What/when to write on Twitter:

  • On Twitter, you can ‘live-tweet’ your show with playlist info and guest information - be sure to add the handle @KBOO somewhere in the tweet (just not right at the beginning).
  • Tweet your upcoming show a day in advance, then an hour in advance of the show.
  • Send tweets with excerpts from your shows, not just the final product but quotes or topics you’re covering - tag any guests, musicians or other folks on the show. Also, once the audio is up on the KBOO website, post a link to it!
  • Post photos of you (or your guest!) with a tweet that says “Long live community radio. Yay @KBOO” or something clever that always includes KBOO’s handle (@KBOO).
  • Peak times for Twitter are 8 - 9 am, 12 -1 pm and 5 - 6 pm -- so if you are able to promote your show during those times, it is more likely to be seen. That said, it is always that time SOMEWHERE in the world, so keep that in mind as well (ie. if your show is on at midnight, it’s 8 am in Europe, and you may have Twitter followers there who are looking for something to listen to!)


Sample Facebook posts:

  • Did you know that @KBOORadio is one of the oldest and most revered #communityradio stations in the country? This gem of a station is member-supported and 100% independent. #supportKBOO.
  • You count on @KBOORadio to keep you informed about local activist groups and their activities - before, during and after actions. KBOO offers broadcast access to activists shut out of mainstream media. KBOO hosts encourage exploration of radical approaches to problem solving, and making the world a better place. And KBOO counts on the #community to support the station!

What/how to post on Facebook:

  • Like KBOO’s posts! All of them. From your personal or show accounts. Please!
  • From your personal or show accounts: Repost the KBOO pages’ posts whenever you can. If they don't appear on your feed, go to the KBOO Facebook page and see whatever is posted there, then like and comment on it! Do this rather than rewriting the post yourself - the posts will go farther into our networks if you SHARE the KBOO page’s posts rather than make a new one yourself.


On Instagram, post pictures from inside the studio and out in the field, include the phone number, and tag @KBOORadio #supportKBOO #joinKBOO #thankyouKBOO and add your own reason for supporting community radio!

Thoughts on Posting Photos:

  • Take photos! Use your own phone or ask your staff person for the KBOO phone.
  • Post them to your own Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Vine, Snapchat and/or Tumblr
  • Tag @KBOO and your guests on the photo
  • Ideas for photos: You and your guests with signs or KBOO stickers, people active in the studio, volunteers, activities, cute kids (with the guardian’s permission), and of course, KBOO puppies.
  • If you have live music or exciting guests, someone from the social media team may come in the studio to take photos or short videos, so don't be alarmed when they show up! You can also livestream the show yourself! We have a KBOO phone that is available for KBOO program hosts to livestream at KBOO - just email socialmedia[at] to request the use of the KBOO phone.
