Advisory Council


The Louisville Public Media Advisory Council serves as an extra set of “eyes and ears” for the radio stations. The purpose of the council is to represent the diverse interests of the listening public in regular meetings with the staff and management of Louisville Public Media, and to serve as the stations’ ambassadors in the community. The council’s activities provide a way for citizens to become more involved with the station.

The Advisory Council periodically reviews the program goals and significant decisions of Louisville Public Media and advises station management with respect to whether programs and other policies are meeting the needs of the communities served by the stations. The role of the council is solely advisory in nature.


Meetings of the Advisory Council are quarterly and are open to the public. Join us in 2014-2015 on September 9, 2014 December 9, 2014, March 10, 2015 and June 9, 2015 at 4:30 p.m. in the board room at Louisville Public Media, 619 S. Fourth Street.
