custom Feeds are our brand of Audio News Releases (ANRs) that are earned media. We can target the specific stations, markets, regions or demographics that are most appropriate for your message.
Custom Feeds are most effective and utilized when they contain news, survey results or expert content that educates the public in a non-branded, non-commercial way. We produce and distribute Custom Feeds to both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking audiences.
