Community Advisory Board

The Louisville Public Media Community Advisory Board (CAB) serves as an extra set of “eyes and ears” for the radio stations. The purpose of the Advisory Board 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 CAB’s activities provide a way for citizens to become more involved with the station.

The Community Advisory Board 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 CAB is solely advisory in nature.

Join us in 2015-2016 on September 15 (rescheduled from Sept. 8), 2015 December 8, 2015, March 8, 2016 and June 14, 2016 at 4:30 p.m. in the board room at Louisville Public Media, 619 S. Fourth Street.
