The list below is designed to help programmers to syndicate their shows with other stations.

Best Practice: Search the station contact list for those stations who are interested in your type of programming and then contact them by their preferred method listed. 

Include a demo/example show, a bit about you and any other instructions.  Note that each radio station determines its own schedules, and may or may not use the Community Radio Exchange to access the content. 

Finally, please do not abuse the system, often the staff/volunteers are very busy.

What I would have liked to see in this survey is information on how we can help other stations reach quotas that they may be struggling with. At CJSW, there is a plethora of content from diverse voices that we'd love to get out to other stations. If syndication is possible, what are the best routes to contact other stations and distribute that content?
