Ad Copy on KXL

My first day at OEN was May 15, 2018. On my second day, I was asked to write copy for a radio spot on KXL. Our trade agreement with them was ending soon and we had two more radio spots left on the contract.

So, I met with our Executive Director and prepared a first draft. Then, I worked with our board member, a former staff writer for The Oregonian, to finalize the copy. Here are the two radio spots that ran on KXL for six weeks during the summer of 2018.
