Our friends at Waze want to help in areas effected by Hurricane Harvey.
Hurricane Harvey has devastated areas across Texas, Louisiana, and much of the American south. Together, we’re working to get the people of Texas and Louisiana back to their routines, one free #HarveyCarpool at a time.
The Waze and Waze Carpool apps work in tandem to help riders and drivers on similar routes find each other, ride together, and navigate around road closures and hazards with real-time updates from the Waze Community.
What can you do? – Make announcements on-air and through your station’s social media to notify your listeners about Waze Carpool.

Most radio admins and producers are well versed with the automatic tweets by their broadcasting tools. Its really easy. I will explain according to Radionomy but steps are the same.
STEP 1. Connect your radio to your social accounts Twitter or Facebook.
STEP 2. Upload jingles or promos for your station to your broadcasting tool. They can be audio ads about the app, how people can download free and listen via your new app. Even instrumental fillers of say 2 minutes can do.
STEP 3. After filling the metadata – track title and artist info e.g App promo – Joyful FM, and cover art; make sure you add automatic tweet info that will be tweeted automatically to your Twitter account or posted to your Facebook radio page. Same as how you add your #NowPLAYING info. Use the social share buttons of your broadcasting tools to do this . Here are examples of the text you can use for automatic tweets every time the promo or jingle plays on your radio : “Download our free app from Appstore /iTunes, GooglePLAY and Blackberry World. Search for Joyful FM” “Listen from your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch! Download free app here > http://goo.gl/nwYHFA or http://bit.do/joyfulfmApp “Listen from your Android device. Download now our free Joyful FM app here > http://goo.gl/DekyLa “This is what your twitter followers or fb fans will see every time your promo/ jingle or instrumental plays. Just like your #NowPLAYING tags.
Saves you time and your followers will see lots of them a day and will end up clicking!
