An Audio News Release usually consists of newsworthy information about a timely issue, upcoming event or interesting news feature
An audio news release, or ANR, is an audio news package that takes the form of a radio news story, but the message is controlled by the client. Strauss Media Strategies, Inc. has had extensive experience in writing, producing and distributing ANRs on behalf of hundreds of clients.
Our staff brings extensive experience as writers within the radio news industry to the task of creating ANRs, and our digital recording and editing facilities ensure the highest quality.
Soundbites, or actualities, recorded by Strauss Media Strategies staff, are usually included as part of an ANR. We have access to an extensive group of top-flight professional voice talent to give your ANR the sound that you desire.
Once the ANR is written, produced, recorded and given a final edit, it is distributed to radio outlets across the country. Strauss Media Strategies has special arrangements with national radio networks such as ABC Radio and CBS Radio for general distribution of ANRs across the country. In addition we can provide guaranteed broadcast of an ANR on three national networks and more than thirty state networks. And, if it meets the needs of a specific campaign, the Strauss Media Strategies staff can directly pitch the ANR to targeted radio stations in all areas of the country. Our services also include Spanish-language ANR services.
