-Need to put an announcement on the air or online? Click here to find out how to do it. If you are with a group or organization please remember to designate one person to be the spokesperson to communicate agreed upon information for broadcast and on-line. We have had many instances where incorrect information has been announced due to many people calling with conflicting information.

Send a message for the WIRELESS to: wireless@kiyu.com

 

We ask that when you send announcements for the Yukon Wireless that you write the information in the body of the e-mail. You can send us a flier, which we can attach to the announcement. But we would rather you write out the who, what, when, where, etc of your announcement. Note that we may adjust your announcement for broadcast purposes. Also, please do not send your important announcements via Facebook.  Instead, e-mail it to wireless@kiyu.com to make sure we see them.

 

Many people still fax. While we accept faxes, we would prefer e-mail at wireless@kiyu.com as it allows us to have a better record of sender information and it makes transferring the information easier for our editors. If you do fax, you may want to call our office to make sure we received it.

 

-Here are the deadlines** for announcements on the air and on-line (this includes birthday announcements)

Monday-Friday

-Deadline is one hour prior to the 7:18am, 11:45am and 6:30pm wireless broadcasts.

Saturday and Sunday

-Deadline is Friday at 5:30pm

**exceptions are city/village emergencies or information of major community importance as well as search and rescue information. These announcements will be announced as we get them.

Classified and lost and found announcements air for two weeks for paid supporters of KIYU and one week for non-supporters.  Event announcements air through date of event.
