The Alabama Radio Network provides hourly newscasts from 6:30 am through 6:30 pm Central Time six days a week.  Each newscast is four minutes long, including commercial break, and is repeated at :55 past the hour and the top of the hour for your programming convenience.  The newscasts are formatted so that your station can take a 3-minute version (2 minutes of content plus a 60-second network commercial) or a 4-minute version (thereís another minute of content after the commercial).  Normally all three newscasts are identical except during breaking news events.

          The ARN news updates are fed at :50 past the hour and provide a headline service ideal for music intensive radio stations.  Each update is 2 minutes long, including a 60-second commercial.   

Another valuable news department service is ARN OnDemand.  This site includes news actualities and correspondent reports from reporters throughout the state including our bureau in the state capital.  This material is designed to enhance your stationís locally produced newscasts by providing statewide reporters and creditability!
