”We’ve Got the Internet on Fire!.”
One Broadcast Hour is 55 minutes = 1 time slot. If you broadcast more than one hour, in a row, only the last hour needs to be cut down to 55 minutes. The live engineer requires this final 5 minutes to kick one program off the air and get the next program started, all within that narrow window. Programs air daily, weekly or biweekly. Some programs air several times per week. We can accommodate almost everything but do not do monthly scheduled broadcasts. Many broadcasters now use our system solely to globally syndicate their productions as “on demand” podcasts. Our system is profound and can deliver you to the world, effectively. You can do this as a broadcaster or as a podcaster.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE AND THINGS TO KNOW
Before you begin you MUST read our on air Broadcast Policy. There’s a basic Broadcasters contracts to sign, and you pay as you go. Cancel anytime you want with no strings attached.

HOW TO GET STARTED AND WHAT TO SEND
Pick a SHOW NAME! Choose the day and time that you would like to broadcast your show live on one of our two stations. Each station has available times where you broadcast a daily, weekly or biweekly show. These open times can be found by viewing Available Time Slots 1or Available Time Slots 2.
Submit your full name and your contact information (Address, cell-phone, telephone numbers, computer soft-phone usernames “skype or hangout”, email address, and website URLs, if any).
Submit a Photo of your self and/or your co-host(s) Note: You do not need to use your own photo(s) if you wish to remain anonymous.
Submit a 35 to 50 word “catchy” description of your program, to entice readers to become listeners. This is what we call an “Attention Grabber”. This information is used on our website during your live broadcasting hours.
Submit any biography text and program information you wish to have on your interactive profile program page.
Submit any music files that you want to use during your program, as well promos to open and/or close your program, and any commercials or show sponsorship advertisements you wish to play during your show program breaks, if you have any.
Schedule a time to do a professional walk though with an audio engineer. This is where we’ll test your sound quality and the audio dynamics between the various hosts. Further, the board operator can get to know how you like your productions engineered. Many times just a few minor tweeks to your software settings can make all the difference in the world to audio quality and clarity.
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT PAYMENTS & SCHEDULING
Payment is due on the day of each broadcast, or before. We accept all forms of payment and will usually automate this process through our merchant account. You can cancel your show at anytime. Further, you can change your time slot, change your broadcasting frequency or even change whether you’re broadcasting live on a talk radio schedule or only globally syndicating your podcasts. Our system allows you a lot of flexibility! You’ll come to love that about this network.
If you miss a program, or we cannot reach you during your scheduled broadcast, we will air a podcast from your archives (a rerun from a prior broadcast). You will only pay the broadcast fee when you do not need the live engineer! These reduced rates apply when airing podcasts, broadcasting delivered productions and/or syndicating programming via live streams.
If you ever have any questions, please give us a call! We are in during studio hours only, when scheduled broadcasts are airing.
