APPLICATION PROCESS:

The allocation of Series time slots are based on a first come first served application process with consideration for studio space requirements, studio availability, channel availability and TRT (Total Running Time) priority. Any scheduling conflicts will be made known to the Producers shortly after the priority application period and resolved based on the discretion of the Station Manager and the Programming and Production Associate. Once you are approved for a time slot, you'll be required to submit your first week's file and make your payment. The payment link will be emailed out with your series approval notification. 


LIVE SERIES:

Live Series will only be available during specified time slots on SundayMonday & Tuesday. These slots will be listed in the Live Time options seen below on this application. A live series show must justify the space requirement for Studio 1. Series allocations will be made with respect to those space requirements. 

 

PRE-EMPTIONS:

Space and airtime preemptions can occur based on the discretion of the Station Manager with the following policies: no more than 2-times in a row in a 4-month Season and no more than 4 times in a 4-month Season. Austin Public staff will do its best to focus our programming and rentals during the open studio availability on Wednesday through Saturday and Producers will be given at least a 7-day notice of a pre-emption.
