Public Service Announcements

As part of their media awareness campaign, the NMU Earthkeeper Student Team recently recorded three different thirty-second Public Service Announcements for distribution to Marquette area radio stations. Each PSA features a unique message spoken by a different member of the team.

Earthkeepers Public Service Announcements

Public Service Announcement 1

The first Public Service Announcement was voiced by Adam Magnuson.

I like my martinis dirty, not my water. We are living alongside the Great Lakes, the largest freshwater reservoirs in the world. Take a moment to give thanks, get to know your watershed, and do your part to preserve and protect our water. Let’s keep the Great Lakes great.

Public Service Announcement 2

The second Public Service Announcement was voiced by Tom Merkel.

When Twinkies were going to be discontinued, it was national news. Today, up to 200 species could go extinct. Why aren’t they in the news?

Public Service Announcement 3

The third Public Service Announcement was voiced by Katelin Bingner.

The Great Lakes basin is part of the path Monarch butterflies travel during their summer migrations. Help them make their 3000 mile journey by preserving their most vital food source, the common milkweed.

PSA Production

The PSAs were produced by Obadiah Metivier of Middle Ear Media in Marquette.

Obadiah also recorded the voice over for the closing tag and provided the original music.

This Public Service Announcement was brought to you by NMU’s Student Earthkeepers, a partner with Northern Michigan’s 2014 environmental initiative.
