Radio Playoff Guidelines

Playoff Radio Broadcast Guidelines

Radio stations broadcasting a post-season event in all conferences in all sports are now required to do the following:

  1. Receive permission from both schools and the venue.
  2. Play the UIL Institutional Spot and UIL Sponsor Spot once during the broadcast, for a total of two commercial minutes. The commercials can be downloaded below.
  3. Fill out the following Radio Playoff Request form prior to the broadcast.
  4. Read the state championship promotional information twice during the broadcast.  

The UIL will not approve or deny radio stations for any post-season games prior to the state championships. A radio station must have permission from both schools and the venue for each game, without this permission the schools or venue can deny a radio station the right to broadcast that game.  

Radio stations will need to submit a media credential request for UIL State Championship Events, and pay the rights fee associated with a live play-by-play broadcast of that sport. Check each event's radio FAQs for more information about radio broadcasts at state championship events.
