Origination:
NIGHT CALL originates in New York at 11:30 ~.m.
Eastern Time. The program is brought to your
community by broadcast lines.
Cost of broadcast lines to your telephone company test board
is borne by the producer. The loop and bridging
costs from the telephone company to station are
borne by the station.
Charges:
There are no program charges. Production costs
are the responsibility of the producer.
Station
Cutaways:
There will be three 70 second breaks--one each
quarter hour-- during the one-hour broadcast: a
10 second station ID and 60 seconds for local
commercials. Revenue from commercials is the
station's. The choice and responsibility for
such advertising rests with the station.
Public
Service
Spots:
Public ser vic e spo ts will be fed down the network
line f or the stations which want a completely
pack~ged program.
7 Second
Delay:
NIGHT CALL will be fe d live to the stations with
no delay. There are two reasons why the show is
not delayed nationally:
a.
The producer cannot assume this r e sponsibility legally for the station; therefore,
no attempt to do s o is made.
b.
Acceptable air expressio n changes from
market to market. What is acceptable
in Chicago may be unacceptable in
Sioux City.

�Producer
Precautions:
The producer does have several precautions against
abuse on the air:
a. The calls are screened before being
placed on the air.
b.
The host has override capability
over both telephone lines. When the host
speaks, the gain automatically lowers on
the audience and guest lines.
c. NIGHT CALL permits any point of view
to be expressed.
Ideas are attacked but persons
are not. This basic respect for persons has
effectively negated the bigot in the past.
d. The audience caller can be taken off
the air at the flip of the switch by the host.
S t ation
Identification
on the Network:
Partici pating stations are identified on the
air when a listener calis in from that station's
listening audience.
Audience
Callers:

anywhere in the country. This cost is the
responsibility of the producer.

sent down the line 15 minutes prior to starting
