Local News Deadlines

media graphic

Why do we ask for items 4 - 6 weeks in advance?

Like many NPC departments, our staffing is very limited. We provide media coverage for 9 campuses and centers and district-wide. We are not sitting in our offices just waiting for your phone call. So please be patient. We'll get your release out as soon as possible.


Local radio stations air Public Service Announcements (PSAs) as time permits, generally in a community calendar format. They request items at least 14 days in advance.


City 4 in Show Low will include our announcements IF the event is in Show Low and is of general interest. They will not publicize classes and workshops.

Only paid advertisements appear on CableOne. There are no PSAs.


There are twice-weekly, weekly, bi-monthly and monthly publications in the NPC service area. Only major news items will be picked up by metro-area newspapers. Here are a few examples of local deadlines:
