Salem, OR - The Oregon Public Utility Commission is pleased to announce it will soon offer recorded audio comments from Commissioners and PUC staff on Commission activities.
The digital-quality comments will be available 24-hours a day via a toll-free phone number. The PUC's communications staff will produce the reports. The format will include a broadcast-style script and separate actualities.
The Commission is optimistic this service will give radio station news staffs in Oregon, Washington and Idaho access to timely reports on Commission activities, and provide the general public with a better understanding of how the PUC affects their lives on a daily basis.
In addition to news releases, the service will also be useful to publicize public hearings in Salem, around the state and provide reports of interest to specific geographic areas.
The Toll-Free PUC Radio News Service line is 1-877-459-3317.
