Call Talk Radio

How to Call Talk Radio

Calling talk radio shows is an easy way to bring the issues to thousands of people.

1. Find a talk radio show. You can search the web for stations you normally listen to or simply search for local talk radio shows in your city. Most stations have a call-in number listed on their website.

2. Listen in. Make notes of how you’ll inject global poverty into the discussion being addressed. Write down the question or comment you want to say.

3. Call in. Depending on how busy the lines are, you might have trouble getting through initially. Be persistent. Try a different day. When you do get through, a staffer will ask you what you’d like to discuss and then put you on hold until the radio host calls on you.

4. Say it. Once you’re on air, make your comment or ask your question. That’s all there is to it! You just brought the issue to thousands of people.

Tip: Write a cheat sheet of facts and info to use.

This is How it’s Done!
