Sample radio scripts for public service announcements (PSAs)
- Hello, this is Wilbur Smythe, Chief of Police here in Carson City. I am shocked to learn that three
children die every day in our country because of child abuse. And most of these kids are under the age of
five. People who know tell me that child abuse is one problem that can be prevented. Call 888-8888 to find
out more about preventing child abuse here where we live. What will you do today that's more important?
- This is (Reverend, Father, Rabbi)John Elliott of (Church, Temple). My congregation will be observing
Child Abuse Prevention Month by offering special services during April. The theme is "Communities Rising to
the Challenge," and we invite you to join us as we explore ways to build healthy families. Preventing child
abuse is important to us, and we think it's vital to our community. Call 888-8888 for more information.
- This is Greg Caldwell. Yes, I'm the one who plays right field on the Red Sox team. Is my job tough? It
sure is. But the biggest challenge I face isn't on the diamond; it's at home being a dad to my four kids.
As a parent, I'll do anything to make our community a better place for parents and kids. That's why I'm a
volunteer. I invite you to call 888-8888 to find out how you can be part of a program that I believe makes
a difference right here in Madison. Call today.
- Think about it. What you say to your children can make a big difference in the way they feel about
themselves. It's called self-esteem and kids who have it generally become more successful than kids who don't.
Hearing words like "You're worthless" and "You're stupid" will not make kids feel good about themselves. But
you can make kids feel really good by saying, "You're special" and "Thanks for trying." Think about it.
- Hi, if you're a parent like me, I don't have to tell you how tough a job we have. Sometimes it's so
tempting to lash out and say things you don't mean. When the stress of being a parent feels overwhelming,
it's time to do something - like joining a parenting class or a support group. Yes it can make a difference
in the way you feel about your kids - and the way they feel about themselves.
