I had to record two pieces of audios in my own voice. The first piece of the audio was about the letting the audience know which radio they were listening to and the second piece was about the advertisement announcement.

I also had to download two sound pieces from SoundBible. One of the sound I used as a beep between the two audio pieces I recorded in my own voice and the second one was a little bit of music I used at the start of the advertisement announcement.

I followed the following steps to create the radio advertisement.

Step 1: I opened Audacity.

Step 2: I recorded the two pieces of announcements in my voice.1

Step 3: I imported the audio clips that I downloaded by clicking the File Menu and then Import.
