April 2010

On Sunday, April 25, 2010 CBS TV will air the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, “When Love is Not Enough – The Lois Wilson Story” at 9 pm Eastern / 8pm Central. The movie depicts the life of Lois and her struggles with her husband’s drinking. Lois is the Co-Founder of Al-Anon; her husband, Bill is the co-founder of AA. (Word Doc)

Please contact the local CBS affiliate (Word Doc), preferably by April 10th, and request they play the Al-Anon Public Service Announcement as their viewers of this movie may relate to Lois and will need to know where to find Al-Anon locally. Our PSA vendor, TV Access will gladly provide the format your station needs. To request a new copy of the PSA, the TV station should simply call 1-800-944-9134. WSO has provided a script to use when call CBS. A link to their memo to me is attached (Word Doc).

Also, please contact local newspapers and ask them to print our Press Release. If you need help here are the Instructions.

Then, please contact me by April 15 with who you contacted and how they responded. You can reach me via email at

To my fellow Al-Anons,

I’ve attached 3 documents from the WSO Public Outreach office. The first one provides some information on new PSA releases that are available for Al-Anon use. They are audio snippets. If needed or wanted, I will copy them for you from the Public Outreach site. Just let me know.

The last 2 documents are a release that can be used with your local newspaper. The news release memo provides directions for using the news release.

Feel free to contact me if you want additional information.

Yours in service,
