Programme Exchange?


Recommended Posts

If anyone here is interested in running one of our shows, "Litopia After Dark" on their station they're very welcome:

 

http://litopia.tv/gd

 

LAD has been going three years now, and our format is pretty settled. We have four panellists, a very active chatroom & chatroom spokesperson, and the presenter (me). We talk about things that interest writers - which is pretty much everything. And whatever interests writers usually interests readers, too.

 

It might make a good overnight show for stations that normally carry music programming.

 

Our guests contribute on a Creative Commons basis. There would be no charge to carry the show - but you couldn't use it commercially. it's available in both 128k and 64k mp3s.

 

The show is uncensored, so does sometimes get a little adult in its humour. I'd look at producing a bleeped version if there was enough interest.

 

At the same time, I'd be interested in carrying other shows on our station (i.e. a programme exchange). We are a talk station, so obviously that does restrict things a bit.

Hi there Catfish Pete,

 

I'd be interested in putting your shows on my station. I'm just starting it and I'm in the process of working on programming for it. I run a free creative development blog at http://www.threewestcreative.com. I'm also a writer and publisher so on the blog I write articles about publishing and writing among other creative things. I'll be developing some new talks shows as well, particularly on creative writing. Feel free to contact me from the site or send me a PM if you are ok with me adding your show to my station.

 

Cheers!

Thank you so much. Will do. We just switched hosting companies and should have our station in full swing soon. I'll let you know as soon as we have some of your content on air.

 

Cheers!

How long is your show?

 

Is it possible to get the show broken up into 18-20 min segments? This is the way we rebroadcast other syndicated shows and prefer this type of format.

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

The Program Exchange is a "barter syndicator", distributing programming on behalf of the shows' producers, many of them having their own cash distribution services. Instead of paying a cash fee, television stations who run these programs agree to a barter exchange (hence the syndicator name), wherein the station agrees to air a certain number of commercials for various General Mills products per program (Toyota commercials during the DFS era). This arrangement allows for the programs to air on stations that may not have large budgets to acquire them.
