Are you creating media that you’d like aired on our channels and streamed live on our website?

Anyone can submit a show to MNN at any time by following the directions below and adhering to our technical requirements.

Sponsors (that means you) are able to submit three types of shows:

Single

A Single show is a pre-produced broadcast that appears only once on MNN. We generally air Single shows within one week of application. A Single show can be 28-minutes or 58-minutes long. If your Single is longer or shorter than the required lengths please contact MNN's programming department at program@mnn.org

Series

A Series is a weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly program. We generally schedule new Series shows within two weeks of application. Every episode must be either 28-minutes or 58-minutes long. 

Note: You must have the first episode of your show completed to apply for a new Series show. 

Short Form

A Short-Form program is a program whose duration is between three and seven minutes. Short-Form programs will be treated as a type of “Special” by the MNN Programming Department and not as a Series. Short-Form programs will air in their entirety in Short-Form time slot blocks and at other times to be determined by the MNN Programming Department. MNN’s programming department will inform you of when your Short will air one week before it airs on MNN.
