A Service for Nonprofits, Community Groups, Public Agencies and Institutions
Boston Neighborhood Network welcomes qualifying organizations to submit Public Service Announcements and bulletins of upcoming events, classes or lectures on the BNN Community Message Board.
The BNN Community Message Board runs between programs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on our two cable channels, BNN News & Information | Xfinity Channel 9 | RCN Channel 15 | Fios Channel 2161 and BNN Community TV | Xfinity Channel 23 | RCN Channel 83 | Fios Channel 2160 | and is streamed live on our website, to reach a global audience. PSAs are also available on our radio station, WBCA-LP 102.9FM. If you represent a nonprofit organization or public agency that serves Boston you may be eligible to use the BNN Community Message Board.
The BNN Community Message Board is an effective, inexpensive way for your organization or agency to expand public awareness of your programs, extend your services, and reach out to your target constituency, including communities who speak languages other than English.
You can send us your PSA or BNN can design and create a Community Message Board posting for you.
Please read the Community Message Board Guidelines and complete the PSA/Message Board Request Form. Send the completed form by email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please include your contact info for follow-up questions, dates you wish to show the message, and any other pertinent information.
