Timing and Cues

Program has no internal breaks. We recommend stations air NPR Newscast to 6-minutes past, then have announcer read suggested intro before airing program. Program ends with applause (fades), over which announcer may read suggested outro, then move on to other station continuity (forward promotion, weather, Legal ID). Stations may of course modify the in/out scripts to suit their own format.
