What could be better than an on-air version of your beloved NewsWorks.org? How ’bout writing the music for it.
NewsWorks is hosting a contest for our new program, “NewsWorks Tonight,” and we’re looking for local musicians to write the theme.
Our fast-paced drive time broadcast will feature a mix of news, culture and discussion. And music, we need some music.
Here’s what we’re looking for:
Original, instrumental tracks
Billboard — Length: 59 seconds
This track is used to advertise what’s on the show right before the news cast. It should have a distinct beginning and ending
Intro — Length: about 1 minute
This track will be used for the beginning of the show. Again, it should have an opening that perks up the ears, but it will be faded out, so it doesn’t need a distinct ending
Promo beds — Length: 29 seconds each
These tracks will be used for short promos that advertise the show. Since the content will vary, they should convey different “moods”; upbeat, contemplative, serious, etc. Submit up to 3 beds in this category
Close music– Length 2:30
This music will play under the credits as we wrap up the show. It will be faded in and out, so it doesn’t need to have a distinct beginning or ending.
